Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients with simple chronic gingivitis should be given nonurgent dental referral.

  • Patients with ANUG should be seen within 24-48 hours for reevaluation because of risk of local or systemic spread of infection.

  • In addition to antibiotic therapy, physical and mental stressors should be eliminated. Good oral hygiene is mandatory.
