Research topics cover a plethora of subjects, but the research on smiles is inspiring. With so many things going haywire in the world today, the benefits of smiling seem more important than ever. Unfortunately, there are individuals who quench their smiles because of dental problems. They may not realize how much they are missing out on.
The Benefits of Smiling
Among the many advantages of going through life with a smile are benefits to your health, mood and general well-being. Plus, your smile can be contagious and boost the moods of the people around you. Studies show that smiling impacts longevity. People who smile a lot tend to have better health and live longer.
Part of that could be because smiling also relieves stress. Even a fake smile can help alleviate your stress. One of the factors in the development of all types of ailments is stress. Smiling can act as a natural antidepressant. It also helps boost the immune system, probably due to the release of certain neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine.
Researchers have also found connections with smiling and other health conditions. It may help to lower blood pressure, especially when laughter is involved. In times of stress, smiling helps lower the heart rate. The endorphins released when you smile act as natural painkillers and reduce physical pain.
Are You Missing Out?
When your teeth leave something to be desired, smiling could add to stress rather than relieve it. Cavities, crooked teeth, missing teeth, especially, or yellow, dingy teeth are reasons people may not smile. The good news is that no matter what your dental blemishes may be, there is a solution. It may be as simple as a professional whitening session to brighten your teeth shades whiter than they are now.
