Too many American adults are unhappy with their smile. In fact, according to a recent survey conducted by the American Association of Orthodontics more than 1/3 of adults reported they didn’t like their smile. What better time than right now, to promise yourself or someone you love a beautiful new smile.
Let’s take a closer look at the details of this study of 1,000 U. S adults 18 years of age and older.
Facebook untagging. 48 percent of Americans 18-24 actually untagged a photo of themselves on Facebook because they didn’t like their smile. More than one third of those surveyed indicated that if their smiles were improved their social life would be better as well.
What do you think is the biggest dating turnoff among men and women? If you hadn’t guessed already, it’s bad teeth. When considering a potential love interest, a whopping 77% of women surveyed in the AAO study indicated that crooked teeth are worse than a receding hairline. Furthermore, the survey found that 22 percent of Americans who are unhappy with their smile think that better teeth would lead to a better love life.
On a professional level. 78 percent of Americans perceive adults with crooked teeth to be unsuccessful. Fourteen percent of those unhappy with their teeth felt that they might be missing out on a better job. What do you think?
