The act of being enthralled has health benefits including the ability to speed up the recovery process associated with oral surgery, lowering blood pressure, and helping individuals who are depressed (Washington Post).
However, individuals struggling with poor oral health and an unattractive smile may have a harder time finding the feeling.
Various studies on the subject have occurred across the globe, and no matter of the where, one thing is for sure: Bad teeth and foul-smelling breath is a major turn off, and that alone can block love from blooming.
In America, Kelton Research looked into the matter. Their research indicated that 59 percent of Americans would be turned-off if their partner skipped the basic dental care behaviors of brushing or flossing his or her teeth for a week.
In Singapore, an online survey of 300 residents showed that sixty-six per cent would never date a person with bad breath and that eighty-seven percent of female participants said that men with bad breath are unattractive. No matter where you live, cosmetic dentistry can help improve the chances of you getting sexy!
