Digital Dentistry and Regrowing Teeth with Stem Cells

One of the exciting innovations that is on the horizon in dentistry is digital dentistry—taking impressions of a patient’s dentition with a scanner and being able to make a tooth from that scan right away. It really is a wonderful time to be a dentist and I love presenting patients with new, excellent options as […]

Learning is a Life-Long Goal and Pleasure

Giving back to my community is important to me and that is one way in which I am committed to continuing education—I volunteer my time at NYU as a clinical instructor. Having volunteer instructors spend their time with me when I was a dental student added a great deal to my education experience and skill […]

Replacing a Missing Tooth is Accomplished in Phases

Patients are understandably a bit nervous about the prospect of having teeth extracted, and there are several things I do as a dentist to help them remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. All of us here in the practice have the patient’s comfort as our highest priority, so we offer words of comfort in addition […]

Dental X-Rays: Everything is Digital

Patients are sometimes apprehensive about dental x-rays. These days we no longer use the film x-rays which produced levels of radiation that were concerning for health reasons years ago. We currently use digital x-rays that produce about one-tenth the amount of radiation as the old film x-rays, which were our only option for many years. […]

Infection Control in Dentistry Today

In dentistry, protocols to control infection are mandated, and often because they are so routinely practiced the patient may not be aware that those protocols are taking place around them. Technically the mouth is the dirtiest place in the human body. Wearing gloves helps the doctor and staff by protecting our hands from a variety […]

Root Canal Treatments Should No Longer Be Painful

In dentistry there are some myths I would like to dispel. One of the most common myths is that everything that a dentist does will hurt. Fortunately, I am delighted to say, the anesthetics we use daily in dentistry combined with very thoughtful and well-practiced injection techniques result in the patient feeling little or nothing […]


Dental Care Financing Options, Variety and Convenience

Many patients ask questions about the cost of dental treatment and we offer dental care financing options to help make dentistry more affordable. We accept all major credit cards and we also offer Care Credit, which gives the patient six months to a year interest-free financing, and we also use Lending Club that offers financing […]


Chipped Tooth

Chipped or Cracked Teeth Can Be Treated in a Variety of Ways

Depending on the severity of a patient’s cracked or chipped tooth, different levels of treatment might be required. In other words, each cracked or chipped tooth is different and what appears to be one thing when the patient looks at it might appear to be something else when I look at it closely as a […]

Dr. Lezhansky’s Comprehensive Dental Examination for New Patients

Our new patient comprehensive dental exam takes about half an hour to complete. This type of appointment is for gathering and providing information, but not for performing treatments. We would not want to rush a patient through either their first discussion with me as their dentist or their first treatment provided by me. We take […]


Dr. Lezhansky Provides a Wide Range of Services

In this dental practice we provide many services from root canal procedures to LANAP laser gum therapy to implant placement. These services include a very wide spectrum of specialty areas and so we rarely need to refer our patients to other specialists for a particular service. Although we are considered a general dental practice, the […]
