Junctional epithelium has migrated

4

Record what 3 clinical characteristics about gingiva?

Color, contour (shape), consistency (tone)

5

Terms for extent:
Localized
Generalized

Throughout the sextant arch or mouth

6

Terms for Degree of distribution:
Marginal-
Papillary-
Diffuse-

Change in free or marginal gingiva

Involving papilla but not free gingiva

Attached gingiva is involved as well as free, frequently located
