Previously it was considered that dental treatments were only for people who had enough money, as they were very expensive. Today the field of dentistry has become accessible to everyone, especially in cities like Tijuana, Baja California where it is cheaper than elsewhere.

Tijuana dentists can perform treatments like root canal, mouth restoration, titanium dental implant, composite veneers, and more so you can get to have a beautiful smile.

Thousands of patients from all over the world come to Tijuana Mexico near San Ysidro, United States to have a dental service. Since procedures like dental restorations, mouth reconstruction, dental crowns, canal treatment, permanent crown restoration, permanent restorations and porcelain veneers are very expensive in private health in places like Canada, or even in the city of San Diego in the United States, they prefer to come to a Mexican dental clinic to get a high-quality dental care and a smile makeover, because the standard of care is high and the treatment prices are low compared to Canada and the United States.

Thanks to this, more and more people decide to treat their conditions and correct their problems with the help of a team of experts of a Tijuana dental clinic. This is also why some dental work treatments have become more popular in recent years, but to know whether or not you are a candidate for a procedure, it is necessary to know what it consists of and also know what are your dental options so you can have an optimal quality of care.


Most common treatments in dentistry

One of the most requested treatments within dentistry is orthodontics, with the help of this specialty abnormalities in the teeth and jaw bones are corrected. To achieve this, some devices are used to help with the movement of the teeth, so that the problem can be corrected, also you must verify that a qualified dentist is the one performing this procedure.

This treatment is also used to correct other common problems that are usually caused by abnormal patient habits. Like misaligned teeth caused by thumb suction or tooth displacement caused by poor tongue position.

One of the purposes of orthodontics is to provide the patient a better quality of life, so each treatment is personalized, specifically to meet the patient’s needs.

The duration of orthodontic treatment depends on several factors, including age and the type of problem to be treated. However, they usually last for about two years.


In recent years Invisalign has become one of the most requested treatments for orthodontist in Tijuana, thanks to its popularity. For many people, the main advantage of this treatment is that it is not perceived if it is being carried out, on the contrary, it is a very discreet treatment.

The constant use of these invisible aligners causes the teeth to straighten until they are in the right place. They have the advantage of being easy to clean and are custom made, so they are quite comfortable. For these reasons, it is one of the best options when the patient wants the treatment to be discreet.

Dental implants

It can be said that dental implants are the artificial replacement for teeth/roots that have been lost due to different causes. It is one of the most recommended treatments to complement partial dentures or in the need of bridges. Special metal screws and bolts are used for this procedure, which help replace the tooth.

Although it is one of the most popular dental procedures, not everyone is a candidate to do so. Another thing to keep in mind is that this procedure can vary depending on the patient’s need and the condition of their jaw.

Tooth veneers

Veneers are called thin sheets made of porcelain or composite that are placed in the front part of the tooth to improve its aesthetics. Although this procedure has become very popular in recent years, not everyone can be a candidate for using them.

Unlike other treatments, veneers do not provide better functionality to dental parts, so they are only recommended as an aesthetic treatment. It is a good option if you have worn or slightly damaged teeth and orthodontic treatment is not required.

With the application of veneers, the teeth manage to look more aesthetic and healthier, which  helps people’s self-esteem. However, the use of veneers as a replacement for orthodontics or any other treatment required by the patient is not recommended.

Before placing veneers, each case is evaluated to see if the patient is a candidate.

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. And it has been an important factor in the field of dental tourism.

Dental bridges

Dental bridges are often the most recommended treatment when there is a lack of one or more teeth. With the help of dental bridges, the space left by the previous teeth is filled, to avoid future problems such as the displacement of more dental parts.

Dental bridges can be made of different materials and can last a lifetime; however, this can depend on several factors. To lengthen the longevity of a dental bridge or crown, it is necessary to have good hygiene and go periodically with the dentist.

Maxillofacial surgery

Maxillofacial surgery is a procedure that seeks to treat fractures, injuries, and craniofacial malformations. Through this treatment, patients with cleft lip and palate are cared for, in addition to providing them with the care they require for their recovery.


The help of maxillofacial surgery is also used to perform the surgical extraction of some teeth. The best known are the wisdom teeth, because as they are retained dental organs, they cannot be extracted as normally happens with other teeth.

Like orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery has become one of the most requested dental treatments by patients. In addition to soft tissues in the mouth, injuries and tumors can be treated with this procedure.

However, it is important to clarify that not any dentist can perform this surgery. Only a maxillofacial surgeon can perform such procedures. The maxillofacial surgeon must have all the necessary permits in order to treat a patient.

Within dentistry there is a wide range of procedures but not any dentist is allowed to perform a maxillofacial surgery. These procedures are usually more expensive, but you have to take care of which dental clinic you are going to, because some dentists only care about the price of the procedure, but not for the dental health and the quality of service.

Although there are several treatments that can be done in dental clinics, these are some of the most commonly requested. It is important to go with an expert to perform any type of dental treatment, even if the treatment does not seem very laborious. Because you have to get the best quality service so you would not have any trouble in the future.
