Healing Time Before Getting Dentures

I'm getting all my top teeth pulled and my insurance only covers one pair of dentures so I will have to wait for my gums to heal before I get dentures. How long does it take for gums to heal? I can't remember if the dentist said 4 weeks or 4 months.

That's not how it is every where because my insurance wouldn't cover a temp pair. I had to walk around for two months when they removed my bottom and four with my top. Then my dentist told me that some spots on my bone needed a bone scrape and my insurance didn't cover it he told me I should wait.. I waited a month and the spots he pointed out hurt I can't chew the top take me give to ten minutes to take out. I'm in lots of pain. Forget eating and the teeth are bigger then my real ones were much bigger and I told him that he said no that's what u need and my son was scared when he first saw me. My family said that their way to big I look like a different person. I hope I can come to be able to rest with them and come to hey use to them.

He probably said 4 weeks... It takes a month for the tissues to heal.

I have just been told 3-4 months after extractions before they can fit the dentures. I am getting the whole top done (after the 3 from yesterday heal, roots were showing signs of infection).


Im dreading the wait for dentures to be fitted once all extractions are done.

It takes a minimum of 6 months to heal and major changes in your bone structure can occur for up to a year. Minor changes will occur for the remainder of your life, so dentures will need relines and eventually replacement. The teeth only last about 5 years if you are not hard on them and clean them correctly.
