Your first hygiene appointment

If you’re booking your first hygiene session with Maida Smiles Clinic in Maida Vale, then we would recommend combining your hygiene appointment by undergoing a check-up with the dentist first. 

At our clinic, patients will be pleased to know that we have packages that combine the two appointments, which will save you money and time. 

For £200, new patients can undergo a comprehensive check-up, which will consist of fully assessing the mouth to learn the extent of tooth decay and gum disease. 

From this appointment, we’ll be able to target oral health concerns far better with a clear direction for your hygiene appointment, which will aim to reverse any signs and symptoms of gum disease and decay we uncover.

What’s achievable in our hygiene cleans

  • Targeted gum disease prevention plans and programmes
  • Treatment plans to reverse gingivitis before it progresses
  • Remove stubborn tartar and plaque in areas that floss and brushing cannot reach
  • Blast surface stains, improving the brightness of your smile
  • Manage gum disease, reduce decay and prevent infection
  • Learning how to maintain the right level of oral care for your unique situation at home

Knowing when it’s time for your next hygiene appointment

Patients are recommended to visit our dental hygienist, Hala Jumah every six months. 

However, if patients are experiencing any of the below signs and symptoms of gum disease or decay, then it’s best to schedule one as soon as possible, and might benefit from booking a check-up at the same time.

  • Plaque forming around the gum line
  • Tartar and plaque building up
  • Throbbing, bleeding, tender and sore gums
  • Black or brown surface tooth stains
  • Toothache, sensitivity or pain from time to time

Deep hygiene cleans for gum disease and receding gums

You’re not alone if you’re struggling with common gum disease consequences like receding gums and black triangular pockets, and we know that some patients might be fearful to come in for a clean if say, for example, the plaque and tartar seem to be keeping your teeth together.

As root scaling and planning will remove the plaque, it can be scary to think what will be left behind. But leaving it there will only cause more damage to your oral health and cause your gums to pull away from teeth at an even faster rate than before. 

If you have cosmetic concerns about how your smile will look like after a hygiene session, don’t worry. There are several affordable cosmetic treatments that can help receding gums and close gaps between teeth. Explore them here.

Get to know our experienced hygienist

Hala Jumah has over 14 years experience improving the oral condition of hundreds of patient smiles.

Qualifying as a dentist back in 2005, Hala knows more about tooth decay and gum disease more than your average dental hygienist and can help patients spot the earliest of signs and nip them in the bud before they become real problems.

We also have the incredible Andreia, who has a wealth of experience managing gum disease and the aesthetic aspects of hygiene care.

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.
