Your implant represents a significant investment both in terms of time, treatment, and cost. You want to preserve and maintain that investment so you may enjoy your implant(s) for years to come.
The American Board of Periodontics guidelines on implant periodontal maintenance states that “Patients with implants should be evaluated at regular intervals to monitor their peri-implant status, the condition of implant-supported prostheses, and plaque control.”The board goes on to say “The evidence suggests that plaque control is as critically important for the maintenance of dental implants as for natural teeth. Consequently, it appears that effective implant oral hygiene techniques may include interdental brushes, dental floss, dental tape, and floss ribbons, as well as topical chemotherapeutic agents. Professional maintenance using plastic instruments, air-powered abrasives, as well as polishing with a rubber cup and fine abrasive, also may be indicated.”
Dr. David has a wonderful chairside manner, just as his father did when I saw him many years ago. He made me feel very comfortable.
I would highly recommend Dr. Engen and his office staff to anyone whose child was apprehensive about having braces. Other than the high level of professionalism, I appreciate the down-play of cutsie-pie gimmicks for kids. He thoroughly explained everything to us right from the start.
Because of the internet information provided about his background and education, I feel I have a top level, up-to-date professional taking care of me.
State of the art care! I like the “get it right” attitude. After eight years I have not had one negative experience.

Dr. Engen was great! He explained my diagnosis and the procedure required thoroughly. I was even asked if I liked the colors of paint for the office.
