Attendants of the Festival Ignore the Oral Wellness
According to the research, one of 10 surveyed festival attendants did not clean teeth during the entire carrying out activities.
Recent research made by the Polo Sugar Free and oral Health foundation proved that almost 40% of festival attendants either clean their teeth only once or even less times per day.
President of the Oral Health Foundation states that it is worthwhile not to ignore oral care even throughout different events, as disregarding our health can cause several problems and have gruesome consequences.
Festive event attendants should understand that superfluity of junk, sweet and acid food and alcoholic drinks require more attention to oral care than in our daily life.
It was also found out, that if we ignore teeth brushing, the risk of teeth decay contraction increase threefold.
Regardless of the research outcome, most people find the first thing to be packed before the trip is actually a tooth brush.
The research shows that for most people it is a priority to pack a toothbrush (more than 25%) than to take deodorants (more than 21%) and wipes for babies (17%).
Polo Sugar Free member Catherine Wragg says that fortunately people have at least promising intentions in relations to oral care, however, intentions are not as important as what we do, so people should not only intent but also do something for our health.
Ignoring oral care can have horrendous consequences such as bad and not fresh breath, teeth decay and loss of teeth in numerous cases.
Organizers of the festival are encouraging people not only just to pack a brush but also to implement it at least two times a day during within minutes and to use fluoride toothpastes. It is also important to have at hand and eat only mint without sugar after we have eaten or drunk something.
