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.

We realize many patients have dental fears or anxieties that may prevent them from scheduling a routine cleaning and exam, we want to eliminate your fear by introducing you to NuCALM.

NuCALM is a new natural way to relax during treatment without the need for medications

Athletic guards/ sports guards

As an athlete himself, Dr. Mostafa Aboulkhair feels strongly about the importance of protecting your teeth and keeping your smile for life.  Although there are options to buy a mouth guard at a sporting goods store.

They are not made to fit your mouth and can fall out easily and not provide you with the best protection available.  We know that contact sports can be damaging and encourage our patients to have a custom fabricated athletic guard made by our office to provide you with personalized comfort and protection as you play.

Night guards or Occlusal guards

Teeth grinding also known as bruxism can be severely damaging to the teeth, if left untreated teeth can become worn down, break or cause inflamed or receding gums.  When the symptoms from grinding your teeth become more severe some patients will experience headaches, earaches, stiffness in the neck or tight shoulders, disturbed sleep habits and tight or aching jaw muscles leading to TMJ disorders.  We offer our patients a night guard to help combat the effects of teeth grinding, this device is made of a clear acrylic and designed by our lab to fit precisely for you.
