Six Month Smiles and Some Orthodontia History
Of course, whiteness on a crooked smile might be compared to lipstick on a pig. Over the past two decades, the number of US and Canadian teenagers in orthodontic treatment has nearly doubled, so that 80 percent are now in an orthodontist’s care, with the recommended average age of a first visit now 7. It was inevitable that the trend would expand to include parents, and finally adults in general. Adults now make up roughly a quarter of all orthodontics patients in the North America! Dental hardware has even come to be included in fashion: Models now wear braces in runway shows and shine on the cover of fashion magazines.
Interestingly, many studies, have found just how popular orthodontics have become.
According to one study from 2012, 38% of Americans would rule out a second date with someone with misaligned teeth, and those with straight teeth are 38% more likely to be perceived as smart. Americans, it was determined prefer a nice smile to clear skin and are willing to go to great lengths to get one, including giving up dessert (39 percent) or vacations (37 percent).
