10 Benefits of Having a Great Smile

When it comes to making a good impression, the first thing that comes to mind is a great smile. It’s hard to feel cranky when you are with someone who is looking at you with a genuine and happy smile. Researchers have long known that smiling has quite a few benefits worth considering.  Here are 10 benefits of smiling that will make you rethink how often you smile each day:

  1. Improved Mood

Smiling has been scientifically proven to contribute to a release of mood-enhancing chemicals, such as endorphins, in your brain which can increase feelings of contentedness and happiness.

  1. Pain and Stress Relief

All those feel-good chemicals in your brain can help to relieve pain and stress. Similar to the level of pain relief that medications can give, smiling affects the dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin neurotransmitters which can lower your heart rate, blood pressure and lessen pain.

  1. Stronger Immune System

The chemical reactions that make you feel relaxed and happy will also contribute to a healthier and stronger immune system!

  1. Longer and Healthier Life

Those who smile more tend to live longer. In fact, one study found that, on average, people live seven years longer compared to those who don’t smile. This is most likely caused by the many other health benefits that smiling helps such as lowering blood pressure, heart rate, stress and anxiety. Smiling may even strengthen the immune system and overall health.

  1. Makes You More Attractive

People smile as an affable gesture. Most of us attribute smiling to other likeable characteristics such as friendliness, happiness, and approachability.  No matter where you are in the world or what type of personality or physical attributes you are attracted to, smiling is almost always rated as more attractive than not smiling.

  1. Better First Impressions

When you realize that people are judging you more positively when you are smiling, it becomes obvious that people who smile tend to leave a better first impression when they meet others! Somebody’s first impression of you is what will stick in their mind long after that initial first meeting. It only makes sense that those who smile more will be project that certain confidence and warmth that is a desirable attribute to have at work and at play.

  1. Stronger Relationships

People usually respond positively to genuine and friendly people. By leaving a positive first impression and being perceived as more attractive and friendly, you will continue to attract people who want to be around you and your infectious smile.

  1. Get Paid More

Smiling can make you more productive and get your recognized, especially at work. It’s no surprise that employees that smile more frequently tend to get more promotions, raises, and better tips!

  1. Boost Your Self-Confidence

Smiling makes you feel good and makes others want to be around you. The way you view yourself and your smile will surely enhance your confidence!

  1. Smiling is Contagious

How to Get a Healthier Smile in Miami

How to Get a Healthier Smile in Miami: How healthy is your smile? If your teeth are bothering you, you’re not alone. People of all ages in South Florida have dental problems at one time or another. Whether your smile issues are cosmetic – like stained, yellowed teeth, or functional – like a misaligned bite or crooked teeth, you can do something about it. Healthy teeth make a healthy smile. When your teeth are at their best, your smile will look great.

If you want to improve your dental health in Miami, there are a few things you can do. First, make sure that your teeth are clean and free of plaque buildup by following a good oral care routine. Maintain good dental hygiene by following the American Dental Association’s guidelines of:

  • Brushing two times a day for two minutes at a time
  • Using a fluoride toothpaste and dental products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance
  • Flossing or cleaning between teeth once a day
  • Seeing your dentist regularly for checkups, cleanings, and treatment

Following these guidelines can help you prevent staining, keep cavities from forming, and stop gum disease from developing in your mouth.

But keeping your teeth clean and gums healthy isn’t the only thing you can do for a healthy smile in Miami. If your teeth are misaligned, they can be causing you problems. Crooked or crowded teeth are not only less attractive than straight teeth, but they can also lead to tooth damage and even tooth loss. Overlapping teeth can be hard to keep entirely clean, and crowded teeth put pressure on surrounding teeth, which potentially damages them. Straightening your teeth with orthodontic treatment in Miami is one way to make sure your smile is healthy.

How to Get a Healthier Smile in Miami

Insignia Advanced Smile Design

The ADA states that getting proper orthodontic treatment, such as braces, “can help improve your smile and make your teeth straighter” as well as contributing to greater dental health and improving your health overall. When braces are used to correct common bite and jaw issues, problems with chewing, headaches and facial pain, TMJ issues and more may be resolved. Customized braces are available to South Florida patients through Insignia Advanced Smile Design treatment at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.

Insignia treatment uses advanced dental software to develop a customized orthodontic treatment for each patient of Dr. Yazji.

Oral Care Plus Customized Braces Equals A Healthy Smile

Oral Care Plus Customized Braces: Everyone wants a great smile. And if you asked most people, they’d tell you that straight, white teeth are what you need for a beautiful smile. If you asked dentists, though, they would add that the function and overall health of your teeth are also very important for a great smile. Some people are born with naturally straight teeth, and some people go their whole lives without a single dental cavity. Most of us, however, need a little help when it comes to getting our best smile. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to get a great straight smile and keep your teeth healthy.

First, let’s take a look at some of the steps you can take to get and maintain healthy, cavity-free teeth:

  • Brush your teeth two times a day. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily, each day, to reduce the risk of dental cavities, receding gums, and gum infections. Brushing your teeth to reduce the risk of these oral health issues is important because untreated tooth decay and gum disease can lead to tooth loss. By keeping your teeth clean and healthy, you may be able to avoid the need for dentures, implants, and bridges and keep your real teeth instead.
  • Rinse when you can’t brush. You’re not always at home after meals, and you probably don’t always have a toothbrush and toothpaste with you. But you can still keep your teeth clean and prevent trapped food and bacteria buildup by rinsing your mouth with water. The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that children rinse after lunch when at school, and then brush once they get home.
  • Change out your toothbrush regularly. Old, worn toothbrush bristles aren’t as effective as new ones. The AAO recommends replacing your toothbrush or your electric toothbrush’s head at the first sign of wear. Even if your toothbrush isn’t worn out, the AAO says you should replace your brush at least once every three months.

Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation for a lifetime of great smiles. But crooked, crowded teeth or gaps between teeth may be keeping you from the perfect smile you want. Straight teeth actually help you achieve better dental health by reducing the pressure that crowded teeth exert on surrounding teeth, and by correcting jaw and bite issues. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, South Florida patients can fix common orthodontic problems and get their best smiles.

Insignia Advanced Smile Design provides patients at the offices of Dr. Yazji with braces that are custom-designed for their teeth and their orthodontic needs. Customized Insignia braces from Dr. Yazji can help you get the straight teeth you need for your best smile in Miami. Oral Care Plus Customized Braces…

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we can help you get a straight, healthy smile. To make an Insignia Advanced Smile Design consultation, or to see if one of our other services is right for you, contact us today.
