Dear valued patients,

At Martin-Taylor Dentistry our #1 priority is your health and safety. Currently, we are available to treat your emergency dental needs. One of the important reasons we are doing so is to reduce the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments, if we were not available. We want to assure you that our office at Martin-Taylor Dentistry is a safe, clean environment to get the necessary treatment. We not only meet all requirements, but we exceed them, for your safety and ours. Delaying treatment of infection or pain can lead to more serious issues that may become more complicated to treat and can compromise your overall health, not just the health of your mouth.

At our office, we are thoroughly screening all calls and patients to maintain a safe environment. Patients are easily able to maintain social distancing. All rooms are wiped down before and after treating patients and the Dentist and the Martin-Taylor Dentistry Team always wear proper gear for their protection and yours.

We take extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all our patients. We adhere to strict medical hygiene policy, including thoroughly disinfecting all common areas and surfaces (bathrooms, lobby and chairs, counters, door handles, etc…).

Our office is clean, safe and ready to treat any dental emergencies during these times. We look forward to reopening to a regular schedule as soon as it is appropriate to do so. In the meantime please do not to hesitate to call us with any questions (520) 747-9024

Sincerely,
Jeff Martin DDS
William Taylor DDS

Can You Get Dental Implants in One Day?

Man looking at his laptop in Tucson AZ area

It sounds wonderful but dental implants in one day are not possible. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Which is exactly the case with many of these ads promising One Day Dental Implants. They are twisting facts to make it seem like something that it isn’t. Reality? It will take one day to have your implants placed, however, there are multiple appointments that lead up to that “installation day” and other appointments that follow after the installation of the implants, with time in between for healing. A temporary crown can be placed until the bone adheres to the implant but the permanent crown implant is not attached until months later. The claims that most dental insurance plans cover one-day implants are simply not true as well.

Why Get Dental Implants?

Implants are the best replacement of a tooth other than the tooth itself. They look and feel like real teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care.  

What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants at Martin-Taylor Dentistry

Each case and person is different. Some of the variables your dentist will consider as they advise you considering implants are:

  • How many implants are needed? One? A few? Or a whole mouth full?
  • Is the implant to be replaced in the front of the mouth or in the back?
  • How strong is the bone where the implant will be placed?
  • If bone grafting is needed, can a small amount of grafting be done at the same time the implant is placed?
  • If more extensive bone grafting is necessary, an additional 4-6 months of healing time is needed prior to the implant being placed.
  • Is there a damaged tooth that needs to be removed before the implant can be put in?
  • What is the overall health of the patient?

Other Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Implants

Is getting dental implants painful?

Dental Implants

During the procedure, conscious sedation can be given to patients if desired or numbing medicine (local anesthesia) can be given. After the procedure, over the counter pain medication is all that is usually needed.

How many appointments will you need for a Dental Implant?

First, you will need a consultation and exam appointment. There will be another appointment to surgically place the titanium post-implant into your jawbone. At this appointment, you may or may not have a temporary crown attached to the implant. There will be other appointments to make sure everything is healing well. After the gums and implant area have had proper time to heal (approximately 4-6 months), the final appointment to place the permanent crowns are scheduled. The basic process is the same for each implant. The time and treatment will vary, depending on the health of the teeth and gums, and the number and type of implants.

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
