A wise man (or woman) once said that a day without a smile is a day wasted. That saying reigns true all over the world. No one wants to open their mouth and scare potential friends or lovers away, so dental health should be right up there on your list of priorities. We are often committed to attending yearly health checkups: pap smears, breast checkups, cancer screenings and the likes. Sadly, however, we rarely ever just walk into a dentist’s office to have our dental health checked. We wait until we can no longer stand the piercing pain burning our gums before we go running into the orthodontic dentist’s office.

Why should you allow yourself to suffer through the pain when there are so many professional dentists in Canberra? Your dental health is equally as, if not more, important as your overall body health. When you smile, you give people a hint into the kind of person that you are. It is unfortunate but we are a shallow society which judges people more by how they look than how they behave. That’s the sad truth. So when you smile and your mouth is in shambles, you are likely to be judged as a careless and unhealthy person.

With bad teeth you certainly can not sustain or even begin a modelling or acting career. So if it is your dream to become the next Nicole Kidman or Nicky Whelan, you need to take care of your teeth. There are so many things you can do to create a wonderful smile, as your dentist will tell you. However, most dentists retain tat the best teeth a person can ever have are their own teeth. So try and avoid having to get your teeth extracted. If something can be done to save them, no matter how uncomfortable, do it.

Now that I have given you a whole speech about how important your dental health is, it’s time for you to take charge and save the most visible part of your body. Your teeth are visible when you smile, speak, sneeze, cough, laugh and cry. So the next time you have an hour free, step into a dentist’s office to have your teeth checked. You could save yourself a couple of teeth as well as a lot of pain. It also going to be much cheaper for you to prevent damage to your teeth and in these economic times, anything that saves you money is worth a try!
