Britons pick teeth with screwdrivers, scissors ...
Survey: More than 60 percent use whatever’s handy to dislodge food

Here is the link.

Not ALL Brits have crooked teeth.
I feel the survey is a little flawed.

Tell me about it, i'm up against this every day at work. Hardly anyone seems to use floss regularly, some people don't even know what it is, still at least most people have a screwdriver, or scissors in the house........

Happy flossing

Ok, I don't know about brits, but just the thought of jamming a screwdriver in between my teeth is enough to make me cringe with mental PAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Believing that all Brits have bad teeth is as valid as believing all Americans are fat or all Australians are stupid. wink

Believing that all Americans are fat is wrong. Only two thirds of US adults are overweight, not all of them (source: Time magazine, May 15th, page 24, first paragraph!).

I think the poor dental situation in the UK is partly to blame on the amount of sugar consumed there. I've never seen so much chocolate/sweet desserts in my life. I'm talkin waaaay too sweet. I couldn't even eat most of the desserts I tried especially anything with toffee, my teeth almost hurt is was so sweet yet the locals were gobbling it down like it was nothing. Nothing like having your jaw glued shut by toffee  expressionless

I'm happy to run with these stereotypes.

Most of my life revolves around references to, "The Simpsons", and I believe there is a reference by the Simpson's dentist to, "The Big Book of British Smiles"

If all Americans are fat, then all Britons use a bow saw to clean their teeth. Fair enough to me.  Wink
