Kids Dentists in Tijuana
Our kid’s dentist or pediatric dentist in Tijuana specializes in carrying out the prevention and treatment of all diseases related to children’s and adolescents’ chewing and tooth organs. Our dentists in Tijuana provide dental care the entire family, regardless of their age.
Dentistry and pediatric dentistry are very similar—the significant difference between the two is in treating caries. Younger patients still have baby teeth which implies some modifications to the procedure.
Treating tooth decay is the most common dental problem among children due to the uncontrolled intake of foods with a high sugar concentration (such as candy). Protecting baby teeth, allowing permanent teeth to have a good environment, and other dental procedures are the specialty of pediatric dentistry.

First Visit to the Dentist
Going to the dentist at a young age helps create a record of oral health. It allows us to monitor the changes that occur over time. Prevent, detect and/or eliminate a problem as soon as possible.
In conclusion, child dentistry is recognized worldwide for its quality and long-term cost benefits. X-rays are often the only way to identify small cavities formed in younger teeth, which can increase in size, causing problems like tooth decay, nerve damage and childhood periodontal disease. Some children’s dental conditions require therapeutic devices to correct and/or prevent malocclusion. Thanks to our on-site dental laboratory in Tijuana, these devices can be elaborated quicker.
Pediatric Teeth Cleanings
Healthy teeth from six months ago can quickly become vulnerable to decay or misalignment due to 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. Still, these professional cleanings serve as an excellent aid to remove the plaque and the remains of food 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 the pediatric dentist in Tijuana, as the condition of your child’s teeth can change very quickly.
Common Pediatric Dentist Procedures
Besides treating tooth decay in children, there are other recurring dental procedures performed on younger patients, and their dental treatments need to be performed by a pediatric dentist.
- Sealants: Made of a resin material commonly applied to the chewing surfaces of the premolar and molar teeth. This resin-based sealer is placed with an adhesion technique and the main purpose is to prevent decay formation on the occlusal surfaces
- Space Maintainer: This device is placed when the patient has lost a temporary tooth. This device’s objective is not only aesthetic but rather 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 to 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 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
- Pulpotomy: This procedure consists of removing the nerve pulp chamber when decay has affected this irreparable part of a tooth or wear of a tooth has exposed the pulp. Once the nerve is removed to avoid pain and give this tooth its functionality, either a crown for baby teeth is placed or a permanent filling

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.
