Fresh Smile Clinic, a dentist Huddersfield reveals bizarre dental facts…
Did you know that we spend over 80 days in our lives brushing our teeth? Fresh Smile Clinic, a dentist Huddersfield, reveals a whole host of bizarre dental facts to keep you smiling.
Research has found that, in the UK, the average life span is just over 80 years and in that time we brush our teeth for at least two minutes a day, which is the equivalent to a whopping 118, 990, or in simple terms, 82 days!
That’s like playing over 1,300 footie matches or 16 test matches in the cricket world. You could also watch every single episode (60 in total) of Game of Thrones over 30 times each!
Fresh Smile Clinic wants to share this information with you to stress just how important our oral health is and we need to make sure we spend enough time on getting the basics right so we avoid things like gum disease, tooth loss and tooth decay.
Our very own Dr Kirrin Punia, explains: “We love research like this and it shows that people do take their teeth seriously, but we know that when dealing with actual facts people probably don’t spend two minutes a day brushing their teeth, but they really should!
“Brushing our teeth daily without exception really is the most effective way to keep our teeth and gums fresh and healthy as a dentist Huddersfield we want people to make sure they do just that.
“From drinking, speaking and eating, having good oral health means a lot to our mouths and if you look after it, your quality of life will be much better. A small amount of time dedicated to brushing will have a major impact on how you carry out your day-to-day.
In the United Kingdom, over 40,000 young people have had to have teeth removed as a direct result of tooth decay. To reverse this damming find, Fresh Smile Clinic believes everybody, especially parents need to lead the way to make sure this figure is reversed.
Remember, in the vast majority of cases, tooth decay is completely preventable!
On a brighter note, let’s take a look at some other weird and wonderful dental facts…
- Tooth Enamel is by far the hardest part of a person’s body.
- Back in the 1960s, almost 40% of the UK’s population had zero natural teeth.
- 5,000 gallons of saliva are produced by humans in their lifetime.
- The smile has been voted as the number one thing a person notices about somebody first.
