New Patient Exam
Whether it’s called a clinical exam, a new patient exam or a routine checkup, a dental examination is a crucial part of your oral health care. It allows your general dentist to take inventory of your overall oral health and identify any potential problems that should be addressed.
Services are performed by a general dentist.
Because many potential problems cannot be diagnosed with the naked eye our general dentists employ X-rays to get a more accurate look at what is really going on inside your mouth and below your teeth and gums. They also allow us to check for bone loss and determine the severity of any gum disease that is present. Taking X-rays during your initial visit also provides a benchmark for us to compare against during future visits.
