Periodontal Plastic Surgery: Before and After

Dr. Roy and Dr. Adam Eskow of Bethesda Dental Implant Center are both highly trained dentists and periodontists. Both have completed extensive training and fellowships in periodontics. Both are also current faculty members at the University of Maryland Dental School in the department of periodontics.

Periodontics, the treatment of gum disease and gum related dental problems, often involves the reshaping of the gums to address a gummy smile, uneven gum line or to remove diseased tissue. Dr. Eskow offer periodontal plastic surgery in their Bethesda dentist office. After a thorough exam, they can recommend a personalized plan of treatment designed to address a patient’s personal goals and any dental health issues that need to be corrected. Periodontics can play an important role in helping to maintain oral health by keeping the gums healthy so that they can support the teeth.

Gum surgeries can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of a patient’s smile, sometimes providing a smile makeover that shows off their natural teeth.
