What Happens At A Hygienist Appointment?

Our dental hygienists at Maida Smiles clinic typically offer a professional tooth cleaning service through tooth scaling and polishing treatments.

During your appointment, we will first conduct an initial dental hygiene examination to determine the state of your oral health.

And while you know your mouth better than anyone else, our dental professionals should be in charge of removing any plaque or tartar safely.

If you have any tartar build-up, this can only be removed successfully by one of the hygienists or dental professionals through a manual scaling process.

Following a quick examination, we will then begin to:

  • Scale your teeth, which aims to remove plaque and tartar buildup, especially in the areas that brushing cannot reach.
  • Perform an overall clean and polish to eradicate any lingering superficial stains.
  • Provide key takeaways and advice to help you manage your dental health properly at home.

Our dentists can also inform you about the best ways to avoid gum disease and tooth decay.

We can help you spot the signs of early gum disease so that we can quickly work to reverse the effects before they develop into more significant, more severe problems.

Here’s How Often You Need To Visit

No one has perfect oral health – not even us dentists. It takes daily hygiene routines and regular appointments with a hygienist to work on preventative care and dental appointments to repair any damage.

We recommend that you visit a hygienist at least once every six months. However, the frequency of your visits is often determined by your clinical needs and desire to have your teeth well taken care of.

One of our dentists might also recommend a hygiene appointment that involves thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums before complex treatments like dental implants can begin.

AIR-FLOW Therapy

AIRFLOW therapy is a stain removal treatment that gives your gums a deep clean. Using a wand to polish and clean your teeth disperses water, compressed air and fine powder particles to reach the nooks and crannies that traditional scaling treatment simply cannot.

AIRFLOW is known to be fast-working and suitable for removing surface stains. However, the effects will depend on your lifestyle. You can expect the stains to reappear much faster if you enjoy coffee and red wine.

AIRFLOW is different from teeth whitening because it is a non-chemical treatment that instantly removes surface stains without affecting the base colour of the teeth.

Therefore, with AIRFLOW, your teeth will appear cleaner and brighter, returning the teeth to their natural whiteness.

Dentistry For People Who Love To Smile

Ignoring conditions like tooth decay and gum disease only worsens oral health. When gum disease can only be reversed in the gingivitis stage, it’s crucial not to neglect your oral health for too long.

Why, you might ask? Because you’re at risk of losing your teeth.

As dentists, it’s our job to love teeth, so here’s your gentle reminder to book a hygienist appointment if you are overdue for one – it can save you thousands on dental care in the future and ensure your smile is brighter and cleaner for many more years to come.

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 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.
