Could unhealthy teeth affect your love life?


The chances are that when looking for a new partner, people have a set of ideals in mind for that special someone. It could be a person’s eye, hair, physique or personality. However, what is the most sought after feature when looking for a potential date?

A study in 2013 by surveyed 5,481 singles of both sexes to investigate what was important for a person when looking for a new relationship. The results showed that the number one featurepeople value was actually their teeth. Fifty eight percent of men, and a staggering seventy one percent of women said that healthy teeth were the most important out of all attributes. A previous UK study in 2012 also found that people took into consideration the colour and spacing between teeth.

New research suggests that people reaching young adulthood around the turn of the millennium feel just as strongly about teeth as the older generations do. Chief scientific advisor for, Doctor Helen Fisher, was not shocked by the results. She was quoted in a USA Today article as saying, “From a Darwinian perspective, good teeth are a real indication of your health — how much you drink, smoke, what you’re eating.” It just goes to show that good dental care can have wider reaching benefits than just a healthy mouth.




67% of people would be put off dating someone if they had bad teeth


Although most people do not add ‘must have good teeth’ to their preferences for online dates, a new study has revealed that the vast majority of daters would be put off if they met someone for the first time and they had a ‘bad’ set of teeth.

According to a website survey, a massive 67% of people on the dating scene would decline a second date with someone who had bad teeth – with 76% of women agreeing that stained or crooked teeth were a deal breaker for them on a first date. However, their male counterparts were less picky; only 57% of men asked were in agreement. conducted the survey and revealed that some people have strange ideas about the state of our teeth – with 4% of respondents admitting they assume someone is intelligent if they have straight teeth, and 12% linking good teeth with popularity.

Single men and women name good teeth as number one asset in prospective partners


Men and women don’t always agree on everything, but according to a study carried out by dating website, singletons of both genders cited good teeth as being the most important thing when it comes to finding the perfect partner. Almost 5,500 adults aged twenty-one or over were asked how they would rank several assets on a first date and a staggering 71% of women named white, straight teeth as number one, with 58% of men in agreement.

Second place was given to ‘grammar’ in both lists, then came hair, clothes, tattoos, and fingernails – in similar percentages for men and women, although women voted for tattoos/no tattoos over hair and nails.

Whilst this might make both sexes look pretty superficial, a second survey was carried out about important factors in relationships, with men ranking ‘Someone I can trust and confide in’ as number one, and women choosing ‘Treats me with respect.’ It seems men are interested in prospective partners who are physically attractive and have a good sense of humour, whilst women are generally looking for someone who has similar values to them and can communicate well.

Interestingly, the survey found that the least important asset for both genders turned out to be an eagerness to settle down and marry.
