A clinical exam is more commonly referred to as a routine check-up. A new patient exam lets your dentist essentially take inventory of the overall health of your mouth and teeth and diagnose any potential problems.
In most cases a clinical exam by itself is not sufficient to completely diagnose all potential problems. The majority of problems with your teeth are not visible to the naked eye. That’s why digital x-rays play a key role in allowing a more accurate look at what is going on inside your mouth and below your teeth and gums. Dentists use x-rays to check for cavities, bone loss and periodontal (gum) disease.
