It's All In The Stats: The Truth About The Importance Of Your Smile
Some people believe that communication begins with your words, but it starts much earlier than that. According to psychologist Albert Mehrabian’s communication model, only 7% of what we communicate is actually verbal, yet 55% is body language which encompasses your smile. Statistically speaking, your smile delivers a powerful message when you choose to send it. It says so much about yourself that you don’t realise, even the length and width of your smile and most certainly your teeth and whether they are cared for or not.
Every single time you smile you activate the messaging system in your brain that sends a neural text for some serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins to throw your body a party. This all happens within moments of you deciding to smile.
According to a university in Minnesota experiment, there are 19 different types of smiles but only 6 are due to happiness. Let Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you to make each of those 6 smiles outstanding! A study by a UC-San Francisco researcher found that these different types of smiles can be placed in one of two categories: polite or sincere smiles and can use up to 53 muscles in your face. If that isn’t enough, read these interesting facts?
- Your smile can strengthen your immune system
- Babies are said to be able to smile moments after they are born
- Smiles can be contagious
- Generally, women smile more than men (Except men who have visited Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in South Florida!)
Your smile sends out the most basic human communication that says, “I’m worth getting to know.” It also says, “I’m open to new experiences, outgoing and fun to be around.” Believe it or not, your smile is also thought to regulate blood pressure and improve your moods. If the strength and importance of your smile is important enough to have countless experiments and studies done, then it is important enough to invest in.
