More and more adults are seeking out orthodontic braces and cosmetic treatment in Bolton. Could this be a direct result of the recent olympics and new found desire to get fit and push their bodies into shape? If you didn’t already know, smiling aids fitness! Smiling whilst weight training has been proved to help you lift higher weights more effectively, and smiles are definitely a great asset if you’re a runner; casual or professional.
Hiroaki Tanaka is a Sports and Health Science professor at Japan’s Fukuoka university and he has recently reported the findings of his important research; for optimal results you should smile while you jog. Running at a slower ‘smiling pace’ is more effective in lowering blood pressure and improving overall fitness.
In a test group of 75 year olds, (because it’s never too late to take up running) the majority experienced lower blood pressure when running and smiling. Smiling is good for fitness and health; consequently if you look healthier, you’ll also be more attractive. That’s a great reason to smile more…but what if you’re too embarrassed about your smile to display it in public?

Your adult brace options in Bolton
- Invisalign adult braces- The leading Invisalign brand provide you with a series of clear plastic alignment trays, which fit over your teeth, are custom-made for you and will drag your teeth into a more desirable position. Not only are these braces very discreet and hard to see, but they also removable, so if you have an upcoming social occasion at which you’d really rather not be wearing braces, that’s entirely possible. Invisalign can fix most alignment problems.
- Inman Aligners adult braces – Like the Invisalign brand, Inman Aligners are removable. However they offer a shorter treatment time because they focus simply on the front social 6 teeth.
- Simply Smile and 6 Month Smiles adult braces – These braces also focus on your front 6 teeth and have a short treatment time. They consist of ultra clear brackets and tooth coloured wires, which are discreet, gentle, precise and very reliable.
- Secret Smile – These lingual braces are often favoured by celebrities because they fit onto the back of your teeth, rather than the front, making them even harder to detect.
