In 2017, my previous dentist replaced 2 crowns on the left side of my mouth. While adjusting the fit, he ground them down so much that my back teeth no longer touched. Instead of offering to fix it by replacing the crowns, he made me think it was normal and my bite would align and be fine. After 4 years, two dentists after that dentist, 2 root canals, immense pain on the right side of my mouth from the constant chewing only on that side, gum recession from the trauma due to my bite being misaligned, and my teeth shifting so that I now need straightening, I found Dr. Farahani while researching dental technology to fix the bite. She was one of the few dentists in the Austin area that had the technology to assess it (other than just bite on the carbon paper and grind side to side).
I went to her in January 2021. Yesterday, she replaced the 2 crowns that started all of this pain & expense, and my teeth finally touch!! I waited until today to write this review to see how my bite would feel after wearing my night guard overnight and after the anesthetic wore off.
I feel normal for the first time in nearly 5 years. I didn't wake to pain. I was able to chew on the left side of my mouth. I started crying when I told my husband that I finally found relief. What's more is that from the time I met her, she really listened to me and agreed with my plan of action to replace the crowns even though I have zero dental training, and she was gentle throughout. I usually have to have multiple numbing injections (I'm a red head and wear off anesthetic quickly), but she numbed me completely and without pain doing it. I can't say enough about her or her staff.
