3D delts or healthy teeth?

25th February 2021 | Posted by: Vanessa Giraud

Are 3D delts and 6 pack abs on your fitness agenda?

Then you’ll be pleased gyms are set, fingers crossed, to open up again on April 12th.

This means you won’t be stuck at home doing those shoulder presses alone. You’ll be able to get back to the heavy duty equipment. And the albeit distant companionship of like-minded enthusiasts.

Keeping it in proportion

As dentists we promote both physical and mental fitness. After all, having healthy teeth is part of having a healthy body and mind too.

Social media trends and popular shows, however, shouldn’t leave us feeling inadequate. Nor should we fixate on chasing goals that are unrealistic. Probably someone with stupendously defined musculature has a job that allows for keeping up that look. When we’re hunched up over a keyboard from 9 till 5 there may not be enough hours in our day to attain ‘perfect’ 3D delts.

What matters is keeping healthy, exercising in a way that makes us feel good, and appreciating the amazing things we can do.

For good form, be sure to revisit your wellness goals often:

Did you know:
When we meet, the first thing we notice is either eyes or a smile? After all, in England we’re usually wrapped up against the weather.

Hidden traps on the way to 3D delts

Usually people who workout regularly also think about what they put into their bodies. They buy healthy food, plan and prep their meals, and monitor intake sensibly, but not obsessively. If you’re about to start a new exercise regime, then it’s a good idea to think about how you’ll fuel it too.

5 traps to avoid:

You can have it all!

It is possible to have healthy teeth and 3D delts!

In fact, you can start getting professional help right now! Unlike your gym, dentists are open.

Why not set yourself on the road to healthy teeth before you tackle a shoulder workout at the gym?

Why do my teeth matter more than my rear delts?

Well, where do we start?

When we first meet someone, we are influenced by how they look.

Research confirms that whether it’s men or women we’re meeting, we notice eyes and a smile first. Of course, getting to know someone’s personality always takes a bit longer. But first impressions definitely count.

Even these days when our faces are covered, we’re more likely to take off our mask before we take off our tops. So having healthy teeth and a bright smile makes a statement.

More importantly, however, we need our teeth to eat. A comfortable mouth for life really is more of a priority than gains in the gym.

All you need to do is make an appointment.

A new patient appointment is a thorough examination of your teeth, and also your gums, mouth and lips.  The dentist checks for any concerns and suggests a treatment plan, if needed, or schedules another check-up.

Regular visits to the dentists, combined with a diligent brushing and flossing routine at home, will keep your teeth in good shape. And it doesn’t take as long as you spend honing those 3D delts!
