Infectious Smiles
Posted on 02/21/2018

A smile can be very infectious. Just a simple smile from someone that you like can cause your lips to curl up into a grin of your very own. It can transmit the positive feelings and energy from one person to another with just the movement of a handful of muscles. Unfortunately, though, a smile isn’t the only thing about your mouth that can be infectious. Mouths also carry plenty of diseases that can be transmitted if you or others aren’t careful. As your providers of Thornhill and Mississauga orthodontics, such as Invisalign, we at Orthodontically Yours would like to tell you more about it.

Why a Straight and Healthy Smile Is Important

Viruses, gum disease, and even cavities can be unknowingly spread to infect loved ones. It may surprise you to hear that a mother simply kissing her baby and sharing utensils can cause a younger child to develop cavities. For adults, husbands and wives have even been shown to have similar kinds of bacterial colonies in their mouths, which is why it’s so important to have healthy teeth and gums. While great daily oral hygiene and visits to the dentist are important in maintaining good oral health, your Thornhill and Mississauga orthodontist can be vital as well when it comes to keeping your mouth healthy. With the usage of Invisalign, braces, and other orthodontic treatments, your tooth positions can be improved, which will make it easier to keep your teeth clean and lessen the bacteria that are in your mouth.
