How long do you have to wait to get permanent dentures?

  • Question
  • Updated 2 weeks ago
After the one month appointment yesterday and some adjustments, I asked how close am I to getting my permanent dentures. I was told, "one YEAR"! What???!! is this unusual? She said that with full extractions, it takes that long.  Originally, I was told 4 to 6 months.  I would like others' take on this.

I sure wish SOMEONE would answer this question, I really need to know if I should be fighting Affordable Dentures on this issue.  Is a one year wait normal?

It depends how well and fast your gums heals, my surgery was done last May 2017 I decided to do the full top and bottom dentures I was very lucky no swelling in my face just sore gums for a week went home with temporary dentures and at the 5 1/2 months my dentist felt I was ready for my permanent dentures its was a big adjustment happy with the permanent ones yes it still a big adjustment with certain foods best of luck.

how long are you supposed to use the temporary dentures they give you when they extract your teeth before you get your permanent ones ? I'm a 29 year old female that was in an accident and lost over half of my teeth and they had to extract the other half, I got immediate dentures so they put the temporary ones on before I woke up from anesthesia after they extracted the remaining teeth I went to go see my regular dentist within 48 hours as advised and he said I need a liner for the bottom but until my gums settle down from all the swelling and everything sets back into place for me to wear this the temporary dentures as much as possible and they told me six months to a year we will have to do the permanent ones well I didn't go back for a year due to medical reasons and now 2 years later it called the same dentist and tell them I need to come in so we can finish and he is telling me that you can only get dentures every 5 years on insurance but but I'm still wearing the temporary ones I never got my permanent dentures and now they told me to just go into the office and leave my only set of teeth the temporary ones at that with them so they can send them to a lab to be aligned and that will make them permanent and it can take 2 to 4 hours and while they're doing this I will have no teeth in my mouth and I'm 29 years old that is absurd I thought and was told the temporary ones have to be replaced within a year after you're gone and everything settle down does anybody have any advice about this situation

Hi Sharon, my dentist told me the same thing, I have to wear this wicked ugly temporary thing.  It looks like I have Chicklets for a denture.   

I asked a few people with dentures and they all said they waited 3-6 weeks for permanent. Of course some people heal sooner than others, but a year? It's mental.  

I think that 5k seems high, are you getting all your teeth pulled?  I think they told me like 2k for pulling my 6 upper teeth, and sticking a full temporary in.  I guess the more teeth pulled the more money.  But it doesn't hurt to look around and see what others are charging.  I called a new dentist today, see what he thinks. 
Good luck.

Im pretty sure it depends on the healing process of your gums. Before making the final mold and plates the dentist wants to make sure your gums are completely healed and no longer shrinking or changing. From what I understood my dentist when getting my partial she said some people can have the final mold and permanent plates in 4 months others takes longer it just depends on the healing of the gums. The more teeth that are removed the longer the healing process. I surely hope they at least gave you immediate plates for temporary use.

They should be temps then! Talk to your dentist like everyone has said! You paid for them you get to have a say in what they look like! Also Russell Klein is great I'm ordering a back upset for myself! He is a veteran denture maker he worked in a lab making dentures and now makes them affordable for people! Like I said I have perms from a dentist but will be ordering some from him due to shrinkage I prob might have and to have a back up! Call that dentist and best of luck to u keep us posted

Thank you, Joe.  Yes, I had all 16 of my teeth extracted and received immediate dentures.  Originally, I was told 4 to 6 months, but now they're saying a year.  She didn't really explain why, though.  She did say it takes longer when all the teeth are removed.  It's just depressing.  I'm a little more than a month removed and these temps are disastrous.  At least I had the permanent dentures to look forward to, now I have to wait a whole year.  I'm pretty bummed about it.  Thanks for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.

Hi Judith - I'm going to have to have a partial on bottom as well, and I wondered about how it will stabilize.  The partial will replace the back two molars on both sides, and the premolar on one side.  That leaves nothing for the partial to hang on to except the left premolar and the right canine, if that's what it's called.  There isn't a way to create suction like the top one can, so how will it stay?

I was actually considering getting one implant as a back molar on each side on the bottoms, so the partial can fit over that and not flop around - the surgery for that would be about $3K here, and the crowns would cost about $700 combined. 

