A descriptive cross-sectional study on the use of herbal medicine in odontology and the information level of professionals in this field about oral diseases treated with herbal remedies was conducted, taking into account that this treatment is a natural, effective and of low cost. The data obtained in this respect from interviews and surveys revealed that the plants more used by them as alternative medicine were guava, camomile and greater plantain, but they hardly knew the active ingredients of these natural products, and neither used others with scientific properties validated as curative of periodontopathies, so that it was recommended to extend the use of a greater number of herbal remedies to which odontologists and population in general have easy access.
