Healthy mouth, healthy mind?

Having a healthy smile benefits you in several ways.

From helping you chew and digest food to reducing the risk of you developing oral cancer and cardiovascular diseases, the physical health advantages of a healthy smile shouldn’t be underestimated.

And neither should the mental health benefits.

Yes, you heard us right.

Having healthy teeth and gums can work wonders for your mental health, but how exactly are they related?

Why is mental health so important?

In recent years, the focus on the importance of our mental health has skyrocketed.

Mental health issues – such as anxiety and depression – are extremely common and can have a massive impact on our day-to-day lives, putting a strain on our relationships and affecting our performance at work or in school.

There are many ways we can take care of our mental well-being, from exercising and healthy eating to spending more time outside and making sure to get enough sleep.

And it turns out that taking care of our teeth and gums can have a huge positive impact on our mental health too.

What’s the link between oral health and mental well-being?

Poor oral health has been linked to a variety of different mental health issues, including anxiety, depression and low self-esteem, because of the stigma around having visibly poor dental health.

Having healthy teeth and gums, on the other hand, has been linked to increased confidence and overall happiness – which probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise.

And, of course, when we feel good about our appearance, we’re bound to feel happy and more confident, and, as one of the first things that people notice about us, our smiles are certainly a big part of it.

 How can I improve my smile?

If you’re suffering from poor self-esteem at the hands of poor oral health, there are several ways you can improve your smile for a bit of a confidence boost.

From teeth whitening and straightening to dental implants in London and veneers, there are plenty of ways we can help you achieve your dream smile here at Bow Lane.

Teeth whitening

If your teeth have started to yellow as a result of ageing or poor genetics, or are stained as a result of years of smoking or coffee drinking, teeth whitening could help restore their natural pearly white colour.

We offer both in-practice and at-home solutions and can help you achieve a natural-looking, brighter smile.

Teeth Straightening

Got crooked or gappy teeth? No problem.

Our range of revolutionary orthodontic treatments, from traditional metal and ceramic braces to more modern Invisalign treatments, will win you a pin-straight, picture-perfect smile to be proud of.

Cosmetic treatments

If teeth whitening isn’t an option, or you’ve got chipped or missing teeth, tooth replacement/repair could be the only option. And it’s a great one.

From dental crowns and fillings to dentures or implants, we can help restore your smile so discreetly that your friends, family and colleagues won’t be able to tell that you’ve had any work done!

Ready to take back control of your oral health?

There’s no denying the impact that the state of our teeth and gums can have on our mental health, but with our treatments, you can get it back on the right track.

Regardless of whether they’re insecure about their smile or not, many people put off going to the dentist because of fear.

Not to worry though, we know exactly how to deal with dental anxiety in London, and you can be confident that you’re in the best hands with our team.

Whether you just need a simple professional teeth cleaning or are interested in any of the treatment options listed above, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experts.
