Are you using an \usepackage[…]{inputenc}? Which one? Is TeXShop using the same encoding? Are you also using an \usepackage[…]{fontenc}? Which one?

A minimal example could be fine… to explain why the emdash vanishes. I think since Snow Leopard the System Preferences allow to set up substitutions from --- to — or … to … etc. I think this can be switched off in TeXShop:

	Edit -> Substitutions -> Show Substitutions
