When is orthodontic treatment needed?
Through a general evaluation your dentist can determine whether or not you need orthodontic treatment. If necessary, he or she will recommend you to see an orthodontist, or in any case, will proceed with the appropriate treatment if he or she specializes in the area.
In other words, only your dentist or professional orthodontist can determine if you need orthodontic treatment, because through the corresponding study it is possible to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
However, orthodontics is generally recommended for patients with dental malocclusion problems, since this hinders chewing, speech and proper dental cleaning.
In the long term, this leads to more serious dental diseases, such as gingivitis, periodontitis, enamel wear and partial or total loss of teeth.
Malocclusions can be inherited or be the result of untreated dental disease and can affect the correct anchorage of the jaw and its functionality. If this is your case, contact SOFDental to evaluate the problem.

Orthodontics in Tijuana
Orthodontics is the dental specialty in charge of correcting teeth and jaws that, for various reasons, are incorrectly positioned in our mouth.
As this condition can lead to malocclusion, caries, early tooth loss and severe periodontal disease, corrective treatment is able to mitigate risks and improve overall health.
Remember that poorly positioned teeth, in addition to being difficult to clean on a daily basis, can put unnecessary stress on the chewing muscles, causing headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain.
For this reason, orthodontic treatment in Tijuana has evolved to offer individualized solutions through the integration of a specialized professional service, capable of improving the economic offer and reducing the waiting time in favor of the patient.
Problems and conditions treated with orthodontics
In addition to malocclusion, there are many dental conditions that can be treated with orthodontics. The following are the best known:
- Open bite
- Shifted midline
In addition, it is important to know that orthodontics can also be used to solve problems related to sleep apnea, breathing, speech and jaw articulation.
How does orthodontic treatment work?
Different types of technologies are implemented for corrective treatment. Each of them allows moving the teeth and training the muscles in order to stimulate the jaw and correct alterations in dental development.
The applied engineering consists of fixed and removable appliances, which exert slight pressure on the teeth and bones to achieve the corresponding occlusal normalization.
This type of treatment is also known as “dental braces in Tijuana“, but it is worth mentioning that this is not a correct term.
Today there is a wide variety of removable appliances, so each type is designed to correct one or more specific defects. Because they are removable, the appliances can be easily put on and taken off for prompt maintenance and cleaning.
Its action is based on applying controlled pressure on the teeth to be moved, but without involving or exerting unnecessary force on the corresponding muscles.
Therefore, removable appliances are recommended in cases of crossbite and mild crowding.
Fixed appliances (brackets)
Orthodontic treatment with breakeats is used to correct conditions of greater severity, since its action allows each of the teeth arranged in any direction to be moved individually.
Therefore, these instruments are used to generate systematized movements on teeth and muscles. Always in order to achieve proper dental alignment and occlusion.
Braces in Tijuana
Because braces in Tijuana are less expensive than in the USA, it is possible to find individualized solutions that maximize esthetics and functionality for the duration of treatment.
Today, we are not only talking about metal brackets, but also ceramic brackets. They can be placed on the external or internal side of the dental piece.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that treatment with braces includes a regular oral hygiene program, since both maintenance and oral cleaning tend to become complicated during the process.
Therefore, at SOFDental we apply a specialized educational program that seeks to educate and encourage the patient to improve their hygiene, guaranteeing the success of the treatment and extending the useful life of the dental pieces.
