Frowning Constantly Can Lead to Ugly Marionette Lines

If your face and neck feel tired at the end of the day, then maybe it is because you were frowning instead of smiling for the majority of the time. Scientists know that you use 43 muscles to frown but only 17 muscles to smile. When you are frowning a lot, your face muscles will begin to sag, creating what cosmetic surgeons refer to as marionette lines between the corners of your mouth and nose. It is better to smile more, but if you have gaps between your teeth, then smiling leads to embarrassment. However, children, teenagers and adults can visit an orthodontist to improve their smile.

Orthodontic Treatment Can Repair Your Teeth to Create an Attractive Smile

By undergoing orthodontic treatment with either braces or aligners, you can fix your teeth in six months to four years. Adults and teenagers are able to wear aligners for their mild malocclusions, and these plastic orthodontic devices are easy to wear and take care of on a daily basis. A computer software program will create multiple sets of aligners in slightly different configurations. After wearing one set of aligners for two weeks, you will switch to the next pair of aligners.

Use Your Face Muscles to Smile Instead of Frowning

Smile – Best Facts and Myths 2016

smile

Smile. Middle school is a sensitive time in a child’s life. They become independent while beginning to struggle with the issues of popularity, bullying, and their own bodies changing. By 13 years old, most kids have lost all of their baby teeth. While this is not a sensitive topic for them, how their adult teeth grow in may be.

Consequences of No Smiles

Kids who are embarrassed by their teeth do not smile often. While their circle of friends may not notice, other children and teachers at school may think that they are shy, conceited or maybe that they aren’t paying attention. Not smiling has physical effects as well. When people smile, their bodies release endorphins which help them feel happy and less stressed.

Help Your Child Smile

Parents talk to their children about what kinds of clothes and shoes they want to wear to help them feel more confident. It’s also especially important to talk to kids about how they feel about their teeth. Orthodontia is, of course, not just a cosmetic issue. But the cosmetic can definitely out-weigh the functional aspects of getting teeth corrected in a middle schooler’s mind.

Parents should ask their child how they feel about getting orthodontic treatment which could include braces, a retainer, etc. They may have avoided talking about it because they are apprehensive about wearing braces or because they thought seeing an orthodontist was too expensive.

No matter whether they express positive or negative feelings about their teeth, scheduling an initial orthodontic evaluation with an orthodontist is best for the child. Type and length of treatment, as well as cost and financing options, can be discussed at this first visit. It may help them to feel more at ease and be reassured that they can have a beautiful smile.

If you are interested in an orthodontist visit for your child or yourself, please consider contacting King Orthodontics, for the smile of your life.
