Dental Care and Dental Emergencies

Dental care

Examination and control

Your first visit

A dental examination is carried out, and a treatment plan is then drawn up. Our dentist will review your medical and dental history and conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, bite, gums, and jaw. The examination may also include x-rays and oral cancer screening if necessary. Your dentist will then draw up a personalised treatment plan.

Why consult?

A dental check-up is essential to maintain good oral health and to detect any dental problems. This routine check-up should be carried out regularly to prevent tooth and gum disease. It allows your dentist to treat any problems at an early stage, or better still, to prevent any problems from developing in the first place. If problems are left untreated, they may become more difficult to treat over time. The generally accepted interval between two visits to the dentist is between 6 and 12 months. This frequency may vary, depending on a number of factors, including age, oral history and risk factors (diet, smoking, etc.).

Dental Scaling

Dental cleaning

Scaling is a dental treatment that consists of removing tartar from the teeth. Tartar is actually an accumulation of dental plaque, a whitish component made up of salivary proteins, food remains and bacteria. Tartar can only be removed by a dental professional. There are, however, various methods of removing tartar: 

  • Ultrasonic scaling: consists of using a metal or ceramic tip that vibrates at high frequency on areas with tartar to loosen it.
  • Manual descaling: this is carried out manually, using instruments, when there is no significant scale build-up.
  • Descaling using an aeropolisher: consists of propelling a jet of water made up of prophylactic powder. This powder contains fine particles of calcium carbonate or glycine. The water is propelled directly onto the teeth. It is completely painless for the patient and also removes discoloured stains from the teeth.

Our dentist will take these different methods into account and choose the one best suited to your situation. What's more, if necessary, she can combine all these methods to achieve the best results.


We recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft toothbrush. Brush your teeth and gums using the modified bass technique. Flossing is also recommended to remove food debris and bacteria hiding between the teeth. It's also important to brush the tongue to eliminate bacteria that can cause bad breath.The price of scaling in Morocco varies according to the patient and the technique used.

Dental Caries

Dental Caries

Tooth decay is a decayed area of your teeth that becomes tiny openings or holes.
Our dentist can usually detect tooth decay by :

  • Ask questions about dental pain and sensitivity.
  • Probe your teeth with dental instruments to check for soft areas.
  • Look at dental X-rays.

Regular check-ups are recommended to detect cavities and other dental problems before they lead to more serious problems. The earlier dental treatment is carried out, the better your chances of reversing and halting the progression of tooth decay.

Treatment options include:

  • A fluoride treatment will be offered by our dentist. This is designed to reverse the progression of tooth decay and restore tooth structure.
  • A dental filling: we use composite fillings (natural colour) to repair a damaged tooth, restoring its function, shape and normal colour. 

For a longer-lasting result, we recommend an inlay/onlay/overlay.


The tooth is made up of two parts, dentin (the inner part) and enamel (the hard part). In the centre of the tooth are the blood vessels and the nerve. They are located in a tiny canal that is the living part of the tooth. When the nerve is dead or too diseased, the pain becomes unbearable (toothache). Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, involves emptying, cleaning, sterilising and sealing the canal or canals in the tooth. In this way, the patient's dead tooth can be preserved. When the destruction is significant, a crown is recommended.

Dental Extraction

Dental Extraction

When a tooth is seriously decayed and diseased, and cannot be restored, extraction is necessary. This eliminates bacteria and improves oral health.
Having a tooth pulled can leave a gap that allows other teeth to move. If possible, consider getting a dental bridge or dental implant to replace the missing tooth.

Dental emergencies

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and are most often caused by tooth decay that has affected the nerve of the tooth, so you will have a toothache: the pain can be very sharp and is not relieved by any painkillers. The only way to stop this pain is with dental treatment provided by the dentist. Under local anaesthetic, our dentist will open the dental pulp (the cavity where the nerve is located) and the relief will be immediate.It may also be caused by an abscess, fracture or expulsion of the tooth (following a fall, for example).If you have a dental emergency, we invite you to contact the Montblanc Dental Center in Marrakech as soon as possible.
