You can extract as many teeth as required.There are different kinds of dentures that can be made.once you've extracted all the teeth,you can have immediate (interim) dentures made.after 1 year you can have new dentures made because the bone shrinks causing these dentures usually get loose.
the other option is to extract few teeth at a time and wait for the sockets to heal.after a month you can have new dentures made.
