Any suggestions about oral peripheral examinations if you know there could be potential structural issues?


Regarding oral peripheral examinations, I have relied on previously reported information. Depending on the age of the student, there should be a case history. If there is nothing noted or you want to do a more in depth examination, I would ask an adult for assistance. I would also ask them to model the movement face to face (tongue clicking like a horse; licking upper/lower lips; tongue in cheek like there is food stuck). It would be helpful for the adult to take a pic/video (with their phone) of the movement & have it texted/emailed to you.
