A smile can paint a thousand words.

When you first meet someone your smile is the very first thing they will take in about you, the very first thing they will notice, so it’s important to have a bright beaming smile to reflect your equally bright and beaming personality.

Sadly, for some of us, that’s not such an easy-to-do thing. Some people suffer from misaligned teeth through no fault of their own, and begin to feel self-conscious about smiling. Thankfully though, there is a solution.

If you find yourself getting all shy about your crooked teeth, then check out this list of five reasons to invest in Invisalign – an alternative sort of solution rather than going with traditional braces.

As our children grow up and become more independent, teaching them about dental hygiene is essential. Not only will it help them be more independent but it will also improve their confidence later in life.

A healthy smile influences more than most know. It affects our how we communicate, eat, drink and even our self-esteem. How are you supposed to be confident, when you have trouble expressing your emotions?

Dentists in Atlanta, Georgia  have found that “Older people report that they experienced low self-esteem much of their life because of their teeth. They felt they were born with this type of smile and there wasn’t much they could do.”

Teaching our kids to brush, floss, and see a dentist regularly is extremely important. A healthy smile inspires confidence and a willingness to smile more.

Eating disorders have harsh consequences on oral health. Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia, which are more prevalent in women, are the two most common.

Anorexia is associated with having an extreme fear of gaining weight. People with this mental disorder tend to exercise excessively and eat very little. Along with this, even if they are in shape, people with anorexia see themselves as fat.

Bulimics, on the other hand, eat compulsively and then rid themselves of the food by vomiting. Although how much they try to hide their disease the signs are evident to dentists. Changes in the mouth are the first signs of eating disorders.

Oral cancer grows in the tissues of the mouth and throat. It belongs to a larger group of cancers called head and neck cancers. Most invade the squamous cells found in your mouth, tongue, and lips causing damage to surrounding tissue.

Often oral cancer is only  discovered when the malignant cells have metastasized to another location, most likely the lymph nodes of the neck. This makes it extremely important to educate yourself about how to prevent it.

Many patients experience nervousness and dental fear that averts them from receiving proper dental care and treatment. Sedation dentistry  is a modus operandi used by dentists to support patients who are suffering from dental fear, also known as odontophobia. It helps them in overcoming their phobia and anxiety of dentists, dentistry, and receiving dental care.

In sedation dentistry, the dentist administers sedative drugs in different forms, for example, pill, gas or nitrous oxide, and intravenous, so that the patient is stress-free and in a relaxed state while the doctor performs the treatment. With the effect of sedation, the process of dental treatment becomes an easy and comfortable practice both for the dentist and patient.
