Preventing Dental Health Concerns in Naperville

In dentistry, having a dentist address decay and infection before they develop is the best way to protect your well-being. Dr. Kevin Ryan, DDS, PC offers preventive dental services. He acts proactively to make sure your smile stays healthy.


Preventive dental care begins with a basic dental exam. Dr. Ryan carefully looks at your smile to see the health of the teeth, gums, and other supporting tissues. If he discovers any concerns, like a small cavity, our dentist can immediately prescribe treatment, minimizing the impact the dental problem has on your teeth.

As part of your exam, Dr. Ryan uses a cone beam scanner. This device develops an accurate image of your oral health, including the quality of the jaw bone tissue. More accurate diagnoses are made possible as a result of this advanced technology.   

It is critical that you schedule regular dental visits twice a year, if not more often. Not only does this allow us to detect growing health concerns as they start to develop, but they also let you undergo a professional dental cleaning.


Your oral hygiene routine is designed to keep your teeth and gums free of plaque buildup. However, those habits alone are not always enough to stop oral bacteria from collecting.

The professional dental cleaning you get as part of your exam helps you stay healthy. Dr. Ryan removes any plaque that you may have missed while brushing and flossing. These treatments drastically reduce your risks of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
