Understanding the Connection Between Attractiveness and Oral Health

Have you noticed that people who are generally deemed as ‘attractive’ tend to have excellent oral health? If you think about it and start to browse through pictures of generally attractive people you’ll realize that there is definitely a connection between the two – and understanding that connection could help you to benefit from it.

Attractiveness of Teeth

When it comes to facial appearances, your teeth inevitably end up being a point of focus. People find that their gaze is automatically drawn to a person’s smile, and as such its ‘attractiveness’ plays a huge role in how attractive a person is generally deemed to be.

Needless to say, oral health plays an important part in all of this – as things like gum disease, misaligned or crooked teeth, stains, and even cracked or chipped teeth can all detract from the ‘attractiveness’ of your teeth. On the flipside, good oral health combined with a pearly set of teeth can dazzle, impress, and even make you look younger.

Symmetry and Facial Structure

One of the common problems that people with poor oral health who have misaligned, crooked, cracked or even missing teeth constantly face is issues with their facial structure. More often than not this translates into problems involving their bite, and that in turn will affect the symmetry of their face.

Although nobody has a perfectly symmetrical face, the more symmetrical the facial structure, the more attractive it generally appears. Having issues involving your bite can affect the symmetry of your jaw, lips, cheeks, and profile – which will definitely impact your overall ‘attractiveness’.

Self-Confidence

Last but not least, oral health has a big part to play in terms of the psychological factor. Suffice to say, people who have good oral health and don’t suffer from any dental issues tend to have higher self-confidence and self-esteem – both of which are highly attractive traits.

When someone is more confident in themselves, it can affect their social interactions in numerous ways – and people will respond to that self-confidence on a subconscious level.

Despite the fact that attractiveness is really very subjective, these trends are common enough – if not universal. Odds are you may have even observed one (or more) of them for yourself, and that should be motivation enough to improve your own oral health.

One of the best places to start doing so is at the Basingstoke dentist at the Linden Dental Centre, 1-2 Linden Court, Linden Avenue, Old Basing, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG24 7HS. Not only will they be able to help you to improve your overall oral health, but they can also provide you with recommendations on how to correct any dental issues that you may currently be facing.
