For over 25 years, Dr. Mannas has helped Lakeway and Lake Travis area families achieve great and affordable oral health, while boosting their confidence with beautiful smiles.
A beautiful smile can not only boost your confidence, it tells the world that you take good care of yourself. What most people don't know however, is that your oral health can be directly related to your overall health.
Normally, good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, can keep the bacteria in your mouth under control. However, harmful bacteria can sometimes grow out of control and cause oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, certain medications that reduce saliva flow, disrupt the normal balance of bacteria in your mouth or breach the mouth's normal protective barriers may make it easier for bacteria to enter your bloodstream.
According to the Mayo Clinic there are many diseases and conditions that may be related to poor oral health such as Cariovascular disease, premature and low birth weight, Diabetes, Osteoporosis and even Alzheimer's disease. So while maintaining a healthy diet along with daily brushing and flossing is important, it's a good idea to schedule and keep regular dental check-ups.
A Beautiful Smile Not Only Makes You Feel Good, It's Important To Your Overall Health
