86% of women say they brush twice a day, compared to 66% of men. Men replace their toothbrushes less frequently than women. Studies show that men with a history of gum disease are more likely to develop certain kinds of cancer, such as kidney, pancreatic and blood cancers, than those with healthy gums.
