Since regular dental checkups are essential for keeping your and your family’s smiles in excellent condition, Dr. Friedrich always makes sure that during the comprehensive exams, he will assess the health of your teeth and gums. With the help of our modern intraoral camera, we will identify potential issues and show what we see in your mouth.
In addition, we also provide a thorough cleaning, an oral cancer screening, and a periodontal evaluation. With the help of this complete assessment, we will uncover any issues with your dental health before they become bigger and more expensive problems. Once everything is done and you fully understand our findings, we will sit down, discuss, and create a customized treatment plan for your condition.
Trust that we will help you and your family start your journey to beautiful and healthy smiles.
Here at Caldwell Dentistry Co., we are committed and dedicated to making our hygiene appointments a unique and pleasant experience for your whole family. We ensure that any plaque or tartar that cannot be removed by a regular brushing and flossing routine will be carefully removed with our gentle and caring touch. Through these professional cleanings, we will prevent cavities and keep your smile shining.
With your family’s best interests at heart, we will use your regular visits to provide you with excellent advice to improve your dental health. Follow our team’s guidance, and we guarantee that you’ll be able to take your hygiene routine to the next level. Remember, a clean smile is a healthy smile, and, in turn, a healthy smile creates an overall healthy body.
Your gums are the foundation of a healthy smile and can have a real impact on your overall wellness. So, don’t hesitate to contact us if you notice common symptoms such as:
- Extreme tooth sensitivity
- Bleeding or inflamed gums
- Receding gums
These are common signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
Caldwell Dentistry Co. will help you maintain or restore your gum’s health through periodontal therapy. This treatment consists of regular hygiene and cleaning appointments.
In the early stages, our team will help you establish an effective hygiene routine at home. Then, if needed, we will provide you with a series of professional cleanings to help you get rid of all the plaque and improve your gum health. But if your symptoms persist, we’ll offer you a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to remove any issues below the gum line.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Caldwell Dentistry Co. cares for all our patients as if they were family. This outlook motivates us to always do our best and provide you with comprehensive and compassionate care at every turn. One way of doing this is through screening for early signs of oral cancer.
By doing these exams, we can early diagnose and start treatment that will be less aggressive and, most importantly, has been shown to improve and increase survival rates. Our advanced oral cancer screenings consist of a visual and physical exam of your mouth, including the oral cavity and connected tissues.
Upon finding any cause for concern, we will work alongside you and your primary physician to make a further and proper diagnosis. Please rest assured that every patient is precious to us, so we will be by your side to guide and help you at each step should oral cancer impact your life.
Remember that early detection is essential, so please schedule your screening today!

Brushing and flossing your teeth every day is essential to maintaining a healthy smile. We find that there are some tougher places in our younger patients' teeth where food and debris can be trapped because they are hard to reach. To help them with this, your children’s dentist in Caldwell, ID, offers a simple and friendly solution which is dental sealants.
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings painted onto the teeth. These coatings will fill in pits and fissures, making the tooth surface smooth. It is a preventative measure, as it is effective in stopping food or debris from becoming stuck, which can lead to decay and eventually cavities.
Sealants are ideal for both children and adults. To make sure that your smile stays in excellent shape, our doctors will check how sealants are performing during each dental visit.
Once a tooth becomes severely damaged or infected, a root canal might be your best option to save it. Many people experience severe toothaches due to the cavity reaching the nerve inside their tooth (pulp) and causing an infection. Dr. Friedrich will then gently remove the infected pulp and all the bacteria using root canal therapy to save your tooth and restore its function.
After that, he’ll fill the space with a composite resin, restoring your tooth’s strength and structure. Trust that with his experience and expertise, we will get rid of the infection and restore your tooth’s function. Through compassionate and gentle care, he’ll make this procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
Protecting your teeth while playing sports or sleeping is important. And here at Caldwell Dentistry Co., we are proud to offer two types of custom-made mouthguards to help you in your unique situation.
First, we offer our night guards. These appliances are designed to protect your teeth from grinding or clenching while you sleep. This common problem can cause jaw and bite issues, but don’t worry because our night guards can hold your jaw into place and prevent these issues.
Second, we offer our sports guards. Each guard is custom-made to fit your mouth and protect your teeth while not impairing your performance. The sports guard protects your teeth from trauma and injuries associated with several sports.
Both styles of mouthguards are created to meet your individual needs and produce a comfortable fit. Our dentist will work closely with you to design the ideal mouthguard for you!
Have you ever experienced anxiety or been scared while visiting the dentist? You are not alone in experiencing and feeling these emotions. Don’t worry, because we are here to help. At Caldwell Dentistry Co., we offer sedation dentistry to help our patients relax and feel comfortable during their scheduled appointment. Say “goodbye” to all those fears and experience dentistry in a new way!
Our dentist here at Caldwell Dentistry Co. provides three sedation options with access to a surgery center and a local anesthesiologist when needed. These options include:
- Inhaled Sedation: This is also known as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and this sedation is inhaled through a nasal hood. You will remain awake but relaxed. After the procedure, the effects of this sedation will wear off very quickly.
- Oral Sedation: With this type of sedation, you’ll be given some tablets that will make you feel sleepy but still aware of your surroundings.
- Intravenous (IV): This is our strongest type of sedation. It doesn’t fully put you to sleep, but it does make you less aware of what is going on around you during the procedure. Only a licensed dentist can administer this type of sedation.
With the help of sedation dentistry, we will proceed with your treatment plan, which will be tailor-made to your needs and goals. In the end, you’ll gain a beautiful, functional smile you’ll be proud to show off.
