At Rafael E. Cordero, DDS PA, we help patients achieve the dream smile they are searching for, while also helping to keep their teeth healthy. Far too often, people do not seek regular dental checkups at least twice a year and end up with an onslaught of oral health problems. can include periodontitis or a tooth infection. While most general dentists can prevent and treat a many issues, they may not have the surgical expertise of a periodontist.
We can treat the advanced stages of periodontitis and other oral health issues that regular treatments do not have an effect on. We can also alter the appearance of the smile to the patient’s desires and replace missing teeth with dental implants. If you are interested in learning more, schedule a consultation with us today.
