What Do Your Teeth Say About Your Personality?

Your teeth are an integral part of your body for many reasons. They help you eat, absorb nutrients, and protect your mouth from disease. But can your teeth define your personality?

A group from Carrington College attempted to answer this question. Here’s what they found:

1. Your 2 front teeth can indicate age. Younger people have rectangular front teeth with rounded corners. Older people have teeth that are more square and also display square corners on their front teeth.

2. Feminine lateral incisors, the teeth to the left and right of your front teeth, are more round, while males are longer. 

3. Pointier eye teeth/canines, the teeth to the left and right of the lateral incisors, indicate a more aggressive or powerful personality. Flattened or rounded canines highlight a more passive personality, while people with tiny incisors may show a tendency to be a “pushover.”

4. People that grind their teeth are shown to be more competitive, frustrated, anxious, and stressed.

5. Adult americans spend 164 million work hours per year at the dentist. 

6. Children spend 51 million school hours per year receiving dental care.
