57% of Canadians want bright smile, but only 4% maintain proper oral hygiene
from Dental Health Magazine
Unbelievably, despite the fact that a healthy looking smile is highly desired, a recent survey indicates that a mere four percent of Canadians actually engage in regular, proper oral hygiene practices. The main reasons that many people fail to take good care of their teeth are cited as being a lack of the time needed to provide adequate oral care and fatigue. In all, 57 percent of Canadians surveyed believe that having a great looking smile is important, but less than five percent of all people are willing to put in the extra steps it takes to ensure that they actually maintain a healthy smile.
