There are so many things that can make us smile. From seeing an old friend to watching a good movie to randomly remembering a great joke.  Well, we’re about to give you another reason to smile: it’s good for your health! That’s right, smiling has actual health benefits, so prepare to flash those pearly whites!

When we smile, it triggers a chemical reaction in our bodies, the release of endorphins. Endorphins are natural hormones that inhibit pain and produce feelings of euphoria. We get them after a good workout, and we also get them when we’re happy. What’s really cool is that our brains associate smiling with happiness so strongly that even a fake smile will trigger that endorphin release. So if you get injured, take advantage of this trick to reduce your pain levels!

Let Us Give You Reasons To Smile —

It can be difficult to smile with confidence without healthy teeth and gums. So make sure to maintain those good brushing and flossing habits. To keep that smile in good shape, visit your dentist twice a year for a good cleaning and give us a call to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn about your orthodontic options for a happier healthier smile!
