Ashamed of Your Smile? | World Health Day

We want to use World Health Day to remind you that a smile is the universal standard of welcome in our current reality as human beings. An essential component of health orbits around the quality of our smiles and how much of it we can share to our immediate environment. Unfortunately, not everyone comes with a picture-perfect smile, and not everyone’s teeth can be like the models in infomercials or movie stars in Hollywood. The good news is, with our current existing technology and oral expertise, virtually anything can be corrected and fixed, so ultimately, you can indeed flash that picture-perfect smile.

A research study carried out in 2004 deduced that many people experience consistent embarrassment due to poor dental status and fear negative social evaluation from the abysmal state of their teeth. This negatively reduces confidence, slashes self-esteem and in the most extreme cases can lead to depression and anxiety spasm. However, there’s good news on the horizon in the form of Oral care professionals. Dentists and Orthodontists aren’t your mere doctors. They have spent years of their lives perfecting their expertise in treating various forms of dental anomalies. Dentists help in putting the sparkle to your smile by making sure your teeth are free from cavities and tartar while orthodontists straighten your smile by making sure your teeth are aligned in the right direction.

Overall, orthodontists are dentists and truly your best resource when it comes to maintaining and improving the quality of your smile. At iSmile Orthodontics, our doctors are not only your orthodontist, but we also serve as mini therapists in cases of dental anxiety and dental phobia stemming from oral discrimination. You can expect zero judgment in their presence and can be rest assured that the health of your smile would be all the better in their hands!
