Tartar Isn’t a Welcome Mouth guest

It used to be that people knew more about the tartar sauce they were covering their fish sticks with than the kind that was developing on their teeth. Fortunately two things have happened. People eat less fish sticks, which have a relationship akin to chicken “nuggets” and anything resembling poultry. And dental information is now […]


Lasers to the Rescue

Although lasers have invaded just about all facets of our lives — everything from your rangefinder on the golf course to the scanner at the grocery store to your cat’s pointer toy — most people don’t think of them in the dentist’s office. But at Prosthodontics of New York, we pride ourselves on staying abreast […]


Snow White Teeth for Your Holiday Party

Snow and New York City don’t necessarily go well together. What is normally thought of as bright and white can be a grey, slushy, mess. At least you can have snow-white teeth thanks to our in-office and at-home teeth whitening options at Prosthodontics of New York. And if you come in for one of these […]

Pillowcases of Candy Are Scary. Sealants Aren’t

Since it’s Halloween and your kids are about to dress up like Spiderman and head out to cover all five boroughs with the singular goal of filling a pillowcase with candy, it could be a good time for a blog about preventing decay in their molars. Yes, you may have the strongest enamel this side […]

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 […]
