The Infant Dental Exam Process

Discuss health history

First, Dr. Marion will ask about your child’s dental health history and their overall health history. He will usually ask about your dental health and overall health history, as well. Some dental health issues like thin enamel are genetic, so discussing your own history can help him provide more informed dental care for your infant.

Next, Dr. Marion will examine your child’s gums, as well as any of their teeth that have erupted. If your child has a lot of their teeth, Dr. Marion may also gently clean their teeth and gums. You will sit in one of our dentist’s chairs and hold your child on your lap during their infant dental exam.

Care recommendations

After he has discussed their oral health history and examined their mouth, Dr. Marion will provide any care recommendations that he thinks may help your child’s mouth stay healthy. This is also a good time for you to ask any questions you may have about your child’s dental health, and how to keep their smile healthy.
