Necrotizing periodontal disease is a localized, often acute, gingival inflammation usually brought about by a bacterial infection with possible related etiological factors. This disease can be further subdivided into two sub-classifications. If this condition presents as an acute infection of the gingiva without further damage to the periodontal tissue, it is referred to as necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis. If the infection has progressed deeper into the periodontium, it sub-classified as necrotizing periodontitis.
