How long does it take to get dentures after teeth have been extracted?
After tooth loss or tooth extraction, the gums and bone tissue in the empty sockets need time to heal and attain a stable shape before you obtain traditional dentures. This can take a couple of months or longer, but waiting for proper healing is your best chance of achieving a stable fit. Alternatively, your dentist from Smart Smile Dentistry in Gainesville, Florida office can give you a denture immediately after extraction, but this appliance will need frequent adjustments as your gums and bone tissues heal, shrink and take on a new shape. An immediate denture is best used as a temporary measure until we can create your permanent denture based on precise measurements and impressions.
