Smile Qoutes

Before You Put on a Frown, Make Absolutely Sure There Are No Smiles Available - Jim Beggs

5Beecroft-Aug2016 A smile comes with a positive connotation, and a frown comes with a negative one; however, despite that fact, people often turn toward the latter. As your kids start going to the orthodontist, you want to encourage them to keep smiling. Providing them with a reason to smile, even if they don't like their braces, can be easy.

Changing Moods

Let your kids know that the way that they represent themselves to the outside world will often have an effect on how they feel inside. You can perform a simple test. The next time your kids are frowning, ask them how they feel on the inside. Make them smile and ask again. Show them that when they are willing to put on a smile, they can change the way that they think about certain situations.

Displaying Pride in Health

Your children might argue with you about getting braces because they don't want to be bothered or they don't like the way that the units look. Talk to them about how important it is to maintain proper dental health; discuss the consequences of failing to do so. You can also remind them that they may want to smile more once they have their perfectly straight teeth. You can explain to them that they have the ability to take pride in their good health when so many people don't.

Helping Others

Your kids may not realize how much their moods affect other people. For example, ask your older children if they notice that their younger siblings get upset when they are frowning. Teach your kids that smiling at other people can help them to have a better day.

This world is filled with too many frowns, and you can help your kids combat that epidemic. Call the team at Beecroft Orthodontics to schedule an appointment for your little ones today.

If You See a Friend without a Smile,Give Him One of Yours

3Beecroft-Aug2016 As you raise your children, you’ll likely have many lessons that you want them to learn, and some of those lessons involve how to interact with other children. When you bring your kids to the orthodontist and encourage them to keep smiling, they can form stronger bonds with their classmates and other peers.

A Positive Effect

You know that if you give your smile, you often have the ability to calm your kids' fears. Once they have braces, they can do the same for other children. If your kids are at the point where they have started to visit the orthodontist, others in their class are likely around the same stage. Just as your kids were probably nervous about the visits, so are these other children. Encourage your kids to smile at them so they can show that their braces have a positive effect.

Friendship

Showing a caring smile also helps to create connections among young people. Some children are afraid in school because they miss their smaller classrooms or their old buildings. When many kids in a class are upset, rapport does not develop among them. Once your children have their braces, remind them that they can show the positive strides they are making in health to the world. By doing so, they can act as that one youngster who brings the class together.

Teaching your kids to share their smiles is important, especially in a world where so many people judge one another. During this process, you can also teach your kids how important it is to take care of their teeth and why they should smile over that accomplishment. In order to get your children started on this healthy and happy path, call Beecroft Orthodontics to schedule an appointment and review the possibilities as soon as possible.

Smile: It's Free Therapy - Douglas Horton

2Beecroft-Aug2016 A smile is a wonderful thing. Smiling lifts you up and everyone around you.

In fact, smiling is a therapy of the best kind: It’s free therapy.

The benefits of smiling have been validated by science too:

  • Smiling improves your mood: Moods might originate in the brain, but researchers have found that facial movements can force moods to align with them. Incredible, but true.
  • Smiling reduces stress: A 2012 study at the University of Kansas revealed even “fake” smiles after the completion of stressful tasks reduced heart rates and encouraged quicker recovery.
  • Smiling convinces others to trust you: Researchers found subjects with the sincerest and open smiles are considered the most trustworthy by observers. Just smile, and the world smiles back.
  • Smiles might increase the strength of your cells: As biochemist Sondra Barrett explains, your smile tells your whole body everything is OK. It tells your cells to get back to keeping you healthy rather than preparing for a sudden shock.
  • Smiling increases creativity: A study at the University of California in 2013 determined test subjects who smiled more took a more comprehensive approach to solving problems, maintaining an openness to alternative solutions. The effect has been connected to the improved function of dopamine in those who always smile.

But what if your smiles aren’t coming as naturally as they should? What if you think twice before beaming that broad grin at the sound of a joke or just in an expression of delight? Do you always smile in a healthy way, or do you feel inhibited and distracted?

A warm, open, engaging smile is what orthodontics is all about. The doctors at Beecroft Orthodontics can enable the smiling demeanor that can optimize your health and set you up for success.

Get back to enjoying the free therapy of smiling by scheduling an appointment today.
