MILWAUKEE -- A trip to the dentist may be in order for millennials.

A new survey from "Hello Products" finds the average millennial can go two or more days without brushing their teeth.

The Vegan-friendly company studied the habits of 2,000 Americans for their research.

Three in 10 millennials only brush their teeth once a day, and they're making it worse by avoiding the dentist.

Almost 22 percent of people surveyed avoid getting a professional cleaning because they dislike the product taste. Others have a general fear of sitting in the dentist's chair because of treatment pain or a past negative experience.
