Necrotizing ulcerative gingival lesions and clinical attachment loss.
Eur J Oral Sci. 2004 Feb; 112(1):105-7.EJ

Abstract

This paper describes the association between the occurrence of necrotizing ulcerative gingival lesions and clinical attachment loss using multivariable logistic regression methods and data originating in an epidemiological study conducted among a random sample of adolescents (n = 9203). Results show that the presence of necrotizing ulcerative gingival lesions is strongly associated with the occurrence of clinical attachment loss, whether defined as the presence of clinical attachment loss > or= 1 mm in at least two teeth or as the presence of clinical attachment loss > or = 3 mm in at least one tooth. This contribution of necrotizing ulcerative gingival lesions appeared to occur independently of the contribution from known common risk factors. Our findings suggest that there are causes of necrotizing ulcerative gingival lesions, yet to be identified, which have a substantial impact on the occurrence of clinical attachment loss.
