Gingivitis acuta catarrhali

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Saturday, 22 December, 2007 with 0 comments

Etiology - exogenous factors or whole-organism diseases.

Pathologic anatomy - a diffuse soaking of the gingival tissue by lymphocytes and polynuclear leukocytes infiltrate.

Clinical picture - both apposing and spontaneous pain. Bleeding caused by touching, or exudation sometimes appear; regional lymph nodes take part in the process.

Therapy - adjusted oral hygiene, removal of exogenous causes, mouth washing with disinfectant and astringent solutions. If not cured, this disease tends to become chronic.
