The Importance Of Visiting A Dentist During Pregnancy

Hello, my name is Karla Madison and this is my blog about the importance of dental care during pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my second child, my gums would bleed when I brushed my teeth. I went to my dentist and he told me that I had pregnancy gingivitis. He also informed me that this is a common condition for pregnant women because their hormones are changing during pregnancy. I followed the instructions of my dentist and my gums stopped bleeding and were healthy again. I also started doing research about the importance of dental care during pregnancy. If you're pregnant, you should read this blog to learn why it's so important to keep up with dental care while pregnant. This blog will give you the information you need so that you can have healthy teeth and gums during your pregnancy.

The Talking Teeth: 3 Things Your Smile Silently Communicates To Others About You

by Rose Hale

Teeth are made of a material that is pretty much the same thing as bone. Teeth are used to chew your food, speak properly, and aso just as important, teeth are flashed when you give someone a smile or let out a laugh. Yet, so many people disregard the importance of this physical trait until something goes wrong and they can longer share their smile with confidence. The thing is, your smile says a lot about you without you even saying a word. Take a look at three things your teeth communicate about you to others:

If your teeth are in bad shape, people may assume you don't take care of yourself. 

There is something admirable about a guy or girl who takes good care of themselves physically. Unfortunately, if you have teeth that are not in the best shape, even if they are out of alignment or discolored, it is easy for others to assume that you do not take care of your body even if you really do. 

If you don't smile because you are ashamed of your teeth, people assume you are an unfriendly person. 

When you are self-conscious about your teeth, you will probably not smile anywhere near as much as you would like to, whether it is when you are with people you know or just passing a stranger in the street. Not smiling sends a message to people around you that you are not a very friendly person. If someone smiles at you and you don't offer a smile in return, some may even assume you are antisocial or rude. 

If your teeth are not properly aligned, people can assume completely false ideas. 

Even something as simple as the alignment of your teeth can lead people to improper assumptions. Society uses certain physical traits to judge character, even though these assumptions are mostly unfair in nature and relative to prior, unrelated correlations between physical and personality traits. For example, people with front teeth that protrude or are larger than usual may be assumed as not very intelligent simply because characters with "buck teeth" are often portrayed as being goofy and not very smart by the media.

Remember, your smile can speak volumes about you before you ever properly meet someone. If there is something about your smile that you don't like, make sure you speak to a dental office about changes you can make for the better.
