Stat!: We Say We Value Our Dental Health

In fact, according to a recent survey conducted by Philips Sonicare, 97% of adults “agreed that oral hygiene was the most important factor that contributes to a healthy lifestyle.” And 90% claimed to brush at least twice a day. (That number may be a little high.)

So, how well are we taking care of our teeth?

  • Percent of adults who brush the full recommended 2 minutes: less than half
  • Percent of adults with at least some tooth decay: 90
