Highly skilled periodontist Dr. Adam Eskow is one of the first Washington DC area dentists to offer the Chao Lunchtime Gum Lift.

Dr. Eskow performs the innovative Pinhole Gum rejuvenation treatment in his dentist office convenient to patients in the Maryland and Washington DC metro area, including Chevy Chase, Rockville and Potomac. Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure has revolutionized the way dentists treat gum recession, making the the process minimally invasive with little to no downtime. Developed by Dr. John Chao, the Pinhole Gum rejuvenation treatment can repair receding gums without invasive surgery. This microsurgical treatment option for receding gums uses a technique that leaves no incisions or sutures. By inserting a special instrument with a “pinhole” incision in the gum, Dr. Eskow is able to reposition the gums for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

The pinhole technique is quickly becoming the ideal solution for gum recession over traditional gum grafting. Gum grafting surgery requires removal of soft tissue from the roof of the mouth that will then be grafted onto the gums. A more invasive restorative dental procedure, gum grafting requires longer downtime. In more serious cases of gum recession, gum grafting may still be necessary. Dr. Eskow will consult with each patient and determine the best treatment option for your individual dental health concerns and aesthetic goals. Dr. Esko always looks for the most conservative treatment option for you that will offer you your ideal results.
