Extraction - Wait for denture? Value for money.

Hi
I had a upper back tooth pulled in early April. Overall I'm missing upper teeth 3,4 and 14.
I was going to have a mental denture but after some thought I think an acrylic might be better due to gum disease. (So that I can have extra teeth added on )

I've cancelled a appointment which I was to have in 2 weeks time, as I'm aware my gum is still healing.
There's still a grove. Is it better that I wait a bit longer so that I can save money on the denture.? Perhaps, have a denture done in September? How long after an extraction is best if I want a denture to last a while?

I'm not that well off, so trying to be cost effective.
Any advice would be really welcome so that I can make a good decision.

Mojopearl.,

I'm not a dentist but I do hear you on having to save money for procedures and that being a factor in when they get done. We can only do our best? Have you talked to your dentist about the differnces of metal and acryllic? and what wait time would be best. Ultimately its your decision and unfortunately our pocketbooks sometimes make too many decisions for us. I hope you can get in the time you want :)
