Smile, it’s good for you!

Having a straight, healthy smile has never been easier.

Smiling is one of the easiest ways to boost your health, and is the gateway to your happiness and confidence. Americans spend trillions of dollars every year trying to boost health, focusing on supplements, the newest fitness routines, diets and health care, but don’t consider their smile in the mix. However, not everyone enjoys all the healthful benefits of a straight and vibrant smile if they’re embarrassed to smile.

Eighty percent of Americans suffer from some level of malocclusion or imperfect position of the teeth when the jaws are closed. This crowding of the teeth not only leaves us embarrassed to smile, but often results in gum disease, decay, bone loss, and ultimately tooth loss. Once affected, these dental ailments will all prove to be both uncomfortable and costly. They can even have devastating ramifications for your overall health and wellbeing, contributing to a greater risk of systemic infection, heart disease, diabetes, low birth weight, and more. If this sounds like you or someone you know, don’t worry because there is help on the dental horizon.

Beyond the immediate health benefits of straighter teeth, there are many emotional and social benefits to flashing a bright, beautiful smile. Did you know smiling not only reduces stress but also lowers your heart rate? Or that smiling increases productivity, boosts your immune system, increases attention and makes you look younger? It is statistically proven that those who smile more feel better about their lives and circumstances. That’s because smiling releases chemicals in the brain that trigger a “Happiness Response” that not only builds a sense of confidence, optimism and satisfaction, but also helps to boost the immune system to perform better and protect us from harm. Additionally, people who smile freely are typically perceived as more approachable, more positive, and more trustworthy.

Don’t hide your inner health, beauty and confidence behind pursed lips. Invisalign® is the newest option for people who strive for a straighter smile, and the benefits are easy to see. Unlike the unsightly, uncomfortable bands and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign® technology employs clear, comfortable, and removable aligners to gently and efficiently straighten your teeth, often within a fraction of the time and cost of traditional treatment. The removable aligners effectively treat a wide variety of cases including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite, all while allowing you the convenience of eating whatever foods you enjoy. Regardless of what stage you’re at in life, Invisalign® offers you more comfort, convenience and confidence while straightening your teeth, and has minimal interference on how you live. There are so many healthful benefits and empowering properties of straight, beautiful teeth, so contact your dentist today and start attaining the smile you deserve.
