Ask yourself, when was the last time you changed your toothbrush...? Not sure? Well, experts tell us that you should replace your brush: every 2-3 months, or before the bristles become frayed, or after we have been ill. Do you do this?
"Every tooth in a man's head is more valuable than a diamond."
~Miguel de Cervantes
If the answer's no..? Well don't worry, you're not alone! It's estimated that up to 75% of us don't replace our brush when we're supposed to.
"So what!" we hear you silently cry, "It doesn't matter!" - Well actually, when we take a quick look at some of the stats, it turns out that it is kind of important:
- 80% of adults have at least 1 filling, with the average being 7!
- 66% have visible plaque, which can directly impact your self-confidence
- 48% of the population are unhappy with their teeth, with 29% suffering from regular dental pain
And for those of us that have children? The stats here are even more worrying so we really do need to sit up and take notice:
- Tooth decay is the top reason why children have to take time off school
- It is the #1 reason for hospital admissions for children between the ages of 5-9
- And worryingly, 1/3 of all children starting school each year will have signs of tooth decay
"If a patient cannot clean his teeth, no dentist can do it for him."
- Martin H. Fischer
