The Not So Hidden Benefits of a Great Smile

Our smile, or a lack thereof, says a lot. Do you like to show your smile? Or, do you tend to hide it? If you find that you’re not smiling while others around you are, then a visit to Escott Orthodontics may be the solution. Serving the Orthodontic needs of Orlando and Lake County Florida, Dr. Escott can help put that great smile back on your face – which can help in so many ways. Let’s look at a few reasons why you should visit us for your free orthodontic consultation.

We constantly use our teeth and mouths. From the time we wake up to the time we sleep, we are constantly taking part in activities like eating, talking on our cellphones, or having conversations with coworkers, family, or friends. If your teeth are misaligned and functioning incorrectly, they can cause damage to the soft tissues of your mouth or your other teeth. Getting your bite aligned can reduce the risk of damage and injury to your mouth and other teeth.

Self-esteem is a complicated thing that is dependent upon so many factors, and our appearance tends to be one of those factors. Dr. Escott can help get your smile back on track so you can share it with the world again. Being happy about your smile can give you a much-needed self-esteem boost, which can put you on the road to even higher achievements. This can really be important for teens, especially, as they are readying themselves for many life changes that lie ahead. A teen with higher self-esteem is a teen destined for success.

Our smile projects self-assurance, confidence, and comfort. It’s so much easier to feel better about being around people whose body language tells us they want to be around us, isn’t it? Often people who fold their arms while we speak with them can appear to be anti-social. The lack of a genuine smile can convey a similar message to others. Our faces are usually the first impression others get when speaking with us, so it is important to have a smile that conveys the proper message. If our body language is more welcoming, we will be friendlier and welcoming to coworkers and new acquaintances. That fresh smile gives us confidence in social circumstances, even those that may be a bit stressful. We all want to show that we are calm under pressure, right? A confident grin does just that.

So, when you’re ready to take that first step toward greater health and confidence, contact Escott Orthodontics in Orlando and Lake County, Florida. With years of experience helping others find their smile, we are here to help you find YOUR smile.
