Dental Implants Bypass Typical Denture Troubles

Our Cedar City dentures patients sometimes have concerns about the drawbacks of traditional dentures. With a denture supported by dental implants, though, they can avoid many of those downsides. Wondering how?

Implants Increase Stability

You won't have to worry about your dentures slipping out of place when you choose an implant-supported restoration. With a stable implant-supported denture, it will be easier for you to chew, talk, and smile with confidence.

Implants Mean Easier Use

Patients often forget that they even have dentures when they opt for implant-supported restorations. That's because they're attached into place, so you don't have to take them out at night or apply denture adhesive in the morning.

Implants Prevent Bone Loss

While traditional dentures can address trouble eating or reduced confidence, they can't improve your oral health. Only dental implants can. They actually stimulate your jawbone tissue, preventing bone loss.

See How Implants Work

Each of your natural teeth has roots hidden below the surface that help keep your jawbone strong. When you lose these teeth, you also lose critical bone stimulation. Fortunately, dental implants can do two jobs at once: anchoring your restoration and stopping bone recession. As you can see, the process allows your new denture to remain stably in place.

Featuring Advanced Technology


Our dentist is always learning — and he incorporates that knowledge directly into our practice. He stays-up-to-date on advanced dental technology such as digital and 3D imaging. Both can help plan your dentures for a precise fit and beautiful aesthetics.

How Can I Pay for My New Dentures?

Our dentist has helped patients like you find happier, healthier smiles since 1992. One of the ways he makes that goal a reality? Accepting multiple convenient payment options, like:

Dental Insurance

We accept most plans, and can confirm if yours is on the list ahead of time. While insurance can help with the cost of your denture itself, it will not assist with implants or sedation.

Cash or Card

Our Cedar City dentures patients commonly pair their dental insurance with cash or credit cards. These options can also be used to cover the cost of treatment in full.

CareCredit Financing

CareCredit® is a trusted medical lender offering monthly payment plans. You can choose between low-interest or no-interest options, depending on your eligibility.

A Cedar City Denture Patient's Story

"On a late Sunday night, my upper denture developed a crack. Early Monday morning I called Dr. Tavoian's office and explained my situation. Despite being a busy Monday they made room for me at 10:30. Dr. Tavoian examined my denture and told me that it could be repaired...they fixed my denture by 4:00pm and made sure that my wife and I were able to get home prior to a coming snowstorm and not have to come back the next day...I could not have asked for a better experience and highly recommend Dr. Tavoian to anyone."

Your Comfort Is Our Priority Sedation Makes Treatment Possible

At our practice, Cedar City dentures patients can choose from three different types of sedation, depending on their level of anxiety. They are:

Mild Sedation: Nitrous Oxide

This safe gas is dispensed through a mask. Some of the main benefits include its adjustability and its ability to quickly leave your system. It wears off so rapidly that patients can safely drive themselves home from our dentistry practice after treatment.

Moderate Sedation: Oral Conscious Sedation

With this method, you will take a prescribed pill before your appointment. It will help you feel completely at ease. The effects take time to wear off, so you'll need someone to transport you to and from our office.

Deep Sedation: IV Sedation

IV sedation is administered through your veins and can be adjusted during treatment. Patients often have little or even no memory of their appointment. Like with oral conscious sedation, you will need to find a trusted friend or family member to take you home.

What to Expect During Traditional Denture Treatment

Our dentist, Dr. Tavoian, offers both traditional and implant-supported dentures. Receiving and healing from implants will add several months to your timeline, but the process is an excellent investment in your health and oral function. The timeline for traditional dentures can go something like this:
Nerves don't have to get in the way of your new smile. Ask us about sedation for easier visits.
Nerves don't have to get in the way of your new smile. Ask us about sedation for easier visits.

Dental Consultation

Potential Cedar City dentures patients can explore their candidacy with a detailed consultation. Our dentist will assess your smile, take X-rays, and let you know if you're a good candidate.

Denture Creation

Once our dentist has gathered precise measurements of your mouth, gums, and any remaining teeth, we will send them to a trusted lab. It takes about two to three weeks for them to craft your custom dentures and send them back to us.

Denture Fitting

When your denture is ready, you'll come back to our office for a fitting. Our dentist will ensure that you can wear your denture comfortably, making adjustments as needed. He will also ask if you have any questions or concerns.
