Frequently Asked Questions

There are different types of dentures. Some dentures use implants to add stability and retention.

 You should wear your dentures for around 8 hours a day.  It's generally recommended to take them out when you go to bed. It take time for the gum and oral tissue to adapt to your new denture. The more you wear them the more comfortable they will feel. 

 If your denture cracks or breaks please contact our office immediately. Our in house denture lab offers same day repairs for most cases of a cracked or broken denture.

Wearing removable dentures can take some getting used to. Initially, dentures can feel a little strange in your mouth, but this will pass with time.

You may also experience a small change in your speech, excessive salivation, and different taste with new dentures. Again, this all usually goes away over time. If it continues, contact Mint Dental and tell us what’s wrong.


Helpful suggestions to help you adjust to a new denture:

  • To adjust to chewing with new denture implants, start with soft foods and work up to harder ones. Chew on both sides.
  • Eat with your back teeth, so you don’t dislodge your dentures.
  • Use adhesives until you can control your tongue and lips.
  • You may have gum soreness as you adjust to your new dentures. If you develop a sore spot, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and return to us for adjustments.

You should clean your dentures at least once a day, and after eating if needed. There are several over the counter products that can be used to clean the dentures. It is also important to brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft bristled toothbrush.

The average lifespan of a denture is about 5 years.  It depends on what you eat and your bone structure. Visit us regularly so we can check your denture’s fit, offer denture care and hygiene suggestions, and assess any potential issues.

Traditional dentures are removable. They also take time to get used to, limit what you can eat, and offer no support for your jawbone. If you’re missing many teeth, we may recommend an implant-supported option to ensure the long-term health of your jaw and an improved lifestyle.
