If you ever wonder why your dentist has dental hygienists at Steven P. Walker, DDS, Dr. Steven Walker is happy to tell you why! Dental hygienists can help you and your smile in many ways.

First, they can take X-rays of your mouth. This can benefit you and your smile because it can provide pictures of areas of your smile that aren’t visible to the naked eye. This can make it possible to treat problems with your underlying bones and roots. Thanks to your hygienist, your dentist can help you have a completely healthy smile.

Second, they can deeply clean your smile with professional techniques. This helps you protect your smile from major dental issues like gum disease, which is a serious condition that can result in loose and lost teeth if it’s not treated. So, in other words, thanks to your dental hygienist, your smile can be saved every six months.

Third, they can give you oral hygiene tips that can help you maintain a strong and healthy smile. They can tell you how to properly clean and care for your teeth and gums, including how to brush, floss, and even fight bad breath. Thanks to your hygienist, you can maintain a healthy smile between dental cleanings.
