How Soon to Get Fit For Dentures

I had to have all my teeth pulled, all 18 of them; they were all bad. My dentist told me to wait three weeks to get my dentures for the swelling to go down. He said that they would give me more trouble if they made them right then. He said that they would fit better if I wait. I've been reading a lot of articles were people have been getting them right away. So what is better to wait or get them the same time the teeth are removed. Please help. I go back the 24of this month to get them. I am scared to death.

I think it's better to wait. I've done it both ways and I think it's easier to know what pain is the pressure points that need adjustment or if it's the pain of the toothloss. Anyway don't be afraid, it'll be great.

I had my dentures put in the day after getting my teeth out. That is what my dentist recommended. I would say if you trust your dentist, go by what he says. I'm sure there are different schools of thought on either way, but I also suspect not either way would be right for everyone.


Your dentist is the professional. If you trusted him to pull the teeth, trust him to say what he thinks would be best for you. Good luck

I have a partial upper, the dentist had taken impressions a couple of weeks ahead of P-Day (Pull Teeth Day) so when he pulled the teeth the plate went in and he said to keep it in for at least 48 hours. It worked for me and my dentist, but every dental extraction is different and so is every dentist.

Since your teeth have been pulled you're through the worst of it. Nothing more to be scared of, really, truly, and honestly.

Your new dentures should fit painlessly right away and look great-be sure to smile a lot:)

In the front the dentist put in a pre-prepared temporary partial right after they did the extractions. Apparently this method helps reduce swelling and gets you used to wearing it quicker.


Eventually all swelling will be gone and a new impression is taken for the permanent one. Having not known anyone I could ask about it, I was a bit skeptical at first but it worked out just fine for me.

I had 19 teeth pulled and they put my teeth in my mouth that afternoon. I had a bit of an unpleasant night but no trouble after that. I went to Affordable Dentures and got their New Denture Wearer Package and then I got a reline after just a few weeks and an new set of teeth after 12 months. I have had them for over 3 years and they fit fine. It can be scary but I am so glad I went that route!
