The relationships between tooth brushing frequency and personal higiene habits in teenagers.
A survey of 904, 14-17 year old shool children from secondary schools around Nairobi was done to find out if there was any relationship between toothbrushing frequency and personal hygeine habits.
The students completed a questionnaire anonymously in class.
Female students brushed their teeth more often than the male students. 62.2% of the females and 50.1% of the males brushed their teeth more than once a day.
Of those students who brushed their teeth more than one a day, 52% bathed daily, 22% used perfumes/deodorants daily and 50.1% always washed their hands after visiting the lavatory.
