Did you ever notice how you feel better when you smile? Whether you’re sad, angry, or frustrated, grinning can make you instantly feel physically and emotionally better. Even more, your smiles make other people feel good, too. Try it with your loved ones and coworkers, and even the family pet. Smiling is a free and easy way to share joy with others, and it makes each day and each interaction more pleasant. Remember “Life is too short not to smile. Smile as much as you can.” ― Steve Imig
Learning to smile may take practice
Some people are self-conscious about their teeth, so they hardly smile or hide their teeth when they do. Fortunately, anyone’s smile can be improved with the help of a skilled orthodontist. Beyond receiving dental training, an orthodontist is able to evaluate a patient’s mouth and teeth to see what can be done to address existing problems. For example, if someone is missing permanent teeth, remaining nearby teeth can sometimes be moved to close the gap, and it is impossible for the casual observer to see that any teeth are missing with the help of Invisalign, a hard-to-see type of braces.
Invisalign, ceramic, or metal wires, when fitted appropriately to a patient’s teeth, can shift them to their designated positions. Crooked teeth are pulled upright or adjusted to face proper direction. Teeth still embedded in the gum or soft palate are pulled down to their natural place or extracted. Within a short time, your mouth can look completely different. Overbites, under-bites, and cross-bites can be adjusted, along with other dental issues. When treatment is complete, your mouth may be almost unrecognizable, in a good way.
