Want to attract the opposite sex? It's in the Smile.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- We have all heard this warning: "You never get a second chance to make a good first impression." Do we first notice the hair, the eyes, or the clothing? According to the American Academy of Periodontology, 50% of people say that a smile is the first feature we notice about someone. Smiling is also linked to making us feel better physically and mentally. Needless to say, we should all be interested in making sure we are taking care of our smiles.

To maintain a healthy smile, we can take the following steps:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily
  • Floss your teeth daily
  • Use a dental guard if you grind your teeth while sleeping
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and oral exams
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco

We have our teeth straightened by an orthodontist. Perhaps dental veneers are used to improve the appearance or our teeth. Numerous teeth whitening solutions can be found in every oral care aisle, or your local dental office. Lip balm, lip gloss, or lip stick is commonly used to maintain healthy lips for our smile. Some go to the extreme of lip augmentation to improve the smile. With all the money and time we invest into our smile, a few hours of teeth grinding every night can eliminate our investment.

Bruxism is the grinding or clenching of the teeth, and it is one of the most common sleep disorders. Regular dental checkups are important to detect damage. Your dentist can diagnose and treat your bruxism, and one or more treatments may be recommended. Most common treatments involve the reduction of stress combined with a custom-made dental guard or an over-the-counter dental guard. Custom guards range from $200 to $500; while over-the counter guards are more affordable and usually priced between $20-$60.

The SleepRight dental guard by Splintek is the only "No-Boil" dental guard available, which combines innovative self-adjust technology for an individual custom fit. "You can walk into a drug store, pick up a SleepRight and immediately protect your teeth. Consumers are demanding convenience, quality, and value; Splintek is providing that with the SleepRight." said Thomas Brown, CEO of the company.
