Your Toronto Invisalign Specialist Says. "Smile More! "

Your Markham - Stouffville Orthodontist suggests you smile more :). Our Toronto Invisalign and Unionville braces patients have a lot to be happy about, including patient contests, rewards programs, frozen yogurt, and Invisalign, to go along with their beautiful smiles!

According to a March 2010 study at Michigan’s Wayne State University, those with big smiles may actually live than those who don’t. Positive emotions have been linked to both physical and mental health for some time. Researchers looked at photos of 230 ball-players who began their careers in baseball prior to 1950 and studied their smile intensity, ranging from big smile, no smile or partial smile. They then compared this data to the longevity of the players, taking into account other factors, such as body mass index, career length and even college attendance.

The results? Researchers found that players who weren't smiling in the photos lived an average of 72.9 years, players with partial smiles lived to be 75, and those with the biggest smiles lived to be 79.9 years old. The take home message is pretty clear!

If you're self-conscious about your smile, contact MCO Orthodontics to discover how we can help. We look forward to helping you achieve your best smile possible!
