Bad teeth ‘has impact on romantic life and career’

Posted by Joanne Mellor

New research has indicated people with bad teeth could see their romantic lives and careers affected as a result.

A poll conducted by Bupa revealed that almost two-thirds of individuals (63 per cent) think poor oral health may prevent someone from being able to find a partner.

However, only half (53 per cent) of the respondents to the research indicated that they see their dentist on a regular basis, while one in seven (14 per cent) has not visited a dentist in the last four years.

Brian Franks, clinical director of dentistry for Bupa Health and Wellbeing, said: “Being happy with your teeth can have a big impact on your confidence and this can affect your work and relationships.”

Some 52 per cent stated nice teeth could help a person to get a job.

This comes shortly after chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation Dr Nigel Carter highlighted the fact that problems with teeth could lead to a person’s confidence being affected.
