Is it bad to wait for gums to heal before trying dentures?

I wore my immediate set for the 1st 24 hours but gums are sore from extraction. Can I just not wear them until gums have healed more?

I don’t think it is bad. I waited a month before I could even wear them part time. I wear them a lot now but it didn’t hurt me a bit. My gums were too sore and my Dentures too big.

These are just temporary until I heal and get my permanent pair. I'm ok with not wearing them until my gums heal. Thanks for response. It's alot harder of a situation to go through then I thought it would be. Nice to have people to talk to. Thanks

I waited for my gums to completely heal. Likre three months. You have to do what you feel is right for you. You know how you feel.

Pretty much!! But I'm still learning how too eat certain foods. But if I'm not going out I don't wear them at all. But I must say I like them in now.
