This exam is referred to as a routine check up. In this checkup we examine the health of your mouth and teeth and inform you of any potential problems.
In most cases, a clinical exam by itself is not sufficient to diagnose all potential problems with your mouth. So, during your first visit, we will x-ray your mouth. This will give us a more accurate look at what is really going on inside your mouth, below your teeth and gums. We can check for any bone loss and determine the severity of any gum disease. This will allow us a benchmark to compare against your future visits.
