Also known as Acute Necrotizing Ulcerative Gingivitis or Vincent’s Infection. It is a serious and ulcerative infection of the gums causing fever, pain and bad breath. It was discovered in the trenches of WWI and is due to poor oral hygiene, lack of sleep, build-up of bacterial plaque, and stress. Although non-contagious, it is a serious matter usually requiring antibiotics, debridement of the tissue, and improved oral hygiene.
