10 Airtight Reasons To Protect Your Beautiful Smile

We have so much to be grateful for each and every day, and there's no better way to celebrate than with an enormous smile!

Smiling is one of the best (and easiest) ways to express gratitude and joy, and healthy teeth equal a happier you! That's why it's so important that we protect our teeth — after all, we only get one set. Physicians Mutual Insurance Company is here to help you do just that.

1. Smiles are contagious!

The fastest way to spread joy? Flashing those pearly whites! When you smile, you inspire the people around you to smile, too.

2. Smiling relieves stress.

When you grin, your brain releases "feel-good" endorphins that soothe stress and relieve tension throughout your entire body.

3. Smiling burns calories!

According to a Vanderbilt University Medical Center study, smiling and laughing for just 10 to 15 minutes burns between 10 and 40 calories per day. Get in your daily smile workout!

8. Your teeth help you eat!

Teeth aren't just for looks, after all. They help us chew our food, so imagine how difficult it would be to enjoy a simple meal without them! And as we get older, we need more work – or rework – done to keep them healthy.

9. Healthy mouths go hand in hand with healthy bodies.

Did you know some dental issues can affect your overall health? For example, people with gum disease are two to three times more likely to experience a heart attack or stroke. That’s all the more reason to visit your dentist regularly with coverage from Physicians Mutual Insurance Company.
