Smiling is one of the most basic, biologically uniform feature of all humans. Simply, by using some facial muscles, you can make a positive impact on all aspects of your life – relationships, career and health. Smile like it matters, because it really does.
Charles Darwin’s theory suggests that the act of smiling itself makes you feel better, rather than smiling being merely a result of feeling good. A smile, real or not, can stimulate your brain reward mechanism in a way chocolate cannot match. It increases the level of mood-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and reduces overall blood pressure.
Undoubtedly, it is important to have confidence in your smile and often times people who have problems with their teeth, don’t smile as much. This is why it is crucial to consult with a specialist in orthodontics to get the support and guidance you need to you achieve your transformed, most beautiful smile.
It’s an act of kindness
Just like yawning, smiling is contagious because physiologically, it activates mirror neurons. As the name suggests, these neurons enables people to imitate other’s behavior. On a psychological level, it radiates positive vibrations that promotes reciprocation. This is why you’ll find yourself returning a smile. Doesn’t this make smiling, an act of kindness?
Aligned teeth and a healthy jaw not only makes it easier to chew but also creates beautiful smiles – a simple but powerful tool that we possess but often forget to use. Not only does it make you appear more likable and courteous, it also enhances your self-worth. People with great smiles are perceived more competent and trustable.
A simple smile can sometimes communicate more effectively than words. While most think that it is merely a facial expression, studies have shown that it can help you deal with adversity. It cultivates good in the midst of the bad and can trick your brain to feel happy.
The ageless value of a simple smile
Interestingly, children smile for up to 400 times a day. This makes it more so important for them to feel confident about their smile. There’s no doubt that good smile can help children break down barriers with peers at school making it easier for them to make friends.
Problems like crowding, overlapping, hindered jaw growth or stunted tooth development are common among children. If you think there is a problem with your child’s teeth or jaw, this might be your sign to book an orthodontic consultation. Children and young adults who have misaligned teeth can struggle with low self-esteem because peers at that age often point out such things and it tends to stick with young minds.
More often than not, adults who are under confident about their smiles, hide it without realizing it. If you are someone who tries to cover your laughter, only takes pictures with your mouth closed or can’t help but notice people with straight teeth, it’s time to seek orthodontic care.
