Treatment of acute ulcerative (vincent’s) gingivitis


Drugs, local cleansing and surgery may all be needed in the treatment of acute ulcerative gingivitis. Certain drugs, administered topically or systemically, relieve pain and arrest bleeding. Healing is also helped by removing debris from the teeth early. After the acute phase is over surgery is often necessary to lessen the risk of recurrence by recontouring the deformed gingivae.