I have yet to get one dentist to advise me whether it would work to have a nylon partial that would fit directly over an implant tooth though.  Shoot, my dentist didn't even think there was such a thing as nylon partials - she wants to make mine of metal and acrylic, which she calls a "hybrid." 

But I'm having Russell Klein make my partials from now on, even my temps, so I'll ask him if you can stabilize a partial with an implanted tooth.  I'd have to think that if it worked, it would be worth the cost.  I'll let you know what I learn as I find out more, if you're interested.

I had a lot of problems from day 1 with my temporary set, I’ve been back for at least 10 adjustments and 4 new softlines since I’ve had mine done in November. I’m holding off on getting my permanents until I don’t need so many adjustments and relines.

I had 5 teeth out on the top and have only had a partial in for about two weeks. It’s really beautiful the only problem is it’s loose due to shrinkage of where the teeth were pulled. I get my permanent in about 2 months. Should I use fixodent to make them fit better?

I'm 2 months out after extractions on lower they only needed to pull 5 teeth and I kept the 5 front ones. They rock back and forth depending on which side I am chewing with so I use fixodent. I received a temporary denture on top and it has been nothing but misery. They are making me a new temporary because the one I have was made so badly. Is the permanent really better?

Hi Cathy, I had my teeth extracted 5 months ago I had to pay out of pocket for a temporary denture to wear while Im healing sometime within the year I will get my permanent denture, my insurance only pays for one, and I didnt want my healing denture to be my permanent denture because of all the adjustments they do as you heal.

hang in there. I actually went for about 4 years before I finally gave in to getting my partial. In the beginning I thought oh my gums will get tough and Ill be fine with out my teeth. And yes they did but eating was such a chore. I had a tooth chip just this past Christmas so when I went to get it fixed I told my dentist to set me up for appointments and fix everything and do my partial.
Im sure the immediate dentures are very bothersome with your gums constantly changing shape and shrinking as they heal. But you want to make sure that they are completely healed so that when you do get your permanent dentures they will fit better and you wont have to keep having them adjusted.  I really dont know much about how to help with the fitting problems but hopefully in a couple more months your gums will stop changing so much and maybe your dentist can build them up a little to make them fit better. Good luck to you I hope everything works out.

Hi Cathy,

I had all my teeth extracted, 27 I believe, just less than a month ago. I had full immediate dentures put in the same day. I was also told 6 months until I get the permanent dentures.  I have had one soft reline about a week after the extractions and have another one scheduled on the 9th of April, about 6 weeks after the extractions. After that I think I am done until the 6 month mark. It is my understanding that the mouth changes dramatically the first month and then gradually for up to a year after that. But I do think 6 months is the standard, although as Joe mentioned, people heal differently. I have also found that each day, for the most part, brings improvement. Last week I thought I sounded terrible, like a drunk deaf person. Now my voice is at about 90 to 95% back to normal. (Although the letter "s" is tough.)

Hello my name is Alizza
And I have had periodontal disease for some time , and I must say it is a very depressing situation , to literally watch all your teeth break off , your gums recede right before your eyes , the changes you see with how your teeth and gums look it makes you look like a different person all together , I plan on having all my teeth extracted I have no other choice my gums are infected with this disease and it's not curable unless you extract the teeth , it harbors the infection in the gums and can cause mouth pain , Jaw pain , ear aches , and depression , it's also a very embarrassing condition to have because it can cause severe Halitosis and leave a very bad taste in the mouth area and no matter how much you brush , rinse , or floss nothing helps ,
Only solution is to extract all the teeth to get rid of it unfortunately it's sad but yes all my teeth has to go I'm so scared and worried about how dentures will make me look and the quality of denture because i diffidently am concedering dental implants over denture and hopefully adventually I can work my way to hybridge dentures and look and feel better again more confident thanks everyone hope this was able to help someone make that decision today please text me a link anytime would love to hear from everyone especially with periodontal because I can relate better thank you so much please leave feedback

I had 16 teeth pulled on March 5th.  2 weeks after that I was given my first soft liner.  On May 21st I got my second soft liner.  On August 28 I get my 3rd and final soft liner.  Not sure exactly how many months after that I'll go in to get a permanent liner.  1 week after I got my first liner I had to use Fixodent.  By the time I was going in for my second soft liner even the strongest Fixodent wasn't keeping my lower denture in for more then 4 hours at a time.  I'm told that I won't see much shrinkage now while waiting for my 3rd liner.  Now it's just a matter of my gums reforming cover the sockets where my teeth were.  At this moment in time I can say it was the best decision I've made in a long time to get dentures.

