This review article seeks to provide additional information on bacterial endocarditis and Buccomaxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology procedures, as well as the main microorganisms involved in this feat, risk factors, and conditions and antibiotic prophylaxis. A bibliographic review was carried out, where scientific articles were obtained from the PubMed, Cochrane, Virtual Health Library and Scielo databases. Studies were conducted from 2000 to 2018 and included studies from the period 2013 to 2018, according to the descriptors: Bacterial Endocarditis-Prevalence-Prophylaxis-Bacterial, as well as the association of the terms, searched in English, Spanish and Portuguese. A total of 189 studies were carried out to carry out the research and included 13 articles. Data were analyzed from descriptive statistics. Through information exported in these works, it can be concluded that the best way to prevent an infective endocarditis is to know the patient by means of a well-made anamnesis, where the patient's health history is well evaluated and thus to identify some risk, and antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended for all dental patients of imminent risk, as well as more invasive surgery and buccomaxillofacial procedures.
