The importance of physical appearance
What is beautiful? Beauty standards vary from culture to culture and from person to person, but the mayority of the people prefer a face with wel balanced features, specially on the mouth area. The mouth is the center of attention since it is the permanent communication and expression canal.
People unsatisfied with their dental aaesthetic gets a complex over the looking of their teeth, even though this complex is unconscious in some cases. A study carried on by the American Association of Orthodontists stated that 75 children between 9 and 14 were shown many facial draws on which different facial defects were highlighted, such as: projecting teeth, prominent or tiny jaws, and ideal smiles showing the teeth propperly. After that, every child was asked to choose a draw which looked like themselves, and without variation, the child with the ideal smile was the selected draw.
We never stop developing the need to be accepted. An adult or a child feeling he has ugly teeth (because they are inclined, overlapped, or his jaws have no harmony with his face) can develop certain complex over his appearance. Usually thet cover their mouths when they laugh or eat, avoid smiling and try to hide their profile.
Self-esteem and orthodontics
Apart from the oral health, orthodontics is a way to get a nice appearance and with that a balanced self-esteem. The orthodontics treatment offers the patient a self-control sensation since it gives them the chance to get involved in the development of their personal appearance. Usually there is an increment in the self-confidence of patients even before the end of the orthodontics treatment.
The improving of the facial appearance obtained through the orthodontics treatment has showed great benefits regarding the self-esteem of patients and with that a better lifestyle.
