Your teeth say a lot about your health. When you visit Endicott Dental, we don’t just clean and whiten your teeth. We look for chronic gum inflammation, airway obstructions, tooth crowding, or other mouth abnormalities. We do this because we know that early detection is the key to preventing more severe oral problems later.
By taking a holistic approach to your mouth, we empower you to pursue a more healthful life. We know that good oral health is key to good overall health. We want to ensure that your mouth — and you — stay healthy for years to come!
Regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene habits can greatly reduce the risk of gum disease and other oral issues.
Detected early, most dental issues can be reduced or eliminated before they become more severe. That's why early detection is crucial.
Dr. Endicott and his team will teach you the best ways to maintain your oral health, both in our office and at home.
The more complicated the issue, the higher the cost to correct it. Catching oral problems early can keep your costs down in the long run.
Great oral hygiene and preventive care keep your smile healthy and beautiful, so you can show off those pearly whites with confidence!
The better your oral health, the fewer visits you may need to the dentist. We love seeing you, but we love seeing you with a healthy mouth more!
We recommend dental checkups twice a year for patients with good oral health, according to the American Dental Association’s recommendation. We also recommend that your child’s first dental visit as soon as they have their first tooth. The sooner dental checkups and cleanings commence, the better chances your child will form good oral hygiene habits that will last throughout their lifetime.
At Endicott Dental, we take a holistic approach to your dental care. We get to know you and treat you like one of the family because, to us, you are. You’ll get the same level of exceptional care we would give to our family members. When you’re here, you’re family.
It's natural to have tooth wear over time, but you can slow the process by brushing and flossing regularly, using a soft-bristled brush, seeing your dentist at least twice a year, and using a fluoride rinse or sealant to protect your enamel. You might also consider using a bite appliance if you grind your teeth in your sleep.
There are several ways to lower your risk of oral cancer. Make sure you are getting plenty of vitamins through eating fruits and vegetables. Avoid tobacco use. Protect your lips from the sun with a UV lip balm. Also, get an HPV vaccine, as about 70% of oral cancers in the U.S. are caused by HPV.

The biggest culprit is poor oral hygiene — not brushing and flossing correctly or consistently. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to brush for at least 2 minutes twice a day and floss before you brush.
