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 […]


Filling You Can’t See

Caries. Doesn’t that sound like a term for something that had been left for dead out in the desert in an old Clint Eastwood Western? Or maybe a term from Olympic volleyball. You may actually know that word by another term, cavity. Caries is the clinical dental term for decay in a tooth. Who knows […]


Porcelain Veneers in One Appointment

In this month’s first blog, we discussed when the antibiotic tetracycline was first introduced in the 1950s and ended up staining the teeth of many children over the next decade before the process causing the staining was fully understood. Those teeth have stains in the tooth layer beneath the outer enamel layer. In this layer, […]


Those Darn Grey Teeth — Tetracycline

When tetracycline was first introduced as a new antibiotic option in the early 1950s, it was greeted with lots of fanfare. It was great to have a new antibiotic option for doctors to use with patients, especially if a patient reacted to other antibiotics. Unfortunately, tetracycline almost immediately started to show of pattern of staining […]


You Don’t Have to Wait for a Crown

Crowns are a big deal right now. On Netflix. On PBS. Prince Harry and the rest. The thing about all of those people, from Queen Elizabeth to Prince Charles to King George, is that they had to wait to get the crown. It’s not like they just showed up one day and someone stuck a […]
