It is recommended to take your child for their first visit to the dentist at the age of approximately six months, or at the moment when the first tooth has erupted. The first visit of a child to the dentist is intended for parents, because the dentist will explain how to take care of the infant’s teeth, as well as discuss how the infant’s food affects the health of the teeth and oral cavity.

At the age of one year and one year and a half During this period, the dentist can see so-called nursing bottle caries (if the child has at least one tooth with caries, removed or filled tooth by the age of 71 months) and prevent it promptly. The most common causes of caries include long-term or even continuous feeding of a child at night with breast milk or from a bottle. The first teeth that start to decay are the front teeth of the upper jaw from the inside; therefore, parents must regularly review the teeth from all sides. It is recommended to preventively visit the dentist two times per year.

At the age of two and two and a half At this age the child must be taken to the dentist preventively, but visits to the dental hygienist must also be commenced - when a full deciduous teeth occlusion develops, the child is ready to meet another specialist of dental health - dental hygienist.

At the age of three At this age most children have complete deciduous occlusion - all deciduous teeth have erupted - a total of 20 teeth. At the moment when all deciduous teeth are present in the mouth, the dentist can determine whether a child has any occlusion problem during an examination of the teeth. The faster occlusion problems are detected, the faster the dentist can determine when correction of occlusion must be commenced and refer the patient to the orthodontist.


The first consultation of a child with an orthodontist is recommended at the time when the replacement of deciduous teeth with permanent teeth begins, which usually occurs at the age of 5-6.

During the consultation, the orthodontist will check the condition of the teeth and occlusion of the child and compliance thereof with the age of the child, as well as evaluate the position of the lips and tongue and the type of breathing, because in the event of disorders, these factors can cause incorrect occlusion.

If required, an X-Ray examination of the teeth will be prescribed by the orthodontist to evaluate the position and development of the dental buds of the permanent teeth in the bone.


It is very important to take the child to the dentist for their first examination in order to meet the specialist, instead of to receive acute therapy for a painful tooth. The first visit must be exciting and fun. The parents must explain to the child what is going to happen in the dentist’s office. If the parents themselves are afraid of the dentist, they should not transmit these negative sensations to their child. Parental support during the first visits will provide a positive experience for the child on the next visits as well.

It is recommended to watch informative material on teeth, dental care, etc. together with the child. For instance, the parents may use the materials available on the website www.tirizobi.lv, including the animation film „Man ir tīri zobi” (“I have clean teeth”). Role plays can also be fun: dentist - patient. Allow the child to say what they are afraid of during these visits. Telling the child “They will do nothing to you”, “It will not be painful” and similar promises are a big mistake. Examination of the tooth is an action, therefore - they will do something. Small children often cannot tell the difference between pressure and pain, therefore, even a strong touch can be perceived as pain. Allow the child to take their favourite toy with them; a soft toy or a blanket that makes them feel safe. Explain the words that they could hear during the visit, for instance, caries, gums, X-Ray, etc. Do not tell the child about your negative childhood experiences from visiting a dentist.

Take special care, when selecting your words! Do not transmit your fear of the dentist to your child!


The first visit must be informative and as short as possible; complex manipulations should be avoided.
The child must be introduced to the dentists in a friendly environment, without unpleasant treatment, removal of teeth, etc.
It is best to choose a time when the child is alert and well rested, not tired or sleepy.

Depending on the age of the child and their comfort level, parents could be asked to hold the child on their lap or to wait in the waiting room so that the dentist and the child can establish better contact.

During the visit, the dentist will review the oral cavity of the child, check their teeth, status of the gums and occlusion. The dentist will also provide advice on dental care, prevention of caries and answer the questions that the parents are interested in. You can discuss with your dentist how to best prevent teeth decay, improve oral hygiene, prevent adverse habits of a child, for instance, sucking on their fingers, and discuss how to reduce bad food habits, etc.

Meanwhile, during a visit to the dental hygienist, the teeth of a child will be cleaned and fluoride-containing agents will be applied for the prevention of caries. The procedures performed by the hygienist can be considered a way of getting the child used not to being afraid of manipulations that are performed by the dentist.

Some children need several visits to a dental hygienist to get ready for the visit with the dentist and repair of their teeth.

Remember that parents are responsible for the oral health of their children. To ensure that a child feels better, they need to receive explanations that the dentist is a friend, who can help to preserve the health of the teeth. A visit to the dentist must not be used to scare a child!
