Dental check-ups for smiles that last a lifetime
Take a proactive approach to your dental health with private dental check-ups at our Wakefield clinic.
When was the last time you went for a dental check-up?
If the answer is “I don’t remember,” then it’s time to prioritise your dental health. You might be thinking: “I have no issues with my teeth; why do I need regular check-ups?” Attending dental check-ups is essential to keep your mouth healthy and prevent tooth decay or gum disease. Remember, it’s much easier to prevent dental problems than cure them.
Prolong your teeth’s lifespan with regular dental check-ups
Making dental check-ups a core part of your oral care routine will help you identify, prevent, and even resolve dental issues before they get worse – saving you the time, money, and stress of complex dental procedures. A regular, professional review of your mouth and deep cleaning will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, bright, and strong today and in the future.
Why do you need frequent dental check-ups?
Just because you’re not experiencing dental pain doesn’t mean you have perfectly healthy teeth. Dental check-ups are the best way to keep on top of your oral health and prevent stressful dental issues down the road.

Frequently asked questions.
Are you taking new patients?
Absolutely! If you’re new to Advance Dental, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and see if our private dentists are the right fit for you.
What's the best way to prevent gum disease?
Plaque is the biggest cause of gum disease, as build up puts pressure on your gums and can lead to gums receding. Removing plaque at home by flossing and brushing will help you minimise build up and getting a professional cleaning will further remove any build-up.
How often should I get dental check-ups?
We recommend attending dental check-ups at least every 6-months. Our private dentists may advise more regular dental check-ups if they’re concerned with any dental issues they diagnose.
What happens if I just ignore getting my teeth cleaned?
As plaque collects around your teeth and gums, you increase the risk of mouth and teeth diseases and tooth loss when the supporting tissues around your teeth begin to decay.
Why is it important to get regular dental check-ups?
Frequent dental check-ups are vital in preventing more severe dental issues in the future like gum disease, tooth decay, tooth loss, and oral cancers.
How much does a check-up cost with your private dentists?
Our private dentists charge £50 per dental check-up
Both are ways to get straight teeth and each has advantages and disadvantages.
Restorative dentistry is a quicker solution and can sometimes be completed in a single visit. More often two or more visits are required depending on the complexity of the situation. Some tooth preparation is needed and the restorations may need replacement during a lifetime.
Orthodontics tends to take longer, between 3 and 24 months depending on the complexity of the treatment. Generally, a lot of visits are required. There are more rapid orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign clear aligners and Quick Straight Teeth. Conventional orthodontics (fixed braces) takes longer but delivers better results.
There are different so-called invisible braces for teeth straightening. Some are removable and some are fixed to the teeth. Invisible aligners in orthodontics are worn full time including those provided by Invisalign dentists.
Irregular or crooked teeth may look less attractive and they can also make it harder to clean your teeth and maintain good dental health.
Straighter, whiter teeth can dramatically improve your confidence and self-esteem. At Advance Dental Care in Wakefield, we understand everyone’s smile is different, and we will discuss your wishes and requirements to agree the best plan for you.
