Understanding The Duchenne Smile

Dentist Gold Coast: Understanding The Duchenne Smile While smiling is among the most natural facial gestures even for a baby, it is actually quite difficult to slap on a genuine smile on command. If you are having your driver’s ID picture taken, for instance, or if you are just meeting someone for the first time, chances are you will try to flash a fake smile that is either awkward or downright frightening.

The Anatomy Of Smiling

The zygomatic major, the muscle located in between the corner of your mouth and top of your jaw, contracts every time you try to smile on cue.

Smiling on cue by contracting the zygomatic major is rather easy. We do it every time we flash a fake smile. It’s the smile that we use wherever we have our ID photos taken. It’s the smile the salesperson flashes whenever we inquire about these or that product. It’s the smile the waiter nervously every time he gets someone’s wrong order.

The Duchenne Smile

There is a little known research that reports how a warm and earnest smile is easily more visible than a frown. An honest to goodness smile is hard to do without meaning. Technically, an honest smile is referred to as the Duchenne Smile. The Duchenne Smile is named after a 19th century French philosopher who spent his life studying the muscles of the face.

The Effects Of Tobacco On Oral Health

Gold Coast Dentist The Effects Of Tobacco On Oral HealthRegular consumption of cigarettes and other tobacco products have always been notorious for causing severe medical conditions such as heart disease, emphysema, and lung cancer, among others. As the numbers alone have it, smoking kills 1 in every 5 people in the world today.

Smokers are four times more likely to have diminishing oral health status compared to people who have never smoked in their lives, reports the National Center for Health Statistics. NCHS Data Brief No.85 reports that people who are current smokers are more likely to develop a wide range of oral health problems than former or non-smokers. Apart from this, the report also states that smokers are less like to visit their local dentist regularly.

How Smoking Impacts Your Oral Health

Smoking cigarettes and other tobacco products holds a profoundly negative impact on both your dental and periodontal health. This shouldn’t be surprising at all considering that your mouth is essentially the initial point of contact between a lit cigarette and the rest of your body.

The tobacco content of a lit cigarette alone contains over 4,000 chemicals. A good number of these are poisonous chemicals and at least 50 are proven to be cancer-causing ingredients known as carcinogens.

Restorative Dentistry: Foods To Avoid When Wearing Dental Crowns

Restorative Dentistry Foods To Avoid When Wearing Dental CrownsRestorative Dentistry creates a dental crown that is specifically designed to restore and improve the normal appearance and function of a damaged tooth.

A dental crown is a durable, form-fitting, and long lasting ceramic sleeve that caps over a decayed, broken, and brittle tooth. Resembling a natural tooth, a dental crown is designed to fit the adjacent tooth while ensuring the correct bite.

Oftentimes, however, it takes your dentist a week or two to create and fit you with a permanent dental crown.

While waiting for your permanent dental crown, Restorative Dentistry will first prepare your tooth for the fitting of a temporary crown. Because a temporary crown is often significantly more fragile than a permanent one, it is imperative that you take extra precautions in caring for it.

In this case, caring for your dental crown largely consists of watching what and how you eat. For starters, you can avoid chewing on hard foods like candies and nuts. You can also cut down on your snacking. Read on as Restorative Dentistry tells you more about this –

Restorative Dentistry Tells You To Avoid Hot Foods And Drinks

Exposing your temporary crown to foods served in high temperatures will probably cause no severe damage. Still, it is still best for you to avoid these foods altogether. Hot foods — such as fresh from the oven pizza, fresh off the grill steak, and hot soup — often result in severe discomfort.
