One of the most demanded treatments in dentistry is professional dental cleaning or dental prophylaxis. Dental prophylaxis is a procedure that fulfills an important preventive function, relevant for the prevention of some dental diseases.


In general, dental cleaning involves removing tartar and stains that are on the teeth or under the gums. Only an accredited professional, such as a dentist or dental hygienist, can perform this procedure that takes between 30 and 40 minutes. It is important to go to an expert because if cleaning is done incorrectly, it can generate serious oral health problems.


Anyone can undergo professional dental cleaning as long as they do not have serious gum disease such as chronic periodontitis or pyorrhea. For these diseases, a complete periodontal treatment is required.


Dental cleanings are critical to maintaining dental and gum health. Brushing your teeth, flossing and using mouthwash is important but visiting the dentist regularly is also critical.



In cosmetic dentistry, tooth whitening is an aesthetic dental treatment that manages to reduce several shades the original color of the teeth, leaving the teeth brighter and whiter.


Teeth whitening can be done in the office or at home, although it is not possible to buy the same treatments (especially in concentrations of the active principles) for personal use. However, some dentists warn of possible damage to dental pieces if they are used in high concentration without the prescription or follow-up of a dentist.


Teeth whitening eliminates most of the stains produced by drugs such as tetracyclines or extrinsic causes such as tea, coffee and other infusions, cigarettes and red wine, among other substances and foods. However, not all dental blemishes or blemishes can be removed or improved through tooth whitening and may require other types of cosmetic dental treatments such as the use of porcelain veneers or covers.



A dental implant is a component of titanium (such as the root of a tooth) that is located by surgery on the jaw below the gum, which allows the dentist to embed the replacement tooth or bridge in the area. Implants are not removed like dentures. Dental implants are also beneficial for general oral health as it is not necessary to attach them to another tooth, such as bridges.

Specific oral care for IMPLANTS


If you are thinking about an implant, you should have healthy gums and a suitable bone to support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft and you can not hold the implant, you can ask for a bone graft. If you do not have enough bone in your upper jaw or your sinuses are too close to your jaw, you may ask to have your breast lifted.



If a tooth is broken or your tooth is broken, your dentist tries to fix it with a filling, crown, or other dental treatment. But when the tooth is too decayed to repair it, it may need to be removed – or removed – from the hole in the bone.



There are two types of extractions:


Simple Extraction – This procedure is performed on the teeth that can be seen. To perform a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. The dentist then uses forceps to remove the tooth.


Surgical removal – This is a more complex procedure, which is used when a tooth breaks in the gums or is not born. The surgeon will make a small incision in the gum to surgically remove the affected tooth or wisdom wheel.



Maxillofacial Surgery is a branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of diseases of the soft tissues of the oral cavity and of the bony structures of the maxillofacial area. It covers surgical medical treatment that includes diagnosis, surgery and treatments related to diseases and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, face, head and neck.


A Maxillofacial Surgeon deals with reconstruction of facial fractures caused by trauma, and orthognathic surgery to correct craniofacial deformities such as vertical and horizontal maxillary and jaw increases. Perform reconstruction of patients with cleft lip and palate, as well as the sequelae of said condition.


The main treatments performed by a Maxillofacial Surgeon are oral surgery, which involves the surgical extraction of retained dental organs (the most common being third molars or “wisdom teeth”), lesions and tumors of the bones and soft tissues of the cavity oral. As well as the treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction characterized by constant pain in the region anterior to the ear which increases during mastication.
