Why Do Bad Teeth Knock Our Confidence?
In order to gain straight teeth confidence, we need to figure out why bad teeth knock our confidence. While being and looking unique is something to preach about, there’s always been a perception that having bad teeth is unattractive.
If you feel unconfident about your teeth, it is completely natural. There are several reasons why you may associate your teeth with negative connotations. The media, for one, are consistently churning out models and celebrities that have had work done to their teeth, therefore their pearly whites look almost unbelievable.
As a result, a mouth that doesn’t live up to this standard of ‘perfect’ because crookedness, decay, discolouration or missing teeth are seen as unsightly. In fact, research from Bupa Dental Care found that over a third of UK adults aren’t happy with their smile; leading to 27% avoiding showing their teeth when they smile, 22% avoiding having their photo taken, and 18% choosing to put their hand over their mouth when smiling.
These staggering figures prove that having the ideal smile is very much important for the vast majority of UK adults. Because of this interpretation of bad teeth, more younger people are beginning to get work done on their teeth or are getting braces. This counts for older generations too because there’s never a wrong time to have wires implanted into your mouth. To put it into perspective, 66% of adult patients that are seeking orthodontic treatment are 26-40 years old.
Why Do Braces Knock Our Confidence?
We may have got to the bottom of why bad teeth make us feel self-conscious, but would braces do the same? The perception of braces isn’t much different from having bad teeth. Braces are essentially steel-based wires that are attached to the teeth in order to manipulate them to form a straight alignment.
They are often known for correcting overbites, gaps and the overall health of the teeth. To top them off, elastic bands are also attached to them to ensure that movement is minimal. Not quite what you had in mind when attaining straight teeth confidence, right? Braces are mostly used during adolescence, however, adults can choose to have braces too.
Not only are they a sight for sore eyes, but they can also stop you from eating certain foods, and require regular trips to the orthodontist for tightening and maintenance. Because of these reasons alone, those past their teenage years are a lot more sceptical in getting braces as they can affect one’s working and personal life. But, what if we said this wasn’t the only option?
