Kids Dentists in Tijuana
Our kid´s dentist or pediatric dentist specializes in carrying out prevention, and treatment of all diseases related to chewing and tooth organs of both children and adolescents.
Dentistry and pediatric dentistry are very similar, the major difference between the two lies in the treatment of caries, because younger patients still have baby teeth, which implies some modifications to the procedure.
Besides treating tooth decay, which is the most common dental problem among children, due to the uncontrolled intake of foods with high concentration of sugar (such as candy), there are other recurring procedures that are performed to patients and are the specialty of pediatric dentistry in Tijuana.

First Visit to the Dentist
It´s important and recommended to inculcate the habit of going to the dentist at young age, this way you can have a record of oral health from an early age, so we can monitor the various changes that occur over time, and to prevent, detect and / or eliminate as soon as possible any problems that might arise.
In short, child dentistry is recognized worldwide for its quality and its long term cost benefits.
X-rays often are the only way we have to identifying small cavities formed in younger teeth, which over time can increase its size causing problems like tooth decay and childhood periodontal disease.
Pediatric Teeth Cleanings
Healthy teeth from six months ago, can quickly become vulnerable to decay or misalignment due to changes in diet or oral habits.
Besides visual examinations, pediatric dentists perform professional dental cleanings every visit.
Of course having good dental hygiene habits at home is very important, but these professional cleanings serve as an excellent aid to remove the plaque and the remains of food that are often caught between the teeth, all to maintain a healthy smile.
Regardless of the dental health in children, it is necessary to regularly go with an expert on pediatric dentist in Tijuana, as the condition of your child’s teeth can change very quickly.
Common Pediatric Dentist Procedures
Beside treating tooth decay in children, there are other recurring dental procedures performed to younger patients and their procedures need to be performed by a pediatric dentist.
- Sealants: It is made of resin material that is commonly applied in the chewing surfaces of the premolar and molar teeth. This resin based sealer is placed with an adhesion technique.
- Space Maintainer: This device that is placed when the patient has lost a temporary tooth. The objective of this device is not only aesthetic, but rather it is a procedure required to keep space needed to avoid permanent loss of the space, any deviation or over dental eruptions.
- Applying fluoride: Fluoride is a substance applied on the teeth by dentists to avoid further injury to the teeth that have dental caries and prevent them on the healthy teeth. Upon making contact with the teeth fluoride makes the tooth enamel become more resistant, keeping them from being damaged either by bacteria or by the acids formed when the patient eats and doesn’t brush his/her teeth.

What Patients Say
Had a great experience. Went in to have 3rd molars extracted. Had them both out in about 10 minutes! Felt very comfortable there. They have underground parking, so you don’t have to leave your car on the street. The price was great (compared to U.S. costs). They were very professional. I’ll be back soon for the other side!
Again I have to say the best place for dental work. Amazing staff, dentists, and assistants. I’m a huge chicken when it come to dental work. Not once did I feel uneasy or even pain. I had 8 lower teeth pulled. Go back in November for implants.
