Smile with us

People with healthy teeth smile more easily, appear more cheerful and laugh more; those who laugh often have a more positive approach to life and generally get a more positive response in return.

Smiling is an expression of quality of life. At Adent, we do our best to make sure that whatever the reason for your visit you will always leave with a smile.

We want you to have the best possible experience at our clinics, which is why we have methods to help anxious or scared patients with their treatments:

  • The use of local anaesthetics or surface anaesthetic gels for adults and children
  • Treatment under conscious sedation using nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This reduces stress and anxiety in children and adults and provides a sense of relaxation.

There are many reasons to smile at Adent!

Did you know? There are 8 advantages to smiling more:

  1. Smiling increases life expectancy
    People who smile more tend to live longer and appear younger. Smiling naturally reduces the appearance of age by at least 3 years and may extend life expectancy by up to 7 years.
  2. Smiling strengthens the immune system
    Smiling helps the body to relax. Relaxation allows the immune system to respond more quickly and effectively to threats.
  3. Smiling reduces stress
    Smiling naturally relieves stress. The symptoms of stress are visible on the face but a smile can help you appear less tired.
  4. Smiling decreases arterial blood pressure
    Smiling helps to reduce blood pressure and slow the heart rate.
  5. Smiling increases productivity
    Smiling is good for efficiency at work: people who smile and stay in a good mood are generally more productive and work better. Smiling also aids concentration because it reduces the negative effect of stress.
  6. Smiling stimulates the brain
    The mental exercise of laughing helps to keep your brain engaged: according to the latest research humour is able to increase our mental flexibility and strengthen our mind against the challenges of life.
  7. Smiling strengthens social relations
    According to a study conducted in England, a genuine smile makes us more attractive and helps to strengthen social relationships.
  8. Smiling reduces pain
    Smiling and laughing help us to withstand pain – explaining the success of “clown-therapy” in hospitals around the world.
