During your routine exam, your dentist will inspect your mouth, paying special attention to the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw. You may discuss any issues you have been having, like toothaches, with your dentist at this time.

If it has been over a year since your last set of x-rays, or you have a condition like advanced periodontal disease, your dentist may take x-rays during your exam to get a better picture of the health of your tooth roots and jaw.

Your dentist may recommend treatments depending on what the dental exam turns up. And if time allows, you also have a dental cleaning.
