About: Dental health is more than just a pretty smile.
It is not news that there is a significant link between one’s oral health and overall health.
“I truly believe that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body,” says Dr. Manolis Thanasas, owner of Thanasas Family Dental Care in Troy.
That’s why Dr. Thanasas is so passionate about helping families achieve their healthiest – and whitest – smiles.
Poor oral health may occur concomitantly with a more serious underlying disease process or may predispose an individual to other health conditions
such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, preterm births and low-birth weight babies. In addition, oral health problems can cause more than just pain and suffering. They can lead to difficulty speaking, chewing and swallowing, affecting your ability to consume the nutrition your body needs to stay healthy, participate in daily activities and interact with others.
“A healthy mouth will lead to a healthy body,” says Dr. Thanasas, “therefore I believe preventative dental care is essential for parents and children alike.”
Thanasas Family Dental Care specializes in comprehensive and preventative dental care for patients ages 3 and up – offering general dentistry services in addition to Lumineers and Clear Correct Clear Align Therapy.
As a father of two children, Dr. Thanasas believes in providing a fun and comfortable atmosphere. “We suggest parents bring their children to the dental office at a young age so we can detect any dental problems early. It will also allow the child to become familiar with the dental environment and make the dental visit a less stressful experience.
