TAP® Sleep Apnea Appliance
Posted on: April 8th, 2014 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD No Comments

There seems to be a growing number of patients that are unhappy hooked up to their CPAP devices for sleep apnea.  The concept of being tethered to a machine by a hose and having to wear a mask seems, by its very nature, to cause one to lose sleep.  Many patients feel that the machine [...]

Does the color of your dental crown or bridge not match?
Posted on: February 2nd, 2014 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD No Comments

Many of our patients are overwhelmed that we can be so efficient when it comes to custom coloring or modifying new crowns or bridges. Before any restoration is placed in a patient’s mouth, it is carefully tried in to make sure it is perfect in both color and shape. We make sure every  and bridge [...]

Should you get a second opinion before making a big dental care decision?
Posted on: January 29th, 2014 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD 1 Comment

Every day in our office we have patients that were referred to us for a second (or third) opinion on dental treatment. When I was in Boston, I taught dentistry at Tufts Dental School. Among the multitude of teaching assignments I was honored to be selected for, most gratifying was my responsibility to make sure [...]

   The “Wolf of Wall Street” is up for several Academy awards including Jonah Hill for supporting actor.  In Friday’s Wall Street Journal, in a whimsical article including the categories of Best Hair and Best Food, they gave Jonah the Award for Best Teeth.  As they wrote, aside from his great performance, his “glistening white [...]

What causes tooth sensitivity?
Posted on: January 16th, 2014 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD No Comments

A few times a week we have patients that call us as they have sensitivity in their teeth. The sensitivity can be exacerbated from biting down or from just having a bowl of soup.

Just the other day two patients commented on how efficiently our office ran and how their needs were so easily met under our care.  They were a husband and wife and they both came in at the same time to get their teeth cleaned.  We have two hygienists hard at work every day, allowing the husband and wife to [...]

Discussing necessary dental treatment is easy with digital x-rays
Posted on: October 10th, 2013 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD 1 Comment

I am always amazed at how fast and comfortably the dental assistants in my office can take digital films of our patients’ teeth. We used to call them dental x-rays but that term now seems old fashioned. The exposure to harmful radiation is minimal and patients that used to be bothered by taking a series [...]

How important are Digital x-rays in a dental office?
Posted on: September 3rd, 2013 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD 1 Comment

   So many patients ask us how often x-rays should be taken of their teeth.  Our dental office tends to be very conservative, and we recommend taking check-up x-rays once a year and a full series once every five years.  Our x-ray units are digital and state-of-the-art, and our computers process the images, magnify and enhance them instantaneously.

Yesterday, we had a new patient that was referred to our office as his implant-retained denture had fractured. The dentist that fabricated the denture had done an excellent job, but the denture had become thin and was severely worn down. The denture teeth had to be replaced and needed a total repair, yet still would [...]

Imagine, you fall and break a tooth…A dental bridge is an esthetic solution
Posted on: June 10th, 2013 by Lissauer Dental: Jeffrey B. Lissauer, DMD No Comments

   When we arrive in the office in the morning, we are always amazed that we often have at least one or two new patients on an emergency basis that breaks a a tooth.  I always say that as we get older, if we fall, we just don’t get up so fast.  Our bones get more [...]
