Preventive Care is an important step in achieving stable, long term oral and general health. Research indicates that inadequate oral health can increase your risk of stroke, heart attack, respiratory disease and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, good overall health may be enhanced by a healthy mouth.

At Progressive Periodontics we recommend the following brushing tips toward healthy teeth and gums:
- Brush your teeth at least twice each day.
- Brush with a soft round bristle toothbrush or an Oral B Braun electric brush.
To avoid periodontal disease and cavities, it is imperative to floss at least once each day. The way in which you floss around your teeth is also important. Incorrect flossing techniques are often ineffective at removing disease causing plaque and can even damage your gum tissues.
Clean, healthy teeth and gums are fundamental for overall health and well-being. Oral hygiene and routine dental check-ups are essential for all patients, especially those with periodontal disease. We will make recommendations tailored to your needs.
