A Quarter Of Men Want Straighter Teeth
A new survey has revealed that 26% of men would like to straighten their teeth.
The survey was taken to find out more about men’s confidence in their appearance and showed that those aged 18-24 were most likely to have looked into treatments to change something, despite being the most likely age group to say they thought it wrong for a man to try to change his appearance.
Issues surrounding tooth appearance ranked highly as a concern, with statistics showing just over a quarter of men surveyed admitting they would straighten their teeth if they were given the chance to change one thing.
The survey taken in October 2016 by Align Technology, asked men of all age ranges, socio-economic groups and geographical regions asked men what they were most likely to change about themselves, and although they said they would like to change their appearance, many were reluctant to take the plunge.
The survey also showed interesting regional variations:
- Those from the South West and West Midlands were least likely to consider themselves happy with their appearance (only 57% and 56% respectively saying they were happy)
- Only 2% of those surveyed from Yorkshire and Humber were confident about their teeth
- Those most likely to be confident about their teeth were from Scotland
