If you have lost all of your teeth due to injury, decay, gum disease, or some other mishap, dentures are the best way to restore your full smile. At our offices in Orem, Lindon, and Vineyard, we have been helping patients for years to regain their chewing abilities, speech abilities, and improve their overall appearance and oral health with dentures.
Dentures can be worn on the top and bottom dental arches. They are made from plastic materials and resemble natural teeth and gum tissues. Conventional dentures rely on suction forces to stay in place along your jaw bones. Before you can be fitted for your set of dentures, all remaining teeth must be removed. Then you must wait for your mouth to heal and stabilize.
If you decide to invest in immediate dentures, you’ll have the advantage of never being without teeth. These dentures can be fitted the same day all your teeth are removed. Once your mouth has settled and healed, you will need to return to the dental office for refitting through a process called a reline.
While the process of getting overdentures may take a little longer than conventional dentures, they are by far the best type of dentures. Overdentures require the use of implants in the jaw. You will need to have implants surgically placed and then the dentures will be made to clip onto the implants. These are the most comfortable and secure type of dentures. They give you a sturdy smile and chewing is easy. In some cases, if you already use conventional dentures, but want to make a switch, your existing dentures can be converted to overdentures.
Very friendly staff and great with care! Dr. Young is very kind, and efficient as well. The decor is nice and relaxing with a nice secluded play area as well. Great atmosphere.
I hadn’t been to the dentist in a really long time because I didn’t like my previous dentist. I loved canyon gate dental, they were so sweet and caring and Dr Young was very nice and you could tell he wanted to help. They worked with me and gave me a plan for what I needed. Highly recommended!
Canyon Gate Dental is a great place to go to get your teeth clean and worked on! I have been pleased with their work (I have been going there for seven years). They have good music and the dentist will occasionally sing along. 🙂 I haven’t met someone yet that isn’t friendly and they have reasonable prices.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Payne for over a decade (actually, it’s approaching two decades — yikes). He has terrific staff! Dr. Payne is one of the most personable people I know. He’s always concerned about my comfort and gives a very thorough exam. I highly recommend.