There will be continues shrinkage of your gums until you meet the "big man" regardless. Implants are the greatest money makers for dentists. Constant expensive adjustments are mandatory to avoid infections and misalignments. Regular dentures are good for 5-7 years max. Why? Because of the shrinking gums/bones. Has anybody ever noticed in the elderly who have all their teeth intact how the bone has receded as evidenced by the large gaps between gum line and teeth?  Well, implants are great for ones ego, not having to admit to dentures, but in the end its all the same. Make sure you get tested for VIT D deficiency. VIT D3 is highly important for your bones. And as we all know teeth and yaws are mostly bones and calcium. So take your supplements.

With the letters that start with S, T and F, what I have found helps is to open your mouth wider than normal, speak slower and exaggerate the word and it makes it clearer. I have only had my full uppers and lowers for less than a week and I find this helped me. Maybe it'll help you.

I was told six months, as well.  However, if things are still really changing in your mouth, I could see them putting it off.  I have had mine a month.  Full uppers and lowers.  I have went in at least once a week to have them relined during healing.  A total pain in the mouth and other places but it helps.  If your dentures aren't fitting well, go back in and have them reline them.  I have noticed that once one spot is fixed, another will pop up as swelling goes down.  I go in for my soft reline on the 8th.  I cannot wait. Six months for the permanent dentures.

The temp ones are made thicker to give them material to adjust as our gums heal. That being said, make them fix them! I could have purchased a set that you only received one permanent set and I thought how can you get a good fit when your gums will change so dramatically? After all my extractions, I received not enough gauze, a container for my dentures, denture brush, cleaners, and some adhesive. It was a trial size on the cleaners and adhesive. The adhesive does help keep things in place.

Thanks Annie, I never even got gauze,  but two pieces of 'paper', not soft quite hard.  I had an hours journey home, bleeding all the way, and went through nearly two packs of tissues.  I always have them, thank goodness.  I am determined not to use glue of any kind but get the best fitting dentures I can.  I ate potatoes today with just the top denture in. I made them with chilli, onion and garlic; delicious.  My family had the chicken and salad. :-((

My gums are tough on the lower left and right sides where I previously had bridges for over 30 years.  So although it's a new experience, I managed to chew with top denture and gums. I cannot wear the bottom denture, just too sore; can't be a good thing to force the issue, I'll just get sores.  Hurts all over the place.

Unfortunately, adhesive will have to be a part your life until the healing process is over. The lower dentures are considered floaters since you can't get the same suction as with your uppers. You aren't that far in your healing process so I wouldn't expect a perfect fit and you will have to go in for adjustments. It's a pain but just the way it is.

I've talked to many denture wearers who just don't use the glue. Do you go on DANS? There's quite a number of people there who have good fitting dentures and have never used glue! Just the thought of it makes me gag! No way! I'll get some excellent dentures, they're out there. I have time. I'll know more after Tuesday. This dentist has a duty of care towards me. These dentures never fitted me right from the git-go so they need to do something? I've also been left with nerve damage, found out online i should have been forewarned about the risks, and he should have looked at my CT Scan to locate the nerves to avoid them. He did neither! I'm not a happy camper. Not much point having an expensive xray if he's not gonna use it.

It just boggles the mind that with the ever improving technology in the world and the amazing things that have been happening that dentures are still so primative. They should be able to scan your mouth and make amazing dentures. What a nightmare. 10 months! until my permanent dentures. Arrgh

Last Friday was my one-month mark and I've been back multiple times for adjustments and relines.  I'm doing well with the uppers, but the lowers remain a disaster, unfortunately.  Thank you for the reply, Annie.  Much luck to you.

Just had temps. put in 3 days ago, and can't wear bottoms as they just swim around my mouth. If I try to eat with them in I end up trying to eat them too. LOL

Just wondering if I will have to pay additionally for all these relines etc.  can't see them doing it for nothing.

