Do you suffer from swollen, soft or irritated gums? Do your gums seem more tender than usual? If you are having problems like bleeding, irregular coloring or problematic gums, you may have the early signs of gingivitis. Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease, but when treated early and effectively gingivitis can be reversed.

Gingivitis sounds like a scary word but roughly 90 percent of U.S. adults have some form of this common gum problem. Knowledgeable dentists like Dr. Sarah Roberts will detect early signs of gum disease at your regularly scheduled dental checkups. Alongside professional dental cleanings, gingivitis can be prevented with daily brushing and flossing.

It is important to treat signs of gingivitis early so it does not develop and become more problematic. Due to the hectic schedules of overtired Americans, daily oral hygiene habits sometimes slip to the wayside. The number of cases of gingivitis and more serious periodontal disease has increased in recent years even with the advancements in oral hygiene products like antimicrobial toothpaste and mouthwashes. Untreated gingivitis can turn into advanced gum disease or periodontitis. Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss for American dental patients.

For effective management of your gingivitis or other periodontal problems, seek help from a dentist who specializes in periodontal treatments and periodontal therapy. Your dentist may recommend periodontal deep cleaning, medications or oral surgery. Qualified dentists like Dr. Sarah Roberts at Crabapple Dental offer periodontal treatments right in their dental office. There is no need to go to a specialist if you find the right dentist. If you care about maintaining a healthy mouth and beautiful smile be sure to look for the signs of problematic gums and seek the help of a qualified dentist if problems arise.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
