The Case of the Missing Millennials

The Case of the Missing Millennials


It seems millennials just can’t catch a break. Every day a new article finds it’s way onto the web detailing the shortfalls of the newest addition to the United States adult population. Unfortunately, this article might just fall into that category as well.

Participants of a recent study between the ages of 18 and 24 are more interested in using “Tinder” than brushing their teeth. Forty percent of those reported that they spent less than a minute brushing their teeth. However, the older segment of the millennial generation are doing a bit better than their younger counterparts. Those surveyed that were ages 25 to 34 were more likely to brush twice daily, but 20% of those said they missed brushing at least once regularly.

If you are too busy using Tinder to brush your teeth, you may want to reconsider. Your dating life might be a little more successful if you spend 2 minutes twice a day brushing your teeth so that you have a healthy and attractive smile. Not only will your teeth look better, your overall health will benefit. Contact the staff at Prescott Dentistry to assure your dating life won’t be hindered by an unhealthy smile!
