Perhaps you’ve heard.

An extensive, July 2012 Centers for Disease Control survey concluded that over 47 percent of the U.S. adult population aged 30 years and older have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis – gum inflammation and disease around the tooth where bacteria multiply.


As we mention in our Preventive Care section on our Treatments page, researchers pinpoint gum disease as either a cause or contributing factor in heart attacks, cancer, stroke, clogged arteries, low birth weight babies, diabetes and more.


Dr. Maria Estrada and her team are dedicated to using family education, free tools, regular cleanings, state-of-the art technology and general and restorative dental care to reduce those numbers at Naples Plaza Dental Practice. Dr. Estrada is particularly alarmed that the study numbers further show that higher incidence of periodontal disease in:


  • Men – 56% (v. 38% for women)
  • African Americans – 58%
  • Mexican Americans – 67%
  • Adults with less than a high school education – 67%


These populations make up the majority of the patients here at Naples Plaza Dental Practice.


That’s why we’ve created a special place for family dentistry right here in Chula Vista, California. Our patients receive the highest quality dental care. Not only do we use the very latest in dental equipment, Dr. Estrada makes a point of attending the conferences and lectures that cover the latest in dental care research. She shares these findings with her staff of dental assistants, most of whom are certified dentists in Mexico themselves. In her 23 years of practice, Dr. Estrada has attended and even participated in hundreds of conferences and other learning opportunities.


The Dental Procedures You Need to Create the Smile You Were Born For Make the most of your smile with:


  • Preventive Care: Plaque builds up on the teeth every day. Even the best brushers need a dentist to remove it. Research has proven conclusively that those who take active steps to prevent gum disease and cavities also reduce their risk of heart disease, cancer, clogged arteries, stroke, premature and low birth weight babies, diabetes and more. Good long-term dental health habits help people avoid these debilitating events, complex procedures and hospital bills. At Naples Plaza Dental Practice, we share the latest and most effective preventive techniques to help you avoid fillings, crowns, scaling and surgeries.

  • General Treatment: Sharing decades of practice in several countries, Dr. Estrada and her team of specially trained dental assistants have restored the dental health and smiles of athletes, seniors, accident victims, children, smokers, the chronically ill and even those little ones making their very first trip to the dentist! We even create custom procedures and treatments for individual situations.

  • Prosthetic Denture Treatment: Painstakingly crafted, natural-looking prosthetic teeth let your natural good looks shine! Rest assured: your grandpa’s dentures are the thing of the past. Dental technology has advanced dramatically in the last decade. New materials and processes result in dentures that look much more natural and sit far more comfortably in the mouth.
