In maxillofacial surgery we are able to address the full spectrum of specialty (cancer, trauma, glands ...) while our dental specialists offer orthodontic treatments, dental aesthetics and the latest technology implants. We offer specialized medical care in a safe environment such as our hospital.

There are many patients with bruxism and problems on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Pain when biting or chewing, sounds or crackles when opening or closing the mouth and headache are some of the most common complaints and are treated holistically, offering not only treatment with splints but with other products such as rich plasma factors growth.

We also received many inquiries by deformities of the face, besides requiring a skilled surgeon, orthodontists and cosmetic dentists experts to achieve excellent results.

Finally many implants are in demand, and it is that lack of teeth remains an endemic problem in our country.
