Mexico has always been characterized for being a country attractive to foreign tourism, but its climate, culture and gastronomy is not the only thing that gets the attention of the people. Nowadays medical tourism is booming and it is becoming more common for Americans and Canadians to visit Mexico with the intention of some form of procedure due to the fact that Mexican dentists have reputable clinics and really good reviews from dental tourism patients.
At the same time, one of the main causes of tourism in Mexico are dental procedures. But why is dental work so requested in Mexico? We will solve your questions about dental work and how to make the most out of your trip or vacation in our country.
Reasons for dental procedures in Mexico
Dental tourists come to Tijuana, because is near with the U.S. San Diego border, and it is really easy to Americans and Canadians to come to get a medical procedure; like dental crowns, plastic surgery, porcelain crowns, deep cleaning in teeth, root planing, mouth reconstruction and more with a lowest price than with an American dentist.
Tijuana is one of the greatest dental tourism destinations in the world because most of its dentists have excellent online reviews, come from a reputable school, accepts dental insurance, financing in dental plans and there is no language barrier because they care that the patients understand the dental treatment and that is why the majority speaks english.
Since Tijuana is a Mexican border town, many clinics have shuttle services available or can make you a recommendation of the best choices in transportations, hotels, restaurants and more.
One of the most important things you must verify at the dentist office before going to a dental appointment is that the dentist must have a valid dental license. Once you verify that, you can guarantee that you are in good hands and you will have the best dental treatment options, excellent dental care, the best recommendations for your recovery process and for sure a very good follow-up care.
Undoubtedly one of the main reasons why dental work in Mexico is so requested is due to its affordable price. In countries like the United States and Canada, the price of dental treatments is often much higher, and sometimes even difficult for some people to afford. That makes people come to have dental care in the border town of the city of Tijuana, where you can find reputable dentists to make you a treatment plan at an average cost and most of the dental offices accepts credit cards, which makes it easier to afford, and you know what is even best, you will have a high-quality dental care by a licensed dentist.
To this we must add that things have been changing in the United States and medical and dental expenses that were previously deductible are no longer deductible in insurance. In other words, performing any kind of dental treatment, as simple as it may seem, it can be very complicated due to the treatment prices.
This makes it more advisable to start a dental treatment in Mexico, as it can be done from start to finish, without the worry of not having enough money. Some data estimate that Americans and Canadians can save up to 70% of dental work costs when it comes to Mexico.
High quality treatments
Another reason why Mexico has become the number one country in dental tourism is because of the quality of its treatments. Whether for the placement of veneers, dental roots, dental implants Tijuana or any other treatment or service, the highest quality materials are always used.
The best quality in resins and porcelains are used, so that the patient can obtain quality dental care and with a long-term duration. Even some of the treatments have better quality in Mexico than in countries like the U.S. and Canada in terms of value-money.
The best treatments
Dentistry is a specialty in which the dentist seeks to give a better quality of life to the patient, helping him solve the problems he may have in his mouth. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of dentists who only care about profit, this makes them offer treatments that are not the best for the patient.
They may even offer treatments that, while may be temporarily helpful, will not solve any long-term problems and will subsequently need another dental treatment, more invasive and probably more expensive. To avoid these kinds of inconveniences, in Mexico the dental patient is asked for a series of studies, with which his case will be assessed and given a safer diagnosis.
The lateral skull x-ray is usually ordered before starting orthodontic treatment.
Technology is present
One of the main advantages of Tijuana being close to the United States is that the same technology as in the United States can be used, at a much lower cost. In other words, treatments like Invisalign that require new molds from time to time are cheaper.
3D technology makes treatments more specialized, but in the United States and Canada their use becomes quite expensive. Also, thanks to this type of technology you can have a more accurate diagnosis and know with certainty what treatment the patient should follow.
Wide variety of procedures
Within dentistry, a wide variety of procedures are performed to help the patient correct their oral health problems. Some of the most common procedures are:
Veneers: Veneers have become one of the simplest cosmetic treatments to cover small defects or dental imperfections.
Dental whitening: One of the most common cosmetic treatments within dentistry is teeth whitening. With the help of this procedure, teeth are given a lighter touch, making them look whiter and healthier.
Dental implants: it is a procedure that helps cover areas that have lost teeth, in this way better chewing is achieved. In addition to that, it also helps prevent the movement of other dental parts.
Root Canal: is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.
Although it is common for these types of treatments to be offered in dental clinics, the cost is often much higher in the United States than in Mexico.
High quality standards
One of the main recommendations that the American Dental Association usually gives tourists is to ensure high quality standards. A good dental clinic must have all the necessary permits to be able to work, it has to be clean and have the papers in order.
In addition, the staff must have all the certificates and permits required by the Mexican government to work. Before starting any type of treatment, it is important to verify that dentists are certified, only someone with professional cedula can perform any type of dental procedure.
A good tip that can help you choose a dental clinic is to verify the information on their website. Also, within the website you can see the services they offer and which are the certified doctors they work with.
