CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jul 17, 2018–A new national survey released today reveals Americans are, in fact, flossing; albeit in somewhat odd places: nearly four in 10 (39 percent) of U.S. adults admit to flossing their teeth while in the car; seven percent admitted to flossing while on a date; six percent have flossed on an airplane, and five percent admit they’ve flossed in a work meeting. While some flossing—no matter where—is better than none at all, only seven percent of Americans name flossing as most important to their personal care routines when it comes to perfecting their smiles, revealing that adults can be better educated about healthy smiles, and gums. Periodontists, dentistry’s experts in the treatment and prevention of periodontal disease, have long touted the importance of regular brushing and flossing. Along with brushing teeth twice a day and an annual comprehensive periodontal evaluation, daily flossing is critical to maintaining health gums. The survey, from the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), was conducted online May 30 and 31, 2018, by Atomik Research among 1,001 U.S. adults.
