Dr. Taylor does an outstanding job! I highly recommend seeing him. My old dentist used to hurt my mouth. Night and day difference with Dr.Taylor. The several times he has numbed me I didn't feel a thing. His dental hygenist and assistants are friendly as well. I no longer dread going to the dentist.

All-on-4® Dental Implants FAQs
What are all-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary solution for those looking to replace missing teeth. Instead of using an implant for every missing tooth, this method utilizes just four strategically placed implants to anchor an entire arch of teeth. This approach offers both stability and durability, ensuring a natural look and feel for patients.
How do they differ from traditional implants?
Traditional dental implants replace each missing tooth with a separate implant. While this method is effective, it may require multiple surgeries and a longer recovery time. On the other hand, All-on-4 implants streamline the process. Patients can benefit from a more efficient procedure and quicker healing by using only four implants to support an entire set of teeth.
What are the main benefits of all-on-4 implants?
Patients benefit most from the speedy recovery time associated with All-on-4 dental implants, as well as their cost-effective nature. In addition, these implants are very natural and discrete. Incorporating the latest advancements in dental technology, Dr. Taylor's practice in Bay City, MI is dedicated to providing top-tier care for our patients.
