Preserving Your Smile for a Lifetime
Preventive measures can do wonders for your dental health. A visit with one of our oral health care team members and a few simple homecare practices can prevent long term bone loss and maintain a fresh, healthy smile.
At the office of Dr. Anthony Bordas our goal is to provide the best in preventive oral care. Procedures that remove plaque and tarter and by scheduling regular preventive appointments at our office can optimize the health of your gums, teeth, and prevent bone and tooth loss.
