Replace Your Missing Tooth with a Dental Implant in Tucson, Az Area

While there are many options for replacing missing teeth, a dental implant is the only way to replace the entire structure of your tooth. Martin Taylor Dentistry offers patients in the Tucson, AZ, area dental implants and mini-implants to restore functionality to their teeth and give them the confidence to smile again. Dr. Taylor is an experienced dental implant dentist that can provide this service without referring you to an outside specialist.

Restoring functionality with dental implants

Missing teeth make it difficult to chew your food, which can contribute to vitamin deficiencies and indigestion. It can also add a lot of stress to your jaw, which can lead to tooth fractures or painful TMJ issues. It will also eventually change the shape of your mouth and jaw, leading to dental crowding and bone loss. Dental implants are placed in your jaw to simulate the tooth root and provide support for a crown, dental bridge, or even dentures, so you can chew your food and protect your oral health.

With dental implants, your face will retain its natural shape, and you can speak easily without slurring your words. Dental implants can last for decades with the right care, but it’s crucial to address issues that lead to tooth loss, particularly gum disease. Dr. Taylor and the staff at Martin Taylor Dentistry can provide treatment for tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues to ensure your smile lasts for years to come. We’ll also take care to work with you on improving your home hygiene habits to prevent further problems in the future.

What to expect from dental implants

Dental implants take a little longer than other restorations to place to allow for healing, and every patient’s treatment will look a little different. Dr. Taylor will need to treat any underlying gum disease before placing the implants, and if you need an extraction, you may have to wait a few weeks for the site to heal. Some patients may require bone or tissue grafts to support the implant. This process can also add a few weeks of healing time.

During the procedure, Dr. Taylor will surgically place the implant so it can fuse to the bone. After the implant has healed, you’ll come back to have the abutment and crown placed. Dr. Taylor will take impressions of your mouth for a high quality lab to make your crown. After a couple of weeks, you will return to the office for one final visit to place your crown. Caring for your dental implant requires similar home hygiene as your natural teeth, as well as routine professional cleanings.

Implants are an effective and successful way to replace missing teeth. Dr. Taylor will discuss all of your options with you during your consultation and help you find the treatment that feels right to you. Contact our office in Tucson, AZ today at (520) 600-6925 to schedule an appointment.

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.
