Bad Breath is No. 1 Workplace Offender

November 22, 2005

The top oral care offense in the office is bad breath, according to 60% of respondents of Gillette’s “Oral-B Hummingbird Workplace Offender” survey. Other offenses include snapping gum (22%), picking of food between teeth (10%) and food stuck between teeth (7%). Also, more than half of respondents pass up corn, 38% pass on popcorn and 35% shun poppy seed bagels and muffins to avoid getting food stuck between teeth at work. And even though it prevents gum disease, 73% of survey respondents prefer grocery shopping to flossing.
