Have confidence in your teeth
If you’re wearing dentures, that should be our secret
There is no substitute for your own teeth for both appearance and function and making dentures that perform as well as natural teeth is one of the most difficult challenges of modern dentistry.
Taking time to get the best result
It is true to say that good dentures can improve your quality of life. At Littleborough Dental Practice we aim to surpass your expectations, making sure you have an attractive appearance and can eat comfortably.
Providing the dentures to restore your mouth takes place over a number of appointments, depending on how many teeth need replacing. Initially we take accurate measurements and recordings of your mouth so that we can create the denture in wax. This allows us to check all the essentials and you (and your family if you wish) can see them in your mouth and amend or approve them until everyone is happy. Once the wax has been converted into the plastic it is difficult to make amendments so we like to spend our time in the preparation stages to ensure our patient will be happy with the finished result.
Dental Implants to help to stabilise loose dentures
If you have problems with existing loose dentures, dental implants can provide an anchor to help
