In brief: That would depend

On many variables -- are you seeing an oral surgeon or a general dentist? How many teeth are being extracted? Are the teeth intact or broken down? The periodontal status of the remaining teeth? Are you awake or asleep for the procedure? The anxiety level of the patient?Medical history of the patient? To name a few.
Hope this helps.

In brief: Hour or less

Depending on the number of teeth involved and if additional procedures are necessary but in most cases less than one hour.

In brief: Curious

I am curious why a 35 year old would be interested in extracting all their teeth.
The length of the procedure is very short ( if you do it with sedation it will feel like 5 minutes) but the consequences of the procedure and the long term ramifications will affect you for a lifetime. Do everything you can to keep your teeth. Ask an 80 or 90 year old for advice.

In brief: Not long

Naturally, it depends on how many are left.
In the hands of a trained oral surgeon, less than 1 hour. Are you planning on dentures, or implants or both. You have options. At our center (by design dental implant center) in king of prussia, pa we can extract all the teeth and place implants and attach fixed (not removable) temporary teeth all in the very same day. Good luck to you

In brief: It's up to you.

Extractions can be done all at once or any other way you wish.
When the patient wishes to not have to be seen in public without teeth, it commonly will be accomplished by removing all the back teeth first. After these areas heal, dentures can be made. Once the dentures are ready, the front teeth are removed and the dentures immediately placed so the patient always looks good.
