Only one in three adults in the United Kingdom brush their teeth for the recommended full two minutes per brushing.

The British Dental Health Foundation surveyed 1,000 people.

Most said they were just too busy with chores like getting to work on time, answering the phone, and child care.

According to the three year study, the average Brit brushes for just 45 seconds.
