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 you have during these times and after. Do not hesitate to call us with questions or concerns: (520) 747-9024

Sincerely,
Jeff Martin DDS
William Taylor DDS

Root canal procedure
Root canal procedure of a tooth

Few things elicit as many groans in our dental practice as the words “root canal.” But truly, root canal therapy has an unfair reputation as it is not much more involved than getting treatment for a cavity. Equipped with modern technology and years of experience, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Martin at Martin Taylor Dentistry can help patients in the Tucson, AZ area save their natural tooth with root canal therapy—getting them out of pain and back to their normal routine as quickly as possible.

What is root canal treatment, exactly?

Also called “endodontic therapy,” root canal therapy is a procedure that is done to remove the pulp tissue, nerves, and infectious material from the inside of your tooth. This may be necessary due to issues such as:

  • Traumatic injury to the tooth – sometimes issues can crop up from injuries that occurred many years in the past, such as old sports injuries
  • Tooth decay that has moved to the inner portion of the tooth
  • Infection within the tooth

What to expect

Typically, the need for a root canal is identified through x-rays of your tooth. During a root canal, the dentist first creates a small hole in the tooth to reach the pulp chamber. Then, the infected pulp and nerves are removed from the root canal and it is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. A material called gutta percha is placed into the now-empty canal, and then the opening is sealed with a filling and a crown is placed on top of the tooth for long-term support and stability.

Root canals are a highly effective treatment, and thanks to advances in technologies and techniques, they are about 95 percent successful in saving your tooth and keeping it healthy long-term.

Call us today

If you are suffering from tooth pain or you have been told you need a root canal but have been putting it off, we encourage you to give Martin Taylor Dentistry a call. With our relaxing office environment and steps to keep you comfortable during your procedure, you can receive the treatment you need and find immense pain relief afterwards. Call our Tucson, AZ office today at (520) 600-6925!

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.
