At just under 1 month old this baby was by far the youngest patient I had ever seen. Although the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first dental exam be either when the first primary tooth erupts or by one year of age, even in the United States I rarely saw children under the age of 4. I'll be honest I can treat fractures, infections, root canals, but this baby really intimidates me!
From the expression on the babies face you can tell he was not happy but not because he was in pain thankfully. He was not happy to have me prying around inside his mouth! You can see in the above picture (if you look closely) bilateral solitary white lesions attached to the gingiva on his lower ridge. Mom said he was breast feeding normally and growing as expected.
