Prophylaxis is a dental hygiene procedure whose main objective is to clean the tooth surfaces by removing tartar. Dental cleaning is the removal of plaque, with ultrasound or other electromechanical instrument. It is important to keep regular checks to achieve a healthy mouth and a healthy smile. Visiting your dentist every six months and making the correct brushing techniques with a good toothbrush (soft and small head). The toothpastes are also of great help as they allow us to maintain fresh breath and a healthy tooth discoloration. Periodontal disease has recently been linked with other diseases that do not affect the mouth.


Space maintainers are appliances that fit your child's mouth to maintain the space. They do this by holding open the empty space & this treatment is much more affordable. A concept to keep in mind when placing maintainer is the time that has elapsed since the tooth was lost.


The procedures performed by the dentist with different purposes. The procedures that patients appreciate most are those that are intended to treat the condition and relieve patients of pain and discomfort. The most important work is performed by dentists to prevent patients come to suffer dental procedures and conditions of debilitating disease. The two most important preventive measures are dental cleaning and fluoride treatment. Both are routine procedures that can be applied in children and adults to preserve the health of the oral cavity. The fluoride treatments or therapies can be performed in children and adults. It can be prescribed to patients who have white spots on teeth. The white spots are areas of demineralization, and the dose of fluoride a uniform distribution of minerals will be guaranteed, so the white spots will fade. It can be prescribed to orthodontic patients. The presence of braces in the mouth makes teeth more susceptible to decay. Appliances often trap bits of food, and when not cleaned properly promote the growth of bacteria in the mouth. The prescription fluoride strengthen the teeth. Dentists can apply fluoride in several ways. In most cases it applied in gel form, which requires the use of a mouth tray. The tray is filled with gel and left in the mouth for 5 minutes to allow the tooth to absorb fluoride. It is also available in the form of varnish and applied as a paint.
