Study – Importance of brushing your teeth
Our parents were right about the importance of brushing your teeth. Here’s why! A study has shown that a white smile and evenly spaced teeth make people more attractive and more desirable to other humans. It is a sign of good health and genetic quality’s. Our teeth are equivalent to a peacock’s tail which aids in the process of choosing a mate.
I study was completed and researchers took 150 models and altered each of their visual teeth appearances. Researchers randomly computer generated and changed each model set of teethes to either discolored yellow, enhanced brightness and along with added spaces between teeth.
They then showed the 150 images to both men and female and they had to choose the most attractive models to the ugliest.
The results predictably showed that discolored yellow teeth were last on the list and were considered the ugliest of them all, followed shortly by teeth with gaps, this also was considered ugly. However, the models with brightest teeth came tops with being the prettiest of the models.
The top researcher stated ‘Males are thinking about attraction and females are in competition with each other.’ also, its believed that teeth are used to judge childhood illness, diet, age and genetic deficiency.
