Happy New Year to you from the team here at Bamboo Dental. We hope you enjoyed the celebrations and wish you all the best for the coming year! A new year is a chance for a new you so have you included your dental health in your New Years resolutions? Why don't you send us a Tweet or write a message on our Facebook wall to let us know what your resolutions are? Here at Bamboo Dental we are passionate about top dental health so we would like to give you some tips for getting your teeth in the best condition for 2014. Of course, in order to get your teeth in tip-top condition a trip to see your dental hygienist is a must. In fact hygienist services should be part of your regular dental care regime - if you would like to know more read on to find out why:
What is a hygienist?
A hygienist is a licensed dental professional who is an expert in preventative oral care. They are there to work together with your dentist to help you achieve the best level of oral health, as well as to educate you about the best oral health care practices.
What does a hygienist offer?
Typically a hygienist is responsible for scaling and polishing teeth although their role goes much further than this. At Bamboo Dental our hygienists can also help you with other issues from the painless treatment of advanced chronic gum disease, to curing bad-breath with a Bamboo Fresh Breath Polish. Clients can rest assured that all practices utilise the best of dental technology and are as gentle and pain-free as possible.
When should I visit my hygienist?
Whatever your age or level of dental health you will need to visit your hygienist on a regular basis. We believe that prevention is better than cure and recommend you see a hygienist at least every 6 months - and every 3 months if it's at all possible.
Where can I find a hygienist in Cardiff or South Wales?
If you live in Cardiff, south Wales or the surrounding area get in touch with us and we can make you an appointment to see one of our own highly trained, friendly and professional dental hygienists. Did you know that you don't have to see the dentist in order to book an appointment with a hygienist?
