Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
Necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (NUG) also called Vincent’s infection is a type of gingivitis that has characteristic signs and symptoms. This disease commences by primarily involving the free gingival margin and the interdental papilla. Pain, interdental ulceration and bleeding are considered to be diagnostic.This disease was previously designated as “Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG)”. But investigators have discontinued the use of the term “Acute” in ANUG, because there is no chronic form of this disease.
