Exercise and Your Smile – Learn the Connection

They both give us joy and energy.  Exercising and smiling are both a source of happiness. Both is enjoyable to most of us, so much so that we believe it could potentially reduce the risk for a number of diseases including stress, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis even premature birth. Let’s face it, when we smile we are hoping for someone to smile in return and it is a language without words, a communication that needs no translation. Smiling releases endorphins which give a happy signal that surges in our bodies and minds convincing our inner selves that we are much happier and satisfied. So let’s exercise and smile! We all know exercise is good for our body and can improve our skin tone and elasticity. Being confident with our body gives us the reason to give a perfect smile and happily expose our teeth. We all need to smile and exercise often and spread our Joy.   Astrid Arostegui R.D.A.      Office...

Other people won’t be able to tell that a porcelain dental bridge is not a natural part of your mouth. What’s more, the force created when you bite will not be concentrated in one area. When are dental bridges needed? Porcelain dental bridges are recommended when there is one or more teeth missing that affect your smile and appearance. A bridge can also correct your bite, your speech, the shape of your face, and even prevent gum disease and tooth decay as a result of food accumulated in the gap. Why do we need to replace missing teeth? If you live with missing teeth, you have to replace them for many reasons: To improve your appearance. To reduce the strain on the teeth at either side of the missing tooth. To prevent the neighbouring teeth from leaning into the resulting gap and altering the bite. To prevent gum disease and tooth decay due to accumulation of food in the gap. Having said all this, remember that your oral health is always connected to your overall health. Neglecting to correct even minor gaps in your teeth will have an effect on how you smile and interact with other people. So consult now with a cosmetic dentist to get a complete and confident...
