Preventive Care

Periodontal disease is often painless and results in the loss of bone supporting your teeth. Most tooth loss in adults is caused by this destructive disease. Prevention of gum disease involves good daily brushing habits, treatment intervention and regular professional cleaning appointments – usually every 3-6 months.


In an effort to increase the longevity of your teeth, interventive services may be recommended. Conservative nonsurgical approaches are utilized for most teeth. However surgical therapy may be indicated if other options are deemed inadequate in an effort to help you retain your teeth.

Cosmetic Periodontics

Our office is at the forefront in addressing concerns that you may have about your smile. Dr. Engert has lectured on enhancing esthetics. While using your own gingival gum donor options offer predictable results, we do offer alternative donor options including using alloderm and other materials. We are very familiar with pin, buttonhole, tunnel type surgery.

We make every attempt to provide Minimally Invasive surgery while minimizing your down time.

Comfort and Safety

Many people feel anxious about a visit to the dentist. It is our goal to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We will explain and review what we are doing at every visit. Our office has modern equipment, medications and stereo headphones – to help you feel at ease. All instruments are heat sterilized or disposable. We undergo weekly testing to assure the integrity of our sterilization system.
