Researchers from the University of Göttingen in Germany wanted to determine what kind of information was available on the Internet regarding orthodontic treatment by assessing the informational value, intention, source, and bias of videos related to orthodontics screened by the video-sharing Internet platform YouTube.
With regard to orthodontics, and especially since the majority of adolescents regularly use Internet social media for obtaining information, it is reasonable to suppose that those adolescents who are about to undergo orthodontic treatment make use of this popular website to obtain preliminary information, the study authors noted.
They scanned YouTube in July 2010 for orthodontics-related videos using the search terms “orthodontist,” “orthodontic,” “orthodontics,” and “braces.” The YouTube scan produced 5,140 results.
And now for something completely disgusting…..
Botox use for teens…….
