Dental Exam
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 you may have.

A. The first thing your dentist will check during the exam is your face and neck. Checking visually, your dentist will look for any abnormalities, such as lumps, bumps or swelling.

During this part of the check up your dentist will be looking for any abnormalities in the soft tissue, such as discolorations or ulcers on your lips, gums, tongue, palate and cheeks. Your dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening and will check your bite and your jaw joint for any problems.

C. Next your dentist will check your gums and jawbone, as they are the foundation for your teeth. Your dentist will check them for any signs of gingivitis, gum disease and bone disease.

D. Checking your teeth comes next. Your dentist will be checking them for cavities and other problems. Finally, your dentist will be sure to look specifically at any areas where you may have symptoms or concerns.


X-rays
In most cases a clinical exam by itself is not sufficient to completely diagnose all potential problems with your mouth. In fact, the majority of problems with your teeth and the jawbone are not visible to the naked eye. That is why x-rays play a key role in allowing a better, and more accurate look at what is really going on inside your mouth and below your teeth and gums. By using x-rays your dentist can check for any bone loss and determine the severity of the gum disease.

In addition to revealing any problems that were not visible during the clinical exam these initial x-rays will also provide your dentist with a benchmark with which to compare against during your future visits.

The Proof is in Our Patients
I was nervous going to the dentist but actually had a great experience there. The hygienist Kathy was so sweet and totally made me feel at ease and so was the doctor. I am not more comfortable to go back and do not need to be so nervous anymore because I feel like I’m in good hands the staff is friendly and warm.

Best dentists I’ve taken my family to. They are very skilled and go the extra mile for every single patient. They definitely know how to make it an easy experience on the kids too. Each kid says, “I had a good time,” at the dentist... Very comforting to have considering some of the horror stories we have experienced with other local dentists.

My kiddos have been going to see Dr. Kim for about 6 years now. Always great service and experiences. It also helps that there is free wifi, coffee and lemon flavored water 🙂

Always courteous and friendly staff. The wait time getting into the Dentist is never long. The dentist will take the time to discuss what is going to be done. Also, they will help you relax if nervous about seeing the Dentist.
