SUMMARY:
Gingivitis and periodontal disease are inflammatory diseases of the mouth. A previous indication of gingivitis or periodontal disease was high depths of pockets within the gums (anything above 2-3mm). However, it has been found that pocket depths are not necessarily a hallmark criterion, but rather a diagnostic sign used to identify a problem. Elevated temperature inside the gums is a cardinal sign of inflammation. The "Periotemp" is an electric thermometer that measures the temperature at the bottom of the gum pocket. In examining patients, clinicians recorded both pocket depth measures and the temperature of the gums in order to determine if a problem exists.
