Help! I need dental advice.

While Dr. Burhenne is able to provide general information to readers about various dentistry-related topics, he can’t give direct medical advice for your situation. As much as we would like to help each reader individually, we aren’t legally able to provide specific advice without seeing your full medical history, all relevant x-rays and medical records, plus seeing you in person.

For general information and education about dental topics (not related to a specific dental issue you have), you can email Dr. B at [email protected].

If you need dental advice, you must go see your dentist. These articles will help you with your search:
