One in Four men would like straighter teeth
(Posted on 21/11/16)
A new survey has revealed that 40% of the male participants have strong concerns about their appearance - with one in four putting teeth straighteneing at the top of their wish list of what they'd change.
The aim of the survey was to find out about men's confidence in their appearance and the likelihood of them seeking treatments to tackle physical imperfections.
The results showed that those aged 18-24 were most likely to have looked into treatments to change their appearance, despite being one of the most likely age groups to feel it was wrong for men to take steps to change their looks.
Issues regarding tooth appearance ranked highly as a personal concern. The statistics revealed that just over a quarter (26%) of men surveyed admitted that if they could change one thing about themselves, they would straighten their teeth.
The survey, conducted in October 2016 on behalf of Align Technology, had a sample size of 300 men of all age ranges, socio-economic groups and geographical regions in the UK.
While the survey results showed many men would like an improved look, there is a reluctance to take the plunge. However a significant 63% of men surveyed would look for ways to have treatment to alter the positioning of their teeth if they had concerns, and 24% would consider treatment if it was discreet.
