Don’t Be Scared of the Electric Toothbrush

Dentists are always giving away stuff in the hope that their patients will take better care of their teeth. Toothbrushes, floss, toothpastes. Alas, most of that floss simply sits in the drawer, but one can hope. Maybe we’d be better off simply telling our valued patients to go out and buy an electric toothbrush. What? […]


Don’t Add Fluoride to the Latest Whacko Conspiracy Theory

If the internet’s good for one thing, it is to give a platform for various whackjobs to spout their conspiracy theories for all to see. The moon landing? Phony. The Earth? Flat. John Tavares leaving the Islanders to sign with the Maple Leafs? CIA operation is behind that. Although the whole brainwashing angle has mostly […]


How’s Your Home Hygiene?

Brushing and flossing our teeth — it’s something we’ve done for so long that we don’t even think about it. Unfortunately, most people fret more about the timing of their car’s oil changes than they do about the quality of the home hygiene they provide for their chompers. That’s a pity because a car’s just […]


The History of Dental Implants

Dental implants have become more and more popular as the preferred option to replace missing teeth. It’s easy to assume they’ve been around for a long time. The reality is that the modern dental implant really began to be used in the 1970s. Dental implant placement is a big part of what we do at Prosthodontics […]


Be Nice to Your Gums

Our gums don’t get much respect. Yeah, they look all pink and wimpy, but don’t be fooled — these protect your tooth roots, despite their cotton candy appearance. While they are tough, your gums still need you to take care of them. Prevention is the key to keeping them healthy. Really all you need to […]


These Aren’t Your Grandfather’s Dentures

If you have relatively healthy teeth, it’s easy to assume most other people have most or all of their teeth. But the Centers for Disease Control would argue with that. CDC statistics show that one-quarter of all Americans over the age of 65 have lost all of their teeth. That’s a lot of people. And […]


Certain Foods Make Your Teeth Happy

OK, so you took the movie Elf a little too seriously. You live in NYC. You watch for Santa to crash land in Central Park. And you eat lots and lots of sugars and bypass the veggies. While that could work for Buddy the Elf, your teeth aren’t so fond of your diet. Maybe we could […]


Do Whitening Toothpastes Really Work?

Since we’re here in the heart of the advertising world, located just around the corner from Madison Avenue, maybe we just feel that advertising is everywhere. But in some things, it would be nice to go back to the days when there were just a couple of options, rather than the shelf-space occupying plethora of […]


Why You Need to Replace a Missing Tooth

It’s comforting to think that only a handful of people are missing all of their teeth. And if you’re missing a tooth or two — at least it isn’t all of them. Truth be told, none other than the esteemed American Dental Association says that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. And, […]


Do You Torture Your Teeth?

New Yorkers pride themselves on being tough. Tough enough to deal with the ancient subway system. Tough enough to deal with masses of humanity on the sidewalks. Additionally, tough enough to live in the city. Our teeth are even tougher. But that toughness leads to problems — we take them for granted. We do all […]
