Question:
How soon can you get dentures after having your teeth pulled? ...Visitor from Baltimore

Answer:
For many patients, the same day.

When patients are told that there is a required waiting period, it is more of a reflection of what technologies the dentist has and doesn't have for removing and replacing teeth efficiently.

Many dentists possess the technologies to remove teeth, provide bone leveling, provide tissue grafts for low spots, provide suturing to all soft tissues as needed and provide an immediate denture all in one appointment.

These "all under one roof" dentists are not easy to find, however. Too many dentists still refer out the oral surgery part, which often requires patients to go without teeth in one or both jaws.

Bone leveling, which can create a perfect level of bone all the way around the arch, eliminates the problems of rocking and loose dentures. Grafting products are commonly use to fill in the extraction sockes and to fatten up gum tissue where needed. This too, is often a treatment that has to be referred out, usually to an oral surgeon who is providing the extractions.

Try to find dentists who provide all treatments within their own practice. If difficult to find, consider getting a consult with a prosthodontist.
