How Long After Teeth Removal Can I Get Dentures?

December 14, 2022
Posted By: Dr. Christina Linn

We offer immediate dentures fitted right after tooth extraction! Many dental offices pull teeth, and you must wait for the lab to fabricate your denture. Our immediate dentures mean you’ll never go without teeth.

Immediate dentures placed as soon as teeth are extracted act as a bandage and promote healing.

About Dentures in Littleton, CO

We rely on the finest materials when creating dentures and prosthetics and work with labs that share our patient-centered approach to care.

Complete dentures work by replacing all missing teeth. They are restoration teeth on a gum-colored arch. The arch fits over your gum, and your dentist can place it immediately after extractions—even full-mouth extractions.

A partial denture is like a complete denture but works for sporadic or partial tooth loss. We also add special clips that fasten to healthy teeth to support your partial.

Denture Planning with Your Dentist

By planning your extractions carefully, we can have the immediate denture ready on the day we pull any remaining teeth. Patients appreciate this benefit because they do not have to go without a smile!

After extractions and immediate denture placement, your dentist provides aftercare instructions, including:

  • When to remove your immediate denture for cleaning or rinsing—you may need to wear it for a full day because it acts as a bandage.
  • Why you shouldn’t smoke cigarettes for a day or two following the extraction and denture placement. You should also not drink through a straw.
  • Foods you should eat and those you should avoid for the first few days to promote prompt healing.

Your dentist may provide custom instructions based on your unique case. And if you have any questions or concerns during recovery, never hesitate to call us.
