This is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and has been linked to a number of other major health risks such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and pregnancy related complications such as low birth weight.
Depending on the type of periodontal disease, Dr. Eskow will recommend a treatment plan to address your condition and manage further infection or spread of disease.
Gum disease treatment options include:
- Scaling and root planing
- Local antibiotic therapy
- Gum grafts
- Osseous surgery

Gummy Smile Treatment
Do you want to correct the appearance of a gummy smile?
About The Gum Lift Procedure
A beautiful smile begins with healthy, beautiful gums. In addition to periodontal services that prevent, treat and maintain gum disease, we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of the gums and smile.
A gum lift, also known as crown lengthening, is a common cosmetic periodontal treatment used to improve the appearance of a “gummy smile”. By removing excess gum tissue, Dr. Eskow can make the teeth appear longer and reveal a broader, more even smile.
Dr. Eskow uses his artistic eye and surgical expertise to address the shape and symmetry of your gums. Using advanced technology such as laser dentistry, Dr. Eskow can quickly and painlessly reshape the gums. Most patients resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure without any pain or medications.
Receding Gums Treatment
Receding gums are often an indication of gum disease. Addressing the root cause of receding gums is key to restoring health and balance to your smile. We offer a full range of non-invasive solutions to correct receding gums.
Gum Grafting Techniques
Dr. Eskow can perform traditional gum grafting techniques to improve the appearance of the teeth and gums. He uses grafted gum tissue, usually from the roof of the mouth, to cover exposed tooth roots and improve the appearance of receding gums.
