Individual treatment steps will vary from patient to patient, and the detailed treatment process will be determined by each patient’s requirement and the state of his teeth. In choosing the perform the dental procedures in collaboration with Latvian clinics, the patient can primarily count on establishing a close relationship electronically, followed by a visit or several days or longer to Latvia. The length of time that the patient spends in Latvia will depend on the medical procedures planned and the treatment plan. Depending on the degree of complexity, endodontics is usually carried out over the course of 2 or 3 visits. The dental filling process usually takes place over the course of two visits.

How to choose your specialist?
It is important that the patient has good contact with the dentist. Dental clinics, our cluster cooperation partners, have received good client feedback both about high quality services, as well as the professionalism and attitude of the medical staff. If you are unsure which dentist to trust, we recommend a diagnostic visit, during which a specialist will assess the general state of oral health and suggest how to improve the health and visual appearance of teeth. After the first appointment, you can decide whether you want to continue visiting the particular dental institution. It’s a good idea to choose one specialist who monitors your oral health in the long-term, as this will allow your doctor to recommend solutions that are best for you in each situation.
How long does the result last?
Teeth whitening effect can last up to 2 years. The lifespan of dental fillings can vary – for example, the predicted lifespan of the classic silver fillings is 8–12 years, but they often last much longer. If properly maintained, beautiful composite material fillings can last up to 12 years. Glass ionomer fillings have a warranty of approximately 8 years. Ask your specialist for more details about the warranty for each procedure.

Yes, a full range of dentistry services is also available for children. First thing children need to know – dentists are not scary and that proper hygiene is important.
