Combine your check-up Appointment

With Maida Smiles, we know that our patients are busy, and often the last thing they want to do is visit the dentist over and over again.

So, we’ve made it very easy for patients to combine their check-up appointments with other treatments like hygiene sessions to save them time and money.

But, it’s not just this. If we identify any concerning problems during your check-up like decaying or broken teeth, we have the facilities to treat your issue the same day – whatever it is. 

Signs that you need a check-up today

There are a few signs and symptoms that shouldn’t be ignored as the longer you leave them, the worse the situation can become. 

  • Heightened tooth sensitivity to touch or hot and cold
  • Sharp tooth pain, especially when biting down
  • Toothache that won’t go away
  • Staining on the front surface of teeth or tooth turning black
  • Lumps on the gum, or pus pockets
  • Black triangular spaces between teeth
  • Receding, throbbing, tender or bleeding gums
  • Your last check-up was six months ago

If you think your case is urgent, we have a special emergency dental service, which reserves a certain amount of spaces each day for patients to be seen within four hours of their call. 

Treatments we might recommend at the end of your dental check-up

  • Dental filling (white) for cavities from £195
  • Root canals for pulp infections and extensive decay from £800
  • Dental crowns from £900 for cracked or fractured teeth
  • Tooth extraction for teeth beyond saving from £300
  • Wisdom toot removal for impacted teeth from £450
  • Periodontal programmes to treat and manage gum disease from £115
  • Repairs for broken prosthetics like dentures (POA)

Types of check-ups we offer

Extensive Dental Examinations Are Essential For Identifying Potential Issues That Have Yet To Show Any Symptoms.

  • It is important to get a comprehensive exam during your first appointment with a new dentist, if you haven’t been to the dentist in three or more years, or if you have experienced any significant health issues since your last dental appointment.
  • Unlike a general dental examination, comprehensive exams include several steps, designed to identify specific potential issues.

These Include:

  • Digital X-Rays
  • Gum Disease screening
  • Oral Cancer screening
  • Oral examination
  • Digital X-Rays are used to check for decay, cavities, bone loss and other potential issues.

Routine Dental Exams Are The Most Efficient Way Of Identifying Abnormalities And Preventing Potential Issues From Growing.

Identifying and dealing with problems early enough increase the chance of treatment success and can also help patients save money in the long run.

Routine examinations include visual inspections to check and touch:

  • Each tooth
  • Your gums
  • Tongue and cheeks

If there is an obvious cavity or infection, an x-ray is to be taken and your teeth will have any build-up of plaque removed with a hygiene session.

  • Detect problems early, when they’re most treatable, and provide tips for caring for your child’s teeth.
  • Combined hygiene appointment to clean your child’s teeth and evaluate the risk of tooth decay.

For Children Aged Between 6 Months And 1 Year

  • Removal of stains or deposits on teeth by gently scrubbing.
  • Assessment of how much fluoride your child is getting through diet and use of oral hygiene products. We may prescribe a fluoride supplement or apply a topical fluoride treatment to your child’s teeth if necessary.
  • Identify any sores or bumps on your child’s tongue, inside the cheeks, and on the roof of the mouth while evaluating the impact of habits.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It was my first time in the clinic and I had a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Samantha was very helpful with booking the appointment and fast replied to my messages. I had an appointment with Dr. Ines do Carmo. She is lovely. She explained all the treatment and the best option for my case. Cintia was helping Dr. Ines with the appointment. Cintia is very friendly. Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
