Dental Anxiety Fairfax, VA

If you have a fear of the dentist, you are not alone.

Our dental care team at East Market Dental understands the anxiety that can accompany visiting the dentist. We make every effort to help our patients feel relaxed, welcomed, and a part of our dental care family. We have built our dental practice on the foundation of mutual doctor-patients trust. We provide a safe, non-judgment, no pressure environment where patients are encouraged to engage in their oral health care. We take the time to treat one patient at a time.

 Visiting The Dentist

Visiting the dentist twice a year is essential for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Patients are encouraged to make routine dental health exams at our Fairfax, VA dentist office once every six months for a thorough oral screening and dental cleaning.

Routine checkups allow for early diagnosis of developing dental concerns. Treating dental concerns as they develop can prevent further deterioration of your oral health. Patients with dental anxiety often avoid these routine dental checkups allowing their oral health to spiral.

Whether you have been away from the dentist, or if you are looking for a new dentist in the Fairfax, VA area, our dental care team can help you improve your smile.

Dental Technology

Our Fairfax and Centreville, VA area dentist office is equipped with state of the art dental technology that makes dental care less invasive, more effective, and less intimidating.

Dr. Sareen uses laser dentistry to treat a range of dental health concerns without the need for loud drills. Laser dentistry is minimal to noninvasive and actually promotes healing for shorter downtimes and more comfortable dental procedures.

We also have 3D digital scanning and x-rays for more precise diagnostics. 3D imaging gives Dr. Sareen a more thorough picture of your overall oral health and condition and alignment of your teeth and bite. 3D scanning in noninvasive and pain-free and allows for more conservative treatment for lasting results.

Certified Sedation Dentist Fairfax, VA

Dr. Sareen is a certified IV sedation dentist helping patients in the Centreville and Fairfax area combat their dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry allows patients to remain totally relaxed during treatment so that they are able to maintain and restore their oral health.

  • Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is inhaled through a hood that is placed over the patient’s nose. Patients remain awake and alert but are filled with a sense of euphoria while inhaling the gas.
  • Oral conscious sedation is a prescription medication prescribed by Dr. Sareen. Dr. Sareen will instruct the patient on the timing of taking the pill. The pill is taken before treatment so that you are relaxed and comfortable by the time of your appointment.
  • IV sedation is ideal for patients who experience extreme dental anxiety. IV Conscious sedation is designed to put the patient into a light sleep like state so that they are unable to feel their treatment.
