More than a quarter of US adults are dishonest with dentists about how often they floss their teeth
from Business Wire
A new national survey reveals more than a quarter of U.S. adults admit they lie to their dentist about how often they floss their teeth. Additionally, more than one-third of Americans would rather do an unpleasant activity like cleaning the toilet over daily flossing. Along with brushing teeth twice a day and an annual comprehensive periodontal evaluation from a periodontist, daily flossing is a critical component in the prevention of periodontal disease. The survey was conducted online in March by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Academy of Periodontology among 2,021 U.S. adults and among the top 10 U.S. markets.
