Periodic Recall Appointments and Preventive Care

Prevention is key to overall good dental health. During recall appointments and dental check-ups we offer:

  • Comprehensive assessment for oral diseases and conditions
  • Evaluation of growth and development Individualized preventive dental health counseling (ie, information about proper care of the child’s teeth and gums, fluoride use)
  • Dietary counseling
  • Anticipatory guidance about growth and development issues (ie, teething, thumb or finger or pacifier habits, prevention of sports-related injuries)
  • Orthodontic assessment
  • Plan for acute dental trauma

Preventive care includes hands-on teaching for improved dental health, home care skills (ie, toothbrushing and flossing), professional cleaning, topical fluoride application, dental sealants, and space maintenance.

Pediatric Restorative Dental Treatment and Oral Surgery

We use resin-based composite, which is an esthetic restorative material, for filling cavities, sealing the pits and fissures of caries-susceptible teeth, and bonding fractured teeth. Resin-based composites allow the dentist to be conservative in tooth preparation while avoiding removal of healthy tooth structure.

Because of our concerns about the impact of mercury on the environment and to uphold CPDA’s philosophy to perform the most advanced techniques using state-of-the-art equipment, resin-based composite esthetic restorative material is the only material used for filling cavities and placing sealants.

Oral surgery includes extraction of erupted teeth due to dental infection, history of dental trauma, or for orthodontic reasons.

Orthodontic Services

CPDA provides a full range of interceptive and comprehensive orthodontic care. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to harmonize tooth alignment and facial aesthetics.

We are committed to helping our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. All children should receive their first orthodontic evaluation by age seven to allow for early identification of any potential problems.

We routinely evaluate orthodontic growth and development at every periodic recall appointment.

Emergency Care

In case of emergency, after business hours and when our office is closed, an answering service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that can put you in touch with one of our dentists for advice.
