Frightened man
Dental anxiety?

If you have a dental phobia, it can be difficult to come into a dental office for routine procedures such as professional cleanings, let alone more extensive treatments if you have an oral health issue. At Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ, we provide compassionate, gentle care and offer conscious sedation dentistry to help our patients with dental anxiety be comfortable.

What is conscious sedation?

Conscious sedation is the use of a medication, such as nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) that you breathe in or an oral sedative, during your dental treatment so you feel calm and relaxed. It can truly make the difference between suffering at home in pain due to a fear of the dentist and getting the dental care that you need comfortably—and often without recollection of your treatment! Oral conscious sedation is a great option for people who:

  • Have dental phobias—it is estimated that at least half to three-fourths of Americans suffer from some form of dental anxiety
  • Have an overactive gag reflex
  • Need to have multiple dental treatments done in one sitting

It is an effective option for our adult and child patients alike and can truly transform how you perceive dental visits. With conscious sedation, you remain awake during your dental visit, but feel calm, and often patients don’t remember their visit at all afterwards. When we combine conscious sedation with local anesthetics, you benefit from both a relaxing and pain-free dental visit!

A more comfortable, calming dental experience

At Martin Taylor Dentistry, we are among the approximately five percent of dental practices licensed to administer conscious sedation. In fact, Dr. Martin is an examiner for the State Dental Board and ensures that other dentists across the state are properly trained and have the right equipment to safely perform conscious sedation.

If you have been putting off getting the dental care that you need, or care for your child, we encourage you to learn more about how conscious sedation dentistry can help. Call Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ today at (520) 600-6925! We are here to answer your questions and help you get the care you need.

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.
