I would like to know if flexible dentures are good for a person having bridging on one side (left side four teeth) and no teeth on the rest of the upper jaw. I heard you need to have more teeth to be eligible for flexible dentures? I would also like to know if life-long dentures can be fixed shortly after tooth extraction, after one or two weeks? Or should the person wait longer before fixing?
Welcome to icliniq.com. I read your query and can understand your concern. Fixed treatment for the missing teeth can be done using implants. Time duration to complete the procedure is from a week to a few months. It depends on the factors like the amount and quality of the bone present and the patient's medical condition. Immediate dentures are available and can be given immediately after extraction but will require planning in advance. As far as the flexible denture is concerned, it can be given in maximum cases if more than four teeth are present, and we can achieve a good amount of stability. I would require photographs and X-rays of the teeth and jaw for further information.
