Dr. Weber has been serving Little Rock area residents for over 30 years. Our dental practice provides top-notch oral healthcare to patients of all ages with a focus on the prevention of oral disease. We believe that regular checkups and cleanings along with preventive care help lay the foundation for good oral health. Not only does regular oral health care prevent oral disease, it helps patients establish healthy dental habits for a lifetime.

Checkups and Cleanings

Beyond practicing meticulous oral hygiene, dental checkups and cleanings are a person’s best defense against common oral conditions like dental caries and periodontal disease. People of all ages should visit our practice twice a year for checkups and cleanings.

A checkup involves a physical examination as well as the use of diagnostics to evaluate the health of the entire oral cavity - even surfaces we cannot see. Checkups are actually quite thorough. Dr. Weber will look for signs of tooth wear, decay, and infected gums. Diagnostics are used to examine the health of the roots of teeth and facial bones. Another important aspect of a dental checkup is the fact that our team will perform oral cancer screenings. Oral cancer can form anywhere in the mouth but particularly on soft tissues like the linings of cheeks and the tongue.

Like oral examinations, professional cleanings are invaluable to patients. Cleanings are necessary because even if we practice proper oral hygiene, harmful substances will still accumulate along the gum line and in between teeth. Tartar, a primary contributor to periodontal disease, is the calcified form of plaque and it can only be removed with professional dental instruments. A checkup is a great time to evaluate your oral hygiene habits, too. Our hygienists routinely provide oral hygiene education so that our guests can make the most out of their brushing and flossing regimens.

Preventive Treatments

Preventing disease saves time and money. As dental disease progresses, it becomes more invasive and costly to treat. Common preventive measures our team can take are fluoride treatments and the applications of dental sealants. Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel by replenishing lost minerals while dental sealants provide an undetectable but effective barrier to cavity-causing oral bacteria. Both of these treatments are non-invasive.

Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies aren’t always avoidable and when accidents or unanticipated oral health problems strike, Dr. Weber and our team are here to help. We provide same-day and next-day appointments for dental emergencies like severe toothaches, broken and knocked out teeth, and loose restorations.

Snoring Appliances

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment for snoring. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Weber to discuss your treatment options for snoring.

General Dentistry FAQs

To put it simply, you should visit the dentist regularly to protect and maintain your oral health. Twice annual visits to our practice can help prevent common oral health conditions as well as increase one’s likelihood of having issues detected as early as possible.

A dental checkup includes a thorough examination of hard and soft oral structures as well as the glands in the neck and occlusal alignment. X-rays are taken to evaluate the health of the roots of teeth and jawbones. During checkups, our dentist will perform an oral cancer screening - especially for patients who have increased risks for developing this type of cancer. Early detection of almost all oral health conditions and problems gives patients the opportunity to choose less invasive and costly treatment methods. Most importantly, early detection helps preserve precious oral tissue from destruction due to disease.

Brushing and flossing is an essential part of protecting your oral health from the development of periodontal disease and tooth decay. If oral hygiene isn’t performed properly, on a twice-daily basis, people greatly increase their risks for developing overgrowth of harmful bacteria, plaque and tartar accumulation, and other unpleasant issues such as bad breath.

Since oral hygiene is your first line of disease prevention, you should brush your teeth thoroughly about two to three times a day. Brushings should last for roughly two minutes each time and attention should be paid to all teeth, the gums, and the tongue. You should also floss once a day, every single day, to disrupt colonies of bacteria and remove debris from the gum line and between teeth. Thorough brushing and flossing will greatly diminish the accumulation of tartar, which is calcified plaque.

Dental emergencies are unpleasant but our team is here for you. Whether you have developed a painful toothache or have suffered from a traumatic dental injury such as a knocked out tooth, our practice can make arrangements to see you the same day as your emergency, when necessary. If your dental emergency can be handled in a day or two, we will make arrangements for a quick appointment while giving you tips to handle your situation in the meantime.

A professional dental cleaning is one of the most important elements of establishing good oral health along with maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. You should have two cleanings a year or every six months.

Cleanings are gentle and not invasive. Using specialized dental instruments, our dental hygienists will gently remove plaque and tartar accumulation on teeth, between teeth, and along the gums. After debris and substances like tartar are removed, teeth are polished to perfection so that your teeth will feel impeccably clean.
