The development of an acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) is connected with preexisting gingivitis and factors of disposition which are able to influence the host resistance. Typical clinical signs of ANUG are necrosis of interdental gingiva, bleeding and pain. Concerning to clinical sign there is a differentiation between the acute and the chronic necrotizing gingivitis. The treatment of ANUG follows the general rules of gingivitis-therapy and will be modified concerning to the clinical signs. It will propose a regular follow-up for prevention of recidivation.
