Smile for Your Health

2015 is in full swing, so how are you doing at keeping up with your resolutions?  Are you staying more organized?  Exercising more?  Taking better care of your teeth and obtaining the smile that you deserve??  Well, taking care of your smile may not be at the top of your list, but it is definitely at the top of ours.  We understand that your dental health is more than just brushing twice a day and flossing regularly.  Loving your smile is also an important part of your dental health.

When you love your smile you are more confident, more willing to speak in social settings and most importantly more willing to smile.  According to “Inspiyr” there are numerous benefits to smiling.  Some benefits that stand out are:

  • Smiling strengthens your immune system1554434_10204689071565226_6926826506698961038_n
  • Smiling even makes your immune system stronger by making your body produce white blood cells to help fight illnesses. One study found that hospitalized
    children who were visited by story-tellers and puppeteers who made them smile and laugh had higher white blood cell counts than those children who weren’t visited.
  • Smiling lowers stress and anxiety

It’s not easy to keep smiling in stressful situations, but studies report that doing exactly that has health benefits. When recovering from a stressful situation, study participants who were smiling had lower heart rates than those with a neutral facial expression.

Whether you are seeking a complete smile makeover or simple teeth whitening, we are committed to your comfort and to helping you achieve the smile that you deserve.
