What makes a dental group or a dental clinic great? Well, it’s not only the amount of effort that is put into each treatment, or the amount of vision to expand their reach to new patients – a great dental clinic is the one that offers different specialists in a wide array of dental specialties.
Patient care is a must and should always be the number one objective, but to truly reach the full potential of high-quality dental care, a dental clinic must have a team of dentists that can carry out different procedures and excel at them. For example, having a maxillofacial surgeon and a periodontist specialist work together for a patient’s full mouth makeover, or having an endodontist perform a root canal.
Having different specialists dedicate their time and efforts to each of their fields will not only put a patient’s health in great hands, assuring that the number of procedure-related complications will decrease, and increase the chances for greater, more effective results.
In this blog, we’ll list a number of vital factors for you to take into consideration when picking a dental clinic.
Things you should consider before you choose
Their number of specialists
As we stated before, a dental clinic or dentist in Mexico that takes their patient’s well-being seriously will always have a team of different specialists ready to tackle each issue that may come out.
Some of the specialties that you’ll find in most clinics are:
· Maxillofacial surgery,
Certain procedures will rely on the intervention of professionals in different fields – that way, each step will be carefully carried out to maximize the quality with which it is performed.
About each specialty
Each of the aforementioned specialties serves a purpose – some of which will be shown in this part of the blog.
Diagnostics – which specializes in identifying any oral complications and diseases. With the use of this discipline, dentists will be able to point out each of the issues that the patient may present and, along with a specialist in another area, will design and craft an exact treatment plan to follow.
A diagnosis is a base step to any dental procedure – without a proper diagnosis, there would be no way to create a plan or advance.
Maxillofacial surgery – this type of surgery aims to correct, fix and treat any diseases and problems in your jaw, face and mouth. The areas that this type of surgery usually treats are the tissues and bones in the lower face region, as well as the teeth themselves.
Maxillofacial surgery is one of the most complex processes in dentistry, as it can treat a wide variety of problems. This type of surgery is used on patients who want to get dental implants, as any maxillofacial surgeon can extract teeth, treat oral diseases, and do other things that are required before the installation of dental implants.
This kind of surgery is one of the most used in cosmetic dentistry, too.
Periodontist specialists diagnose, prevent and treat gum-inflammatory diseases. This disease attacks the gums and the structures that support the teeth. They can repair and maintain dental implants, too.
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that works along with the diagnostic specialty – it maintains oral function, preserves appearance and aesthetics, and treats patients who show signs of conditions derived from damaged and missing teeth.
Endodontists treat damaged, interior tooth tissue in precise, complex ways. They’re the specialists that will do what’s possible to preserve and repair your natural tooth.
Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty that helps patients improve their smiles with the use of dental implants, veneers, crowns, and any other treatment that can be performed by any professional in the aforementioned areas.
Anesthesiologists evaluate and supervise patients that are going to receive anesthesia. They’ll determine the best way to administer the anesthesia, as well as how much.
In order to be able to perform any dental treatment, a dental clinic has to be equipped with the right pieces of technology.
Some of the best technological tools available in the market right now are:
· 3D Printer DIO PROBO – a 3D printer that is used in the creation of various dental prostheses such as crowns,
· CAD/CAM hardware and software – which stands for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing. Due to how exact most procedures have to be, technological assistance is of great help for dentists. It helps them save time, and gives them enough resources to focus on performing the best that they can do,
· Endodontic microscope – such as the CJ-Optik Flexion Advanced – which assists and helps dentists perform endodontic procedures with pinpoint precision.
A dental clinic that cares will always try to have the best tools within reach to give their patients the care that they deserve. Having better tools available for the dentists to use will make both the patients’ and dentists’ experience better and smoother.
Also, a dental clinic that has an on-site lab will speed a lot of processes up by eliminating the need of having a 3rd party lab intervene. By being able to craft the needed materials (such as veneers and crowns) and analyze results faster, dentists will be able to manage their times and operations better than before.
The prices & locations
Mexico is widely regarded as one of the best international destinations for tourists who want to spend a nice, tropical vacation or get treated. Doesn’t matter if it’s dental care or medical care, anybody will find a treatment to suit their specific needs.
Los Algodones Mexico, also known as Molar City, is perhaps the most popular international destination for dental care, hence the name.
Playa Del Carmen, located in the Mexican Riviera, offers gorgeous beaches and different recreational activities for tourists. It’s the perfect place for those patients who want to relax and take care of themselves at the same time.
However, it doesn’t mean that the prices will be excessive just because they’re tourist destinations. You may save up to 70% on dental care in Mexico when compared to the U.S. and other places.
Traveling to Mexico
Crossing the border
We’ve created a video showing the border checkpoint from Los Algodones – it’s a small, easy checkpoint to go through, both from the United States to Mexico and vice versa. Due to how close it is to the Arizona border, Los Algodones is a strategic point for medical tourists.
Playa Del Carmen is located in the Mexican Riviera, in the southern region of Mexico. This destination is a focus point for both normal tourists and medical tourists alike.
All of our three locations (2 in Los Algodones and 1 in Playa del Carmen) are fully equipped with the latest dental technology available, as well as a staff of trained dentists with both international and national accreditations.
