Needing to have all your teeth extracted and dentures fitted can be stressful, especially if you have to go without any teeth for any period of time.
But nowadays it’s possible to complete the process within hours and get your dentures in a day.
- 7am – You have a consultation with your dentist then an x-ray. Then a dental impression is taken.
- 2pm – You return to the dental clinic to have your teeth extracted. Your dentures are then put in place.
Over the next 6 months or so your gums will shrink a little during healing, so you will need to plan a dental appointment to get your new dentures relined so that they fit perfectly.
If you take care of your dentures correctly, they will last you for many years.
If you can’t afford to have dentures made by a dental professional, you could consider DIY dentures.
