What is the timeframe for ordering and wearing the new dentures after extraction?
“I am missing almost all of my upper teeth and am considering full dentures. What are the costs for extraction and for the dentures? Also, what is the timeframe for ordering and wearing the new dentures after extraction?”
Answer: The fee for removing your remaining teeth varies upon the complexity of the procedure required to remove your teeth as well as your geographic location. Some dental schools, including hospital-based programs, may offer reduced fees if you use a resident (a dentist in training for additional skills). Also, a dental student may perform the procedure (under the supervision of licensed dentists).
The timing of the placement of the dentures can vary widely. Dentures making can possibly occur earlier to the removal of the remaining teeth. Furthermore, it may be inserted the day the teeth are extracted, or the teeth may be removed. The reason behind so that healing might take place before the dentures are delivered. This can take up several weeks or even months later. Most patients want to have dentures sooner rather than later, but dentures placed soon after or immediately after teeth have been extracted may need to be adjusted or replaced after the healing process is finished.
