Experienced Orthodontic Hygienist in Manchester

At Orthodontics Manchester, our in-house hygienist is an integral part of your treatment process.

Maintaining excellent oral hygiene and ensuring the health of your gums is crucial, both before and during orthodontic treatment. As a patient at Orthodontics Manchester, you have the advantage of receiving care from our experienced hygienists, specifically trained to treat orthodontic patients. During your visit, you will undergo a comprehensive professional cleaning and receive personalised guidance on effective tooth and gum care, especially while wearing braces.

Our hygienist services extend beyond orthodontic patients; we also offer high-quality and affordable treatments for non-orthodontic patients. This includes friends and family of our orthodontic patients. 

Why are Dental Hygienists Essential for Orthodontic Care?

Preventive Care: Preventative Care: Regular appointments for cleanings contribute to the prevention of dental issues, addressing potential problems before they escalate during orthodontic treatment.

Professional Cleanings: Orthodontic appliances, such as braces and aligners, can create additional challenges in maintaining oral hygiene. Dental hygienists are trained to navigate these challenges and provide thorough cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Patient Education: we provide personalised tips and guidance, ensuring that patients are equipped to maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout their orthodontic journey.

Gum Health: Orthodontic treatment can sometimes affect gum health. Dental hygienists closely monitor patients for signs of gingivitis or other gum-related issues, taking proactive measures to address any concerns promptly.

What our Patients say?

Dear Dr Shabs. This is just a note to say thank you SO MUCH for everything you’ve done for me and my disasterous teeth! Ever since I smashed my front teeth in freshers week I felt like I’ve been in the best possible hands! However, I’ve just finished a teaching course and am going to go and teach English in Jordan in two weeks time and therefore have had to register somewhere else 🙁 Whenever I’m back living in Manchester again though, I’ll be back. Cheers again, Helen (the one who does Arabic)
