If you've lost most or all of your teeth, custom dentures offer a trusted solution. Today's dentures are incredibly lifelike and versatile.

The dentists at Harrison Dental Group in Fort Wayne, IN, provide a variety of solutions that can meet your aesthetic goals and budget.

Could implant-supported or traditional dentures be right for you?

What Are Dentures?

Full dentures can be used to replace all of the teeth along the dental arch, while partial dentures can replace a few missing teeth in a row. Harrison Dental Group works with a trusted local dental lab to craft custom prosthetics that look natural and feel comfortable. Dental implants can be used to securely anchor your denture in place.

How Do Dentures Work?

Traditional dentures consist of a base of hard acrylic or similar durable material that holds multiple false teeth. Our Fort Wayne dentists offer partial dentures for patients who have natural teeth remaining and full versions for individuals who have lost an entire arch of teeth. Whether you need partial or full, traditional restorations allow you to remove the prosthetic at night or for cleaning. 

How Can Treatment Benefit You?

Each patient comes to our Fort Wayne office with unique oral health needs and aesthetic goals. No matter what your situation is, Dr. Harrison and our team of skilled dentists can work with your budget to deliver a durable custom restoration that looks and feels just like natural teeth. Advantages of treatment include:

Improved Function and Speech

Tooth loss is more than an oral health problem. Missing teeth can make speaking and chewing difficult. Once one of our doctors has placed your new denture, you can enjoy improved speech clarity and natural chewing function.

Restored Cheek Volume

The loss of multiple teeth can leave individuals with sunken-in cheeks, making them look older than they are. Following the placement of a new full or partial denture, you can benefit from restored cheek volume and a more youthful, healthy-looking appearance.

Improved Oral Health

Missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can increase your risk of further tooth loss. Restorative dentistry prevents your teeth from shifting by placing a barrier that holds your teeth in place. 

Reliability and Unlimited Adjustments

We have decades of experience placing dentures, with Dr. David Harrison having over 30 years alone. Our doctors pay attention to detail, provide exceptional dentistry, and warranty our work. For the life of your restoration, you can benefit from unlimited adjustments to ensure that you experience long-term comfort.

What Are My Options

Our Fort Wayne dental practice offers partial dentures, which replace several teeth at once. They differ from full dentures, which can replace a full arch. Partials are also held in place with small metal clasps that grasp nearby natural teeth. Dr. Harrison and his team can go over these popular partial dentures options during your consultation:


Also known as an acrylic removable partial denture, a flipper is an acrylic retainer that snaps in your mouth to fill in gaps in your smile. One or more natural-looking teeth are attached to the gum-colored retainer. Dr. Harrison can have your customized flipper denture created in 24 hours.

Flexible Acrylic Partial

Another way you can replace missing teeth and improve chewing ability is by seeking a flexible acrylic partial denture. Its plastic retainer is thinner and more flexible than the flipper's acrylic retainer, so it might feel more comfortable in your mouth.

Metal-Based Dentures

These teeth restorations are attached to a lightweight, hypoallergenic metal base that rests against your gums. They do tend to cost more than plastic-based dentures, but they are known for strength, durability, and stability.

Other Types of Dentures

Immediate Dentures

If you require the extraction of multiple teeth, our Fort Wayne dental practice can provide you with immediate dentures. These prosthetic teeth can be placed right after your teeth are extracted, aiding in controlling bleeding following multiple extractions. Immediate restorations also allow our patients to begin adjusting to their prosthetic sooner than the traditional procedure. We can split the process by removing the back teeth first, then letting the jaw heal before removing the front teeth. These same-day dentures may need to be realigned or replaced with a permanent restoration after about six months.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dentures can also be held in place through the use of dental implants. Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to replace tooth roots. This type of denture will never shift or make noise, does not require messy adhesive or irritating metal clasps to stay put, and allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods with confidence. Dr. Harrison and his team perform all the steps involved in fitting you with customized implant-supported dentures in-house, including creating your digital treatment plan, surgically placing your implants, and attaching your permanent lifelike dentures. We can also provide you with teeth-in-a-day temporary dentures to wear until your permanent ones are ready.

Dental Implants
Offer Unrivaled Stability

Patients who wish to have a stable base for their denture can undergo dental implant surgery performed by Dr. Keith Harrison before receiving an implant-retained prosthetic. Dental implants also offer many oral health benefits, including the prevention of jawbone atrophy.

Once your candidacy has been established, the implants can be placed during an oral surgery procedure at our Fort Wayne dental practice. Local anesthesia and calming sedation dentistry, if needed, will be used to ensure that you are comfortable throughout your treatment.

What to Expect for a Traditional Denture

Your treatment timeline will depend on what type of denture you choose. A traditional denture requires at least two visits to our Fort Wayne dental practice. Patients who require one or more tooth extractions will need to undergo this restorative dentistry procedure before their prosthetic can be placed. 

During your first visit, an impression of your smile will be made. The mold or impression will be sent to a professional dental lab that has been thoroughly vetted. Once your row of false teeth arrives, a second appointment will be scheduled to place your new prosthetic. 

We understand that some patients worry that their prosthetics won’t fit. That is one reason why we offer adjustments for the life of the denture. One of our doctors will also explain how to maintain your new prosthetic so your investment in your oral health lasts as long as possible.

Partial Dentures Can Complete Your Smile

In addition to full dentures, we also offer partial dentures. Partials rely on clasps that attach to a nearby tooth or teeth for support.

The Implant Procedure

Treatment can vary slightly between patients but you can generally expect these steps:
We offer sedation dentistry to ensure that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. 
We offer sedation dentistry to ensure that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. 

1st Appointment

Once you are comfortable, incisions will be made in your gums, and one or more implants will be placed into your jawbone.

Healing Period

The entire healing process takes four to six months. Some of our patients choose to wear a temporary restoration (teeth in a day) during this time so they can speak and chew normally.

2nd Appointment

Once the area has healed, you will return to have a metal bar or another type of attachment device called an abutment placed over your implants during a second surgery. A precise impression is then made that will be sent to a trusted laboratory.

3rd Appointment

After a few weeks, your custom dentures will arrive at our Fort Wayne dental practice. You'll come back at that time so your dentist can ensure that it is a good fit and make any adjustments if needed.

"Everyone at Harrison dental were very friendly and efficient. A procedure I had been dreading for a long time seemed like it was over in no time. Thank you so much for making it a positive dental experience." Carla Glasper, 5-Star Google Review

How Much
Might My Dentures Cost?

Depending on your needs, dentures can range from $500-$3,000. This price will depend on the type of dentures you choose, as well as the materials. Choosing implant-supported dentures is more expensive, but it's an excellent investment in your bone health and oral function.

Making Custom Dentures An Affordable Solution to Tooth Loss

Dentures are typically covered to some extent by insurance, and our Fort Wayne office offers convenient in-house payment plans. Dr. Harrison also offers financing through CareCredit® and Citi-Health to help patients afford dental care.

Our dentists can also break treatments into several appointments so you can pay over the course of multiple visits to one of our four Fort Wayne area locations.
