Necrotizing Periodontitis

Abstract
Necrotizing periodontitis (NP), previously referred to as necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis, is a specific subset of necrotizing periodontal diseases (NPD). In general, NP is a reactive, destructive inflammatory process in response to bacterial inflammation, and represents the most severe form of the biofilm-related diseases.[1] Although rare in modern industrialized society, this disease process can progress through various stages that are considered to be of the same disease due to their shared etiology and clinical presentation.[2] These stages are necrotizing gingivitis (NG), NP, and necrotizing stomatitis (NS).[3] NG is the most common form and is seen to progress to NP in susceptible populations, such as in immunosuppressed patients. The classification and staging of NPDs are further discussed in the 'staging' subsection.
