Periodontal disease affects three out of four adults and is caused by bacterial plaque build-up that infects the periodontal (gum) tissues. This infection can destroy the tissue and bone that supports the teeth, making periodontal disease the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in America. Dr. Hans Guter is pleased to offer individualized treatment plans to eliminate infection of the gums and root surfaces. An appropriate plan will be chosen by our experienced dentist and hygienist. We will perform the treatments to help eliminate infection, make recommendations to help you more effectively clean your teeth daily, and guide you to maintaining oral health. Call The Guter Center for Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to schedule an appointment if you suffer from gum disease in Circleville, Ohio.
