Fear Of The Dentist

Dental anxiety can prevent patients from seeking out dental care even if they know they have poor oral health. For many patients visiting the dentist is a very stressful experience. For some, the anxiety comes from past experiences at other dentist offices. Oakton Dental Center strives to change patients’ preconceptions of the dentist.

Our Oakton, VA dentist office tailors dental care to the unique needs of patients suffering from dental anxiety. We promote patient education and preventive dental care to maintain and restore our patient’s most natural smile. Dr. Ahrbai provides personally tailored cosmetic, general, and family dental care for patients of all ages in our welcoming and supportive Oakton, VA dentist office.

NuCalm Relaxation

For patients with severe dental anxiety, Dr. Ahrabi offers NuCalm. NuCalm is a revolutionary way to naturally help patients feel relaxed and calm, enhancing their dentist’s office experience. NuCalm naturally relaxes the patient’s body and mind in just a few minutes and can keep them feeling calm through their entire dental procedure.

NuCalm combines biochemistry, physics, and neurophysiology to allow patients to completely relax their natural “fight-or-flight” response to stressful situations. NuCalm allows patients to feel totally relaxed and stress-free during their treatment allowing the dental team to work safely, efficiently, and effectively.

Preventative Dental Care

Visiting the dentist twice a year is essential for maintaining a healthy, natural smile. Patients who visit the dentist at least twice a year are less likely to need more advanced restorative dental treatments and enjoy a cleaner, brighter smile. Regular preventive visits to the dentist also allow for early diagnosis of any developing oral health concerns to allow for more conservative, less invasive treatment. Regular scheduled dental exams and dental cleanings can deter the development of tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, and bone recession.

Unfortunately, patients with dental anxiety often skip their 6-month dental checkups. Avoiding the dentist can lead to complex oral health concerns that may require more extensive treatment- meaning more time in the dentist’s office chair. Your oral health is important to your overall well-being and quality of life. Protecting your teeth and gums can help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.

Dr. Ahrabi understands that past experiences, or have been absent from the dentist for many years, can make it feel overwhelming to schedule a dental exam. He encourages all patients in the Oakton and Fairfax area to contact our dentist’s office. We provide a no-pressure dentist office environment. We can help you begin to restore the health of your oral foundation so you may enjoy a more comfortable, healthier, and brighter smile.
