We begin oral health care with thorough but routine dental cleanings and oral examinations on a regular basis, ranging from 2, 3 and 4 times per year, Depending on each person’s individual needs, This helps to ensure you have healthy teeth and gums allowing us the opportunity to catch any early signs of dental disease i.e.tooth decay or periodontal or ” gum disease”.

 

Our highly trained dental hygienist works closely with Dr. Aboulkhair to provide each patient with a personalized treatment plan, along with a soft touch allowing you a pain-free experience.

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Fairfax, Dr. Aboulkhair recommends our patients have a minimum of two oral evaluations per year along with a cleaning to remove plaque and calculus or “tartar” to achieve healthy teeth and gums.

Our initial comprehensive examination is how we determine and build a strong relationship with each patient. This exam includes an oral cancer screening, checking the lymph nodes for any abnormalities, evaluating the tmj or tempromandibular joint for clicking and popping and assessing your muscles in your face or jaw that are used for chewing or mastication. We also evaluate the teeth noting any signs of decay or misalignment along with an assessment of the gum tissue or gingiva for the presence of disease or bone loss.

Our team will use 3D imaging to help us evaluate your sinus cavities, the vertebrae in your neck and screen the tempromandibular joint or TMJ. The 3D images also help Dr. Aboulkhair identify any possible airway or breathing problems that may lead to sleep apnea or snoring.
