Make 2010 A Year Of Smiling

When you have a smile that you're proud of life just seems a little bit sweeter. Studies show that people who are happy with their smile are more confident and have better connections with people around them. But there are not just psychological benefits to having a great smile, many potential dental concerns can be addressed when teeth are in correct alignment.

Imagine how hard it is for someone to keep their teeth impeccably clean when crowding and misalignment of teeth exists in their mouth. When teeth are straight, routine tasks like brushing and flossing become so much easier and therefore decrease the risk for developing decay. Gum tissue health also suffers due to crooked teeth; resulting in recession, inflammation and general discomfort.

Check back with us next week when we'll chat more about the many advantages, both physical and emotional, of having a great smile.
