Complete dentures can be categorized into two, "Conventional" or "Immediate."
Conventional denture starts with the process of removing teeth for at least eight weeks, before manufacturing denture. This is practiced to heal the tissues from extractions, fix the dentures accurately and keeping the tissues under the denture stable.
Fabricating Complete Dentures in this way is very precise, however for a patient who does not have a denture, would be without teeth during this time. This sounds a tough situation for patients, but don't get worried, it's here Immediate dentures come into role.

Being a patient who get into teeth replacement, it takes minimum 8 weeks to get heal the tissues after removal. For the time being to adapt conventional dentures, immediate dentures can be used.
