Harmony Dental Wellness
A Great Dentist

Technology

Dr. Farahani believes in providing her patients with an exceptional experience each time they visit our office, and she accomplishes this goal by utilizing the most advanced dental technology. Read on to learn more about the state-of-the-art equipment you will find at your Austin dentist.

3-D Cone Beam

Our 3-D Cone Beam x-ray allows us to view your teeth, mouth, and jaw joint in a three-dimensional film. This gives our dentist the ability to see problems with your jaw joint (TMJ) and plan for implant dentistry in a more thorough manner. The Cone Beam is one of the many tools we use to diagnose your whole dental health, which contributes to your overall well being.
 

Nitrous Oxide

If you're interested in light dental sedation with no lingering after-effects, nitrous oxide is a perfect solution. Also referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide produces a very calm, relaxed state and a sense of extreme well-being. You may feel drowsy, but you will remain conscious so you can respond to your dental team as necessary. Since nitrous oxide leaves your system very quickly, you will be able to drive yourself home from your dental appointment.

At Harmony Dental Wellness, we also offer other natural options for dental sedation that will help you feel at ease. Please be sure to discuss your concerns with Dr. Farahani.

Digital TMJ Diagnosis

When diagnosing the source of your TMJ soreness and pain is the first step in finding a solution that will work for you. To do this, many dentists use a bite strip to identify high and low spots in your bite that may be causing your pain. 

However, a bite strip only shows where—not when and how much—teeth are interacting. For this reason, Dr. Farahani has invested in computerized bite analysis called Tekscan or T-Scan.

Using T-Scan technology, Dr. Farahani measures occlusal force accurately and easily. T-Scan provides a multi-dimensional, highly detailed image with precision accuracy. The system uses disposable sensors that transfer the data to an animated digital image that maps the force and the timing of pressure as you bite down. Using this innovative technology, Dr. Farahani can pinpoint where and how severe the problem is so she can determine the appropriate treatment that will provide the relief you need.

Digital Impressions

If you've ever experienced the messy impressions taken of your teeth in the past, you will truly appreciate the convenience of digital impressions. They are fast, comfortable, and offer a more accurate story of your bite than we could get from traditional impressions. 

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool that our dentist uses to detect your treatment needs in their earliest stages. Digital x-rays emit about 80 percent less radiation than traditional films and leave a smaller footprint on our environment since there are no harsh chemicals needed for processing. They are also readily available for you and your dentist to discuss your treatment needs and make decisions in a timely manner.
 

Intraoral Camera

When you see dental conditions in front of you in full color, it is easy to understand why treatment is needed. This is the benefit that the intraoral camera gives us. The tiny camera delivers full-color pictures of your teeth and mouth directly to the screen in our treatment rooms. You will be empowered to make the right decisions about your oral health when you can see exactly what's going on inside your mouth.

Panoramic X-Rays

This x-ray gives us a full view of all your teeth, jawbone, and jaw joint in one picture. It is an excellent tool for helping us pinpoint jaw joint problems, or diagnose the health of wisdom teeth.

VELscope and OralID

VELscope and OralID are a non-invasive technique that helps our dentist detect oral cancer in its earliest stages, which give our patients the best chance of successful treatment and recovery. The device emits a blue light into your mouth that helps us see the abnormal tissue that is present with oral cancer. This treatment is typically combined with your cleaning and checkup appointment.
