• Aesthetic Dentistry May Not Make You Happier

    Dentists need the support of health psychologists to enhance patients’ satisfaction with their appearance before they embark on aesthetic dental procedures.

    These are the findings of a study by Sharmila Sarin, supervised by Dr. Koula Asimakopoulou, and colleagues from King’s College London that will be presented at the British Psychological Society’s Division of Health Psychology annual conference on Wednesday 11 September in Brighton.

    In the study 60 participants completed the Slade Body Satisfaction Scale and a Visual Analogue Scale assessing satisfaction with their appearance before and after their dental work. They also completed a short version of the Big Five personality test before their operation.

    Irrespective of the dental procedure performed, people who were happiest about their appearance before receiving aesthetic dental treatment were those that were the happiest after treatment; dissatisfaction with one’s appearance seen in those high on neuroticism persisted after aesthetic dental work.

    Sharmila Sarin and Dr Koula Asimakopoulou said: “We wanted to establish whether personality and the views that people have about their appearance before receiving aesthetic dental treatment would influence satisfaction with the outcomes of aesthetic dental procedures.”

    “We found that it is in the patients’ and dentists’ interest to ensure that patients receiving aesthetic dental work start from as high a point of satisfaction with current appearance as possible. This will enhance the chances that they will be satisfied with the results of aesthetic dental treatment. Neuroticism is also likely to interfere with satisfaction with aesthetic dental work.”

    Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy <a href="http://google.com/">google</a&gt; At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works. http://google.com/

    Oh, c’mon. I can bet it will make you happier. At least because you will be more confident. I hate when people say something like Aesthetic Dentistry won’t make you happy or plastic surgery. How do you know? why so straight?
