Hi, I’m 65 and will be getting dentures. I’m retired and have decided to wait for my gums to heal before getting permanent dentures. You opinion would be appreciated. Thank you Roy.

You just going to eat soup or baby food until your gums are healed? Walk around without teeth? What is the upside of waiting? I imagine that most people do fine with immediate dentures. But hey... whatever works for you, it’s your mouth.

The dentures fit much better with less pain. That's the upside.

It took 2 weeks and I stayed home. I had immediate dentures made but too painful to wear them.

Many people want immediate ones so they have teeth, but if you're comfortable waiting I don't see the issue. I think waiting and letting the gums heal is the better choice anyway
