People are brushing their teeth way more after smelling their breath with a mask on, Seventy-five percent of Americans don’t kiss their partner when they wake up because of dreadful morning breath, according to new research.
According to a new study, 75 per cent of Americans don't kiss their mate when they wake up due to awful morning breath.
A poll of 3,000 Americans found 81 percent say bad breath is a massive turn-off and almost a quarter (22 per cent) have broken things off with a partner due to a bad breath problem.
OnePoll's research in collaboration with Dr Squatch aimed to expose how people handle their morning and night teeth brushing habits and discovered more than half (57 per cent) of those surveyed claim COVID-19 and wearing a mask has enabled their much more conscious of their bad breath.
More than half of respondents (52 per cent) are concerned about their bad breath because they don't want to be perceived as 'dirty.'
About 41 per cent say they're worried about getting bad breath since they don't want to get off as unappealing while another 36 per cent are worried that their lousy breath could stop people from taking it further.
Although it may be their faults, as 35 per cent of surveyed Americans agree that they don't clean their teeth twice a day — almost one in ten say they don't even clean once a day.
But for others, brushing their teeth is a ritual required to make them feel like a human.
Seventy-nine per cent say they have to clean their teeth in the early morning; otherwise, they'll be feeling off for the rest of the day.
The typical respondent says they will go just 14 minutes after waking up with unbrushed teeth until they start feeling gross.
And if 63 per cent of respondents don't clean their teeth at night, they think they're not going to get a good night's rest.
Especially at night brushing will also counter the attraction to a late-night snack, and often 63 per cent of Americans claim they brush to avoid feeding themselves.
Sadly, 34 per cent of those surveyed are struggling to remember to twice a day clean their teeth.
A spokesperson for Dr Squatch stated:
"Even though people feel strongly that brushing their teeth is an important part of their daily lives, it's clear that there's major room for improvement in the experience. We wanted to elevate brushing from a bothersome chore that you have to force yourself to do twice a day, to an engaging part of a healthy morning and night routine."
Nearly half (47%) of respondents have both a morning and evening routine.
Unfortunately, 36% are more likely to miss their nighttime brushing routine most frequently.
A spokesperson for Dr Squatch added:
"We all know how hard it is to build new habits and routines. People are looking for a toothpaste that provides health benefits tailored specifically to their daily routines and needs at different times of the day. Your morning mouth and night mouth are not the same, our dynamic duo divides and conquers to give your teeth exactly what they need when they need it."
