Dental Hygiene and Therapy

Dental Hygiene

For most people in Manchester, dental hygiene and therapy is key to maintaining a beautiful smile. Here at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics our team of highly-skilled professionals help you do exactly that. We offer expert care to deliver the highest standards of dental hygiene treatment. We strongly believe that when you pay us a visit, you'll see that dental hygiene Manchester doesn't get any better than this.

The term 'dental hygiene' refers to a combination of 'at home' treatments including regular and thorough brushing, flossing and rinsing, coupled with advanced 'in clinic' cleaning techniques. It's this arrangement of dental hygiene and therapy Manchester and maintaining high standards of oral hygiene at home that culminates in the overall protection of a patient's teeth.

So Why Do You Need Professional Cleaning?

Even though you brush your teeth and floss regularly plaque can collect in the most hard-to-reach places. If it isn't removed then it can build-up to form a hard layer called tartar. The problem is that once tartar is formed no amount of normal brushing is going to remove it. Not only this, it can also damage the bone that supports your teeth eventually causing periodontal disease. In order to eradicate tartar you'll need to have your teeth cleaned using specialised dental hygiene treatment. If you have this done regularly it isn't generally painful and doesn't take long to remove. In essence a six-monthly visit to the hygienist should ensure that your teeth remain plaque and tartar free. Consider it a safety net for maintaining great looking teeth.

Visits to our hygiensits are split into 20,30 or 40 minute visits. Our hygienists are continually updating their knowledge and skills and we will always provide you with the most advances techniques and advice

Other tricks you can carry out at home to avoid plaque build-up

You should aim to brush your teeth at least twice a day and for around 3 minutes per session. Make sure you cover every tooth and hold the brush at a 45 degree angle to target those areas that are difficult to reach. Finally remember to clean both the inside and outside surfaces of your teeth for maximum effect. In addition when flossing look to move the floss backwards and forwards in between the teeth in a vertical motion and make sure you access every gap where food particles and debris might be hiding.

Brushing and flossing are essential for keeping plaque and bacteria at bay and you should aim for at least two minutes of brushing twice a day. Brushing should include every tooth and you should take care to target the areas that are hard to reach, as they are prone to plaque collection. Try to hold your brush at 45 degrees and remember to clean the biting and inside surfaces.


Flossing is an excellent way of reaching the areas that are often missed during brushing, including the tiny gaps between the teeth and the gum line. When you floss, move the floss back and forth with a vertical action for best results. Our dental hygienist will be happy to offer more tips on how best to care for your teeth and gums.
