Our recommendation matters

  • Some people suffer from overcrowding of teeth within the mouth, often exacerbated when the wisdom teeth break through.
  • On many occasions, wisdom teeth are incorrectly positioned in the mouth, they can potentially cause tooth decay on the teeth next to them and cannot be easily corrected.
  • They can cause severe pain and inflammation of the gum. In these situations, the removal of the wisdom teeth may be the best alternative.

Wisdom teeth removal

The Removal Of Wisdom Teeth Is One Of The Most Common Surgical Procedures Carried Out In The UK.

  • A wisdom tooth extraction will start with the administration of local anaesthetic and the wisdom teeth will be removed during the same dental appointment.
  • Some people suffer from overcrowding of teeth within the mouth, often exacerbated when the wisdom teeth break through. On many occasions, wisdom teeth are incorrectly positioned in the mouth, they can potentially cause tooth decay on the teeth next to them and cannot be easily corrected.
  • They can cause severe pain and inflammation of the gum. In these situations, the removal of the wisdom teeth may be the best alternative.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from your jaw bone.

  • Tooth extraction usually occurs when there is too much damage to a tooth and it simply cannot be repaired.
  • Decay, infection and crowding are other key triggers for tooth removal. For Regular extractions patients receive a local anaesthetic, which numbs the area around your tooth so you’ll feel only pressure, not pain, during the procedure.
  • The dentist then uses an instrument called an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps to remove it. Tooth extraction is usually a quick procedure. When you have a damaged tooth, your dentist will aim to fix it and save the tooth by using dental treatments such as root canals, crowns or fillings.

If The Tooth Is Too Badly Damaged Then Extraction Is Needed.

  • Excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, and crowding can also lead to tooth extractions.
  • Those who get braces may need one or two teeth removed to provide room for their other teeth as they shift into place.
  • Additionally, those who are undergoing chemotherapy or are about to have an organ transplant may need compromised teeth removed in order to keep their mouth healthy.


  • Going to the dentist should not be an uncomfortable experience. Still, if fear or anxiety keeps you from making an appointment, sedation treatment may be the right option.
  • We can provide most dental treatments under conscious sedation to make the dental procedure easier and provide a better experience.
  • Often nervous patients or people who have had bad experiences at the dentist will prefer to have sedation for their treatments instead of having the treatment carried out by administering local anaesthetic alone.
  • These sedation techniques will help you to relax while at the chair and take your mind away of the procedure being carried out. It involves administering a sedative drug before the dental treatment, helping the patient forget the surrounding clinical environment, reducing anxiety and relaxing.
  • The sedation may also help numb your mouth, depending on the sedative agent used.
  • The dental procedure is then carried out as normal, with minimal disruption and very limited lasting memory of the treatment for the patient.

Platelet Rich Fibrin Treatment

Advances in dental treatments techniques and innovative equipment is changing the perception of dental treatments in general, leading to better outcomes and an overall better experience while at the dentist.

PRF is a living biomaterial derived from a patient’s own blood that helps to promote healing and the regeneration of bone and soft tissue, both of which are critical to the success of any oral surgery procedure.

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.
