anonymous asked 3 years ago

Hi I recently got dentures and I was told not to eat scotch mints as that could ruin my dentures – is that true?

Scotch mints could possibly break a tooth on a denture or partial because of the harness of their coating, and as well the inside filling may stick to your denture teeth.
If you are careful, you could have them, but be careful. They do have the tendency to stimulate saliva when wearing dentures, so that is a good point.
I hope this helps,
