At Martin Taylor Dentistry, Tucson, AZ families can find a range of services from preventive to restorative and cosmetic dentistry. But what truly sets us apart is our devotion to using the latest dental technologies for state-of-the-art dental care, while still providing a comfortable, home-like atmosphere and compassionate, gentle care. In addition to routine dental cleanings and traditional dental procedures, we offer several additional dental services that help us provide you the best, safest care possible.
Most people have more than one memory of holding uncomfortable bite-wing x-rays in their mouth for seemingly endless amounts of time while traditional x-rays were taken. With digital dental x-rays at our office, we can quickly take much higher quality images than those traditional films did, which enables us to more accurately diagnose and treat you. They are immediately available on the screen next to the dental chair and serve as a very educational useful tool for us to help explain to you what is happening in your mouth. Even better, digital x-rays expose you to lower doses of radiation.
Dental fears are a very real issue for many patients. It is estimated that up to three-quarters of people in the United States have some degree of dental anxiety, which is why we go the extra mile when it comes to keeping you feeling calm and comfortable during your dental treatment. With conscious sedation through either nitrous oxide gas (laughing gas) or an oral medication, you can relax in peace while you get your necessary dental care. Even though you are awake and can follow instructions and talk to us during your treatment, you will feel calm and will likely have little to no memory of your time in the dental chair afterwards.
