Studies show that more than 90% of adults have had a cavity in their lifetime. Tooth decay affects the pediatric population as well, and is considered the most common chronic childhood illness, according to the CDC. Fortunately, with state-of-the-art preventive care, our team at the office of Dr. Frederick P. Waldschmidt can help reduce your family’s risk for tooth decay. As a skilled and reliable Bradley dentist, we focus on the prevention of dental disease as well as the early detection and care to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may be harmful to your oral health.
Dental plaque harbors millions of pernicious bacteria, which metabolize dietary sugars to produce acids. If left to accumulate, plaque and its acidic by-products can erode tooth enamel and cause cavities to form. The best way to protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque involves brushing, flossing, limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages, and visiting our Bradley dentist for biannual teeth cleanings and exams. A professional teeth cleaning allows us to remove any residual plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. Our dentist will then perform a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed, to diagnose cavities and other oral health problems in their earliest stages, when they’re typically easiest to treat. For our pediatric patients, preventive care may also include the application of fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, we provide the most precise and gentle care to treat tooth decay, and utilize the latest generation of tooth colored restorative materials, which blend seamlessly with your smile, for natural looking results.
At the office of Dr. Frederick P. Waldschmidt we utilize the most advanced technology and approaches to prevent, detect and treat cavities. Every checkup with our Bradley dentist is an informative, stress-free experience for you and your loved ones. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.

Preventive visits are an important part of a complete and effective regimen of oral care. Our Bradley dentist encourages patients to come in twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning and thorough comprehensive checkup exam. A teeth cleaning allows our team to remove any plaque or tartar that you may have missed while brushing, and provides an opportunity to instruct you on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home. We strive to make each visit informative and engaging, especially for our youngest patients, helping them to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral hygiene habits. Although tooth decay can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. To keep your child’s smile cavity-free, we offer dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, which are proven to protect children’s teeth against decay. As part of your checkup visit, our dentist utilizes advanced technology and methods to diagnose potentially harmful oral health conditions from the outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat. Early detection allows us to deliver the most straightforward and effective course of care. Throughout your checkup, our team of professionals will keep you informed and relaxed, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