I'm also a month with my dentures. My top just falls down unless I glue it in, but am about 2 months from my permanent ones and kinda don't want to bother him. And it's about a 6hr round trip to my Prosthodontist too. My extractions were done in two surgeries ; my back teeth coming out 3 months before my front 12 were. So the back half of my mouth will have had 6 months, were as my front will only have 3 to heal.

No problem, ask away. The final extractions (15) and dentures insertion were done on December 18. I think I got a very good fit. I haven't had a soft reline yet so I do need adhesive. I use powder for uppers and adhesive for lowers and they stay in 12 hours or more with little movement. Sometimes the lowers loosen a little on me towards the end of the day, bUT nother to the pointment where they pop up.

My dentist was adamant that I would get a better fit this way. I wanted to doffer everything at once but he highly recommended this method and I think it was the right choice.

I loved getting my full set of dentures the same day I had my extractions. I didn't even feel any of the areas, where he used only novalcaine to pull my teeth. I have loved getting immediate same day dentures. The entire thing went wmuch bett than I would have ever expected it to.

It's been 9.5 months since I had all my teeth extracted and denture implants put in my lower jaw to attach my bottom dentures. It's going to be another month before I finally get my permanent dentures. My temporary dentures are way to big for me and my mouth is constantly sore. I've lost 60 lbs since this began because I can't eat like I once could and the stress involved in this nightmare.

Rosie, I cannot use fixodent, it makes me sick to my stomach. I did however use the Crest White Strips two times once the professional effects and once the flexi-fit that are supposed to stretch so I spent about $100 on those strips and I lost some of them because they wouldn't grip properly and slid right off my bottom teeth and I could not put it back on, so can you help me with getting something that works for whitening natural teeth without me spending more money?

OT but in response to Patty above.

((it's dang near impossible to get in there.  They sent an email verification, I clicked it it said it expired.    I did just read above in the comments to try going in from Google ~  I did it worked,

Now I have to wait for my profile to be approved.  Who ever moderates the board I am guessing doesn't log in too often to moderate.  And what in the world could they "have to approve" prior to anyone even posting?  Until a person posts they have no idea what they have on their hands. 

But Zipity is Patiently Awaiting Approval :)    ))

Hi Patty, a 6 mth Reline usually is in the $200 price range. Adjustments should be included at no cost. I'm not sure if this answers your question.

How wonderful the service is offered!

I can go with an immediate perma here as well; a lot of folks go that route.

I am sure if it is donated care they know what is involved in the donation and having functioning denture is part of that, it will fit.  They will adjust it, but speak with the provider and ask just so you have peace of mind.

They provide that service out of compassion (rare find these days it seems) I have to believe you will be treated like a queen throughout the whole process.  Ask in advance so you know exactly how it will be.

Actually, that site has a user limit. Until a member is inactive and they delete them, they cannot add new members (I've heard that they are always at the limit). I don't have the time to hang out on two sites so this one is fine for me. I signed up once and dropped it.

Lol Josie I am with u but would also enjoy getting on that Dan's to. And zipity thank u so much it is just scary none the less about what they will do I don't want them to just pull them slap some teeth in and be like I'm done. I feel so blessed for the help but what can u really get for free lol, I no dental options is a great place for people that cannot afford dental help and I feel excited and all that for the help they said the dentures would be the same as everyone else's they do an have done so I am just hoping and praying that is the case. So are immediate permanents as good as receiving another set of perms in 6 months to year??? I hope to get on Dan's asap and will remain here as well I need all the info i can get are u on Dan's to?? If so can u help me get on??? Thanks so much for rep lying

Hi patty, I work at a Denture Clinic in Canada and to avoid having patients pay so much in costs we offer the immediate as the permanent denture. Once the 6mth Reline is done it will fit just as good. It's hard to tell where you will be getting it but at our Clinic we use high quality acrylic and teeth. Once a Reline is done after 6 mths you will rarely need adhesive except if you're planning on eating let's say more difficult food that day.  Hope this helps a bit. If you have any more questions I will do my best to help. I also have some of my own posts on here if you take a look through the last 2 mths. :)

Apparently densities differ with the time frame ad I do not quite understand why but so it is. Each person is different but basically for me I had to let my gums heal 3 months before I could b=get my snap ins done....every case is different. My temporaries are going to become my secondary set so temps are as good as the perms in most cases.
