A new study by the Impress Orthodontic Clinic reveals that people should smile for a minimum of seven minutes a day.
Dr Khalid Kasem says, “The main benefit of smiling is that it reduces stress. Our mouths are more damaged by stress than we might realise, as the added tension it puts on your muscles can lead to involuntary teeth clenching or grinding, leaving you susceptible to jaw issues and a whole host of other problems. Smiling increases endorphins and lowers cortisol levels. So smiling when you feel stressed can leave you feeling considerably better.''
