The Secret Language of Smiles: What Your Dental Health Reveals About You

Posted .

Did you know that according to studies, most people make a first impression within the first seven seconds of meeting you? It’s true! With such a short window of time to cultivate that impression, it would make sense that there are few items in your aesthetic toolbox more valuable than your smile. This might be obvious, but if we’re imagining that a smile is worth a thousand words, how many of us are considering what those words are really saying?

What your smile projects

More than just a way to broadcast friendliness or demonstrate a sense of humor, a smile can be a representation of how you take care of yourself, what you prioritize and your intention. It’s one thing to envision what an ideal smile might look like to convey the impression you would like to make, but it’s another to attain it. Some extremely common roadblocks may be getting in the way of giving you the smile you feel genuinely represents you. Did you know, for example, that according to a study by the American Association of Orthodontists that an astonishing 78% of people associate crooked teeth with being unsuccessful? If this statistic gets you down, trust that you are not alone. The same study found that one third of all American adults are unhappy with their smiles
