Do you have to go toothless if you get all your teeth extracted?

No. An immediate transitional denture is an option. Your dentist takes an impression or mold of your teeth and removes the teeth from the stone models. Your dentures are fabricated and when ready, you have your teeth removed and your dentures inserted the same day so you do not have to go toothless. Depending on the number of teeth remaining, immediate implants and fixed dentures may be possible.
Nope. Dentures and implants are your options. Discuss your concerns with a local dentist who can examine you and quote you fees.
