I posted recently about the power of smiling and baring your teeth and how it automatically sets your body up to make you feel confident. 😁
Since then I've had several conversations with people who couldn't figure out why they weren't feeling confident recently. 😕
They all recently had dental braces fitted and were feeling self-conscious about them.
And this stopped them from smiling. 😐
Of course, when the braces are removed these people will be probably be grinning from ear to ear and feeling much more confident. But in the meantime, it's important to try and keep smiling, as hard as it may be.
If you know someone wearing braces but lacking some confidence, pass this on. It could really make a difference.
And if you know a dentist, perhaps they'd like to know about this too.
