• gingiva
  • Generally all gingival diseases share common features such as signs and symptoms being restricted to gingiva, clinically detectable inflammation, and the potential for the gum tissues to return to a state of health once the cause is removed, without irreversible loss of attachment of the teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gingival infiltration associated with leukemia produces generalized swelling of gingiva that, clinically, mimics that of inflammatory origin. (jcda.ca)
  • 7 GINGIVAL SULCUS Gingival sulcus is the space or crevice surrounding the tooth and bounded by tooth on one side and epithelium lining the free end of marginal gingiva on the other side. (slideplayer.com)
  • fibrotic
  • Situations in which the chronic inflammatory gingival enlargement include significant fibrotic components that do not respond to and undergo shrinkage when exposed to scaling and root planing are treated with surgical removal of the excess tissue, most often with a procedure known as gingivectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • etiology
  • Untreated conditions can result in severe pain, localized, and systemic infections and result in partial or complete loss of teeth.The etiology and the contributing factors to these diseases are discussed in detail. (coursera.org)
  • tissue
  • These are not precise descriptions of gingival enlargement because these terms are strictly histologic diagnoses, and such diagnoses require microscopic analysis of a tissue sample. (wikipedia.org)
  • As these identifications obviously cannot be performed with a clinical examination and evaluation of the tissue, the term gingival enlargement is more properly applied. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesion
  • Linear gingival erythema is classified as a candida-associated lesion, that is to say Candida species are involved, and in some cases the lesion responds to antifungal therapy, but it is thought that other factors exist, such as oral hygiene and human herpesviruses. (wikipedia.org)
  • periodontitis
  • In 1993 at the 1st European Workshop in Periodontology the earlier classification was simplified and the categories periodontitis associated with systemic disease and refractory periodontitis were dropped. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemotherapy
  • After histopathological confirmation of the disease, the patient received chemotherapy followed by surgical removal of the remnant mass. (scielo.org.za)
  • Typically
  • Optic nerve involvement in Behçet's disease is rare, typically presenting as progressive optic atrophy and visual loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • conditions
  • Conditions of the human integumentary system constitute a broad spectrum of diseases, also known as dermatoses, as well as many nonpathologic states (like, in certain circumstances, melanonychia and racquet nails). (wikipedia.org)
  • While only a small number of skin diseases account for most visits to the physician, thousands of skin conditions have been described. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • It has been recently identified that recessive mutations in the FAM20A gene result in amelogenesis imperfecta (AI)-gingival fibromatosis. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Papilledema as a result of dural sinus thrombosis and atrophy resulting from retinal disease, have been characterized as secondary causes of optic nerve atrophy in Behçet's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • region
  • Examination revealed a firm, non-tender swelling measuring about 12 cm x 5 cm and involving the upper let gingival and sot palate region with complete obstruction of the left nostril ( Fig. 1 ). (scielo.org.za)
