Replace a Full Arch
of Teeth with Dentures

Patients with very few remaining natural teeth often struggle to eat and speak properly. Widespread tooth loss can even negatively impact your self-confidence. To restore function and aesthetics to your smile, Dr. Brian K. Tovoian offers dentures as a more affordable solution for patients who need to replace one or both dental arches.

In addition to traditional dentures, Brian can place and restore implant-supported dentures for patients seeking improved stability at his practice in Cedar City, UT. His attention to detail and genuine investment in the well-being of his patients allows him to provide an unparalleled level of care.

Why Opt for Dentures?

Living with missing teeth can make simple daily activities such as going out to dinner difficult and even embarrassing. Dentures are prosthetics designed to replace an entire row of a teeth. Made from a gum-colored acrylic base and realistic-looking false teeth, your denture is customized to fit your dental arch.

Restoring your smile with dentures can offer many functional and aesthetic benefits, such as:

  • Improving your ability to chew
  • Restoring a normal diet
  • Maintaining your natural facial contours
  • Preventing wear and tear of remaining teeth
  • Improving your ability to enunciate clearly
  • Restoring confidence in the appearance of your smile

However, while dentures help many patients regain confidence in their smile, they are not always the ideal solution. Because they sit on top of the gums, they cannot stimulate new bone growth and consequently cannot stop jawbone atrophy. They also require occasional adjustment as the jawbone changes shape over the years.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are removable. These prosthetics rest on your upper or lower alveolar ridge and are held in place by natural suction and a mild dental adhesive. While not as stable as the implant-supported alternative, they are one of the most affordable restorative options available.

Brian will help you consider all your options for replacing your missing teeth to develop a customized treatment that meets your needs.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are secured in place with dental implants. While more costly than the traditional option, implant-supported dentures also offer patients greater stability. To accommodate patients with jawbone atrophy who would not typically be candidates for traditional implants, Brian also offers mini dental implants.

What to Expect

If traditional dentures seem like the most appropriate option, Brian will take digital x-rays and detailed images of your bite and jaw. The information gathered during this examination will help the doctor to meticulously plan the design of your dentures. From this design, adept technicians will handcraft your prosthesis at a local lab for a natural-looking result.

After a few weeks, you can return to our office to receive your finalized restoration. The doctor will ensure that your dentures fit securely against your gums. He will make any necessary adjustments to make sure they fit as comfortably as possible.
