Returning to Tijuana for Dental Implants Soon

29 Dec

I’m going to be returning to Tijuana for dental implants soon. I have been there so many times now, you’d think I wouldn’t think twice about it. But I still get nervous thinking about dental implants. Just the thought of drilling a metal screw into my head seems wrong. I know it is for the best in the long run though, I’ve been dying to have this missing tooth replaced. I just want to get it over with. Apparently it takes several months to complete the entire process.

My dentist in Tijuana is retiring

18 Dec

To my disappointment, I recently learned that my favorite dentist in Tijuana is retiring. Dr Juan Rubio is retiring after over 30 years of practice! I am very saddened by this news. But he has informed me that his clinic will remain open. It is staffed by dentists that he hand picked for their skill. So I am happy because I can continue to use his clinic, but I just won’t get worked on directly by him. This is fine, seeing as I was after cared for by his other dentists.

Back in the states

I have finally got back home. It is nice to be back in the orderly, quiet neighborhood I call him. But I truly did enjoy myself in the bustling downtown area of Tijuana. I feel like getting my dental work there was a bit of an adventure, and now it’s over. I am glad I follow through with it! I am thrilled with how much I saved. I will always look back on my time with those Tijuana dentists fondly. There were so professional, and totally dispelled every concern I had!

Just got back

I just got back from Tijuana. All of my dental work is complete. I am not resting in my San Diego hotel. What a difference between the two countries. Nothing makes you appreciate your home more than being away from it for some time!

While it is great to be back home, I am glad I made the trek to Tijuana. My dental crowns look fantastic! There are so lifelike!

Dental Capital

15 Jun

Tijuana is one of the biggest dental capitols of the world. People from all over america travel here every year for cheap dental work. There aren’t many other places like it in the world.

The Tijuana and San Ysidro border crossing the busiest land crossing in the world. Every day, hundreds of thousands of humans cross this porous international boundary. Many people are just visiting family. But some are medical and dental tourists.

As soon as you enter Tijuana, you will see dental clinics all around you. There is a dental clinic literally 20 feet from the border! You don’t have to work far to find a qualified dentist. But you certainly should not just pick the first dentist you happen to stroll into.

It is wise to conduct a prudent amount of research before allowing a Mexican dentist into your mouth! If you can get references, that is probably your best bet. Also, if you know anyone that has done this before, there is no better advocate. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and family if they hoped over the border to get their pearly whites fixed.
