Preventative Dental Care:
West Linn Dental Checkups and Cleanings

Recent research has unveiled compelling connections between oral health and various chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. This evidence shifts the perspective on oral care, highlighting its significance not just for teeth and gums but for overall well-being.

While consistent brushing and flossing remain fundamental to oral hygiene, regular dental visits to Dr. Dugger and our skilled team of dental hygienists at Dugger Dentistry, your trusted West Linn dentist, are equally crucial for long-term oral health. During examinations, Dr. Dugger can detect early signs of decay and gum disease, enabling prompt intervention while conditions are manageable. Professional cleanings performed by our hygienists target plaque buildup, known as tartar, which, if left untreated, can contribute to the onset of decay and gum issues.

Digital X-rays

Utilizing digital x-rays, West Linn dentist, Dr. Dugger, gains comprehensive insight into each patient's oral health needs while minimizing exposure to radiation compared to traditional x-rays. This technology empowers him to craft personalized treatment plans tailored to address each patient's specific requirements. At Dugger Dentistry, we recognize and respect that every patient possesses distinct dental needs, and we are dedicated to providing the attentive care you deserve.

Ensuring optimal oral health is no longer optional—it's essential. Neglecting proper oral hygiene can have serious long-term repercussions on your overall well-being. Therefore, prioritizing quality oral care is imperative for safeguarding your health in the years to come.
