Contact Dr. Burhenne
To make it easier for me to help, please be sure to…
- Keep it brief.
- Understand that I can’t make diagnoses via the Internet.
Example of a bad question:
“Attached are my x-rays. I had an extraction on #22. Should I see my dentist?”
Examples of good questions:
“What’s your opinion on fluoride in baby formula? I’m a new parent of twins and wondering if I should use tap water or filtered water for their formula.”
“I recently received my first crown and I have extreme sensitivity to cold and hot foods/liquids. Is this normal? Will this always be the case or will it eventually go away?”
If you’re in pain right now, see your dentist. The nature of toothaches is that they’re almost always an indication that it’s too late to manage the problem yourself. Infections and cavities never get better or stay the same – they get worse. See your dentist and get treatment.
If you don’t have a dentist, check out my guide for finding an awesome and affordable dentist who will take care of your dental health for life. My philosophy is that prevention is the best medicine and seeing a dentist regularly will keep you out of pain and prevent expensive treatment.
If you don’t have dental health insurance, I’m currently working on videos and articles to help you. Follow me on Facebook or Twitter to be the first to know when this new material is posted to AsktheDentist.com.
