The American Dental Association (ADA) , Procter & Gamble ( makers of Crest) and Oral-B conducted a survey and found that from all the physical features which included the body, eyes and hair, the smile outranks all of these features. They also found that men did not maintain this feature as well as women:halle_berry1  

  • Men brushed twice daily only 66% of the time.
  • Women on the other hand brushed twice daily 86% of the time.
  • Men replace their toothbrushes on average, every 5 months.
  • Women replace their toothbrushes every 3-4 months, which the ADA recommends.

The survey found that 49%  flossed once or more per day.  Of those surveyed, 1 out of 3 believed that if they saw a bit of blood in the sink, it was no reason to be concerned and was probably normal. This is in no way normal and could certainly signify  gum disease or other health problems.  Lets all start smiling again and hopefully make the world a happy place again !
