Welcome to my new blog.  The purpose of this blog is to inform the public (especially the Oklahoma City metropolitan area public) about matters related to dentistry and oral health.

Many people have a lot of questions about dentistry.  Why did your dentist say you need a filling or a crown? Aren't silver fillings toxic? Why would anyone choose a silver filling over a white filling? Isn't fluoride poisonous, why do dentists recommend it? Do sealants really work? What exactly is a root canal, and why do I need one? I had a root canal, and now I feel better, but my dentist says I need a crown. Do I really need it? Does gum disease cause heart disease? My grandmother has dentures and she loves them, wouldn't it be a lot simpler, if I just had all my teeth pulled? Don't dental implants hurt? Why is dentistry much cheaper in less developed countries? What in the world is crown lengthening?

Here is your chance to get some free dental advice.  If you have a question about dentistry or oral health please ask it.  Simply post your question in the comments section.  I will answer as many questions as I can.
