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.

Kim B.

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!!

Linda S.

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
