In brief: It varies

There are many factors to consider after teeth are removed and a full denture is placed.
A simple replacement denture would require no extra time other than getting used to it but multiple extractions would require more recovery time. The number of teeth removed, how difficult the extracts were and you age and medical condition all are post of the equation.

In brief: Depends on you!

I have sent patients back to work the same day or had them wait weeks.
This is really case specific because of the variation between dentures. Factors involve how many recent extractions have been done, whether this is your first denture, how many implants are involved, and in how much retention you need the denture to have to work. Consult your provider for a specific answer relevant to you.

In brief: Right away

Provided you are comfortable you can go back to work right away.
It may take a little time to speak where you do not feel self conscious but you can go to work right away. Might advice would be get them on a friday soyuz have the weekend to adapt to them then you should be ok for monday.

In brief: Depends.

Getting the denture is not a reason to miss work.
However, if this is your first denture and it was placed immediately after extracting your teeth, it will depend on how you feel. If there is too much discomfort to concentrate on your work, you'd be better off staying home.
