If you are missing some or all of your teeth, Mint Dental is extremely experienced at fitting partial and full dentures.

Made from acrylic, nylon or metal, dentures fit snugly over your gums to replace missing teeth and counteract any problems missing teeth can cause – such as trouble eating and speaking, unwanted movement of existing teeth, and facial sagging.

Unlike crowns and bridges, dentures need to be removed daily for cleaning.

Today’s dentures can be made to look exactly like natural teeth, and can even be secured with dental implants, removing common problems such as slipping and clicking and giving you greater confidence when eating and speaking.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are an effective solution when most or all your natural teeth are missing or removed. Complete dentures secure themselves to the gums via suction, which patients can support by using a denture adhesive. Like a partial denture, patients can remove their complete dentures at their convenience to clean and disinfect them.

In some cases, our patients opt to secure their complete dentures with a few dental implants, providing a more comfortable, stable fit and eliminating the need for an adhesive.

What are removable partial dentures?

Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth. This removable appliance comprises of a gum-coloured plate with prosthetic teeth attached to it. Metal or tooth coloured clasps hold the denture in position, using a few of your natural teeth as anchor points.

A partial denture not only fills empty spaces left behind by missing teeth but also helps keep remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment. You can insert or remove a partial denture as needed — for example, to clean the appliance.

How do I care for my dentures?

Maintaining the cleanliness of your dentures will help to keep your gums and any remaining teeth healthy and your dentures free from stains.

Ideally, you should take out and rinse your dentures after each meal and brush any remaining teeth. If this is not feasible, brush and rinse them at least once a day with a denture cleanser or liquid hand soap to eliminate food particles, plaque, and other debris.

If you use an adhesive to hold your dentures in place, clean off any excess adhesive from your gums/teeth after removal. Continue to brush your natural teeth and your tongue. Finally, soak your dentures in cleaning solution overnight to disinfect them.

You should never clean your dentures with:

  • Whitening toothpaste — it is too abrasive
  • Any cleaning products containing bleach. Metal fixtures can tarnish, and dentures can become discoloured and weakened
  • Hot water — it can distort the shape of your dentures
  • Harsh, abrasive cleansers
  • Stiff-bristled toothbrushes

Never allow your dentures to dry out, as this can cause them to warp. When not wearing them keep your dentures in room-temperature water.

Don’t wrap your dentures in a cloth or paper towel, as someone might mistakenly throw them away. Keep your dentures away from small children and pets who might mistake them for a toy.

Always rinse your dentures before putting them in your mouth to remove residual denture solution. They are delicate, so take care when handling them.

Do I need to visit the dentist if I have dentures?

You must continue to preserve your oral health and book regular appointments with your dentist so they can keep track of your overall oral health and the fit and condition of your dentures. If your dentures become loose or uncomfortable, schedule an appointment with our dental practice on 020 7928 4474 as soon as possible.

Are dentures my only option?

We can use a bridge to fill a larger gap left behind by a row of adjacent missing teeth. Dental implants are a popular solution for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth.
