There’s a growing body of evidence that the health of your gums is linked to the health of the rest of your body. For example, researchers are finding links between gum disease (or periodontal disease)—which is an infection in your mouth—with cardiac problems.
We’ve been using dental hygienists at Progressive Dental for 14 years now, and their dedicated job is to bring your mouth and gums to their optimal healthy state. That’s their dedicated job, they can devote a lot more time to it than the dentists can, and they’re extremely good at it. And they’re lovely people, too!
