When you visit Dr. Ryan at North Creek Dental, you may not realize that he can tell many things about your general and oral health just by completing your exam and cleaning. Some of the indications of your overall health that are apparent to Dr. Ryan and our team include:

  • Thumb sucking as a child
  • Nail biting
  • Pregnancy
  • How often you floss
  • Whether you have an eating disorder, vitamin deficiency, or sinus infection
  • Indications of certain health conditions from the smell of your breath, such as a fishy smell indicating liver or kidney disease
  • If you drink too much soda
  • Whether you have diabetes, even if not yet diagnosed
  • If you consume too much alcohol

Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Ryan can determine whether you have oral cancer when you visit our Tinley Park, IL practice, as our team always completes oral cancer screens during preventive care exams. Your North Creek Dental team, like your primary care doctor, is eager to work with you to improve your long-term health.
