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.
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.
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.
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.
