Abstract

Introduction: The present study is an attempt to correlate the effects of esthetics with psychology in a professional college.

Aim: To know the perceptions of smile esthetics and irregularly placed teeth among professional college students.

Materials and methods: In the cross-sectional survey, a total of 462 professional dental students were surveyed using a self-administered structured questionnaire (the age of the participants was between 18 and 25).

Results: A total of 462 subjects (professional dental students) participated. The mean age of subjects was between 18 and 25 years. There is a highly significant difference in the perception  of the malocclusion with the mean difference of 1.445 between males and females.

Conclusion: Most male students recognized that well-aligned teeth are important for facial appearance compared with females. Male students perceived severe deviation as most unattractive, suggesting that orthodontic treatment awareness among professional college students needs to be enhanced, monitored, and evaluated.

Keywords: Dental esthetics, Malocclusion, Oral health, Orthodontic awareness, Professional college.
