gingival

 [jin´jĭ-val]
pertaining to the gingivae.
gingival disease any disease of the gingivae, such as gingivitis. The American Academy of Periodontology classifies gingival disease as a major group of periodontal diseases and distinguishes two main subgroups, those gingival diseases induced by dental plaque and those attributed to other causes. The plaque-induced diseases may be associated with endocrine changes, medications, systemic disease, or malnutrition. The other causes of gingival lesions include viral infections, fungal infections, genetic predispositions, systemic conditions, allergic reactions, traumatic lesions, and a variety of others. See table at periodontal disease.

To effectively control the movement of upper incisors, two metal buttons were placed gingivally on the lingual surface of upper incisors and were activated by stainless steel ligature tying to the hooks on MNA.
The two metal buttons bonded gingivally on the lingual surface functioned as the pivot.
The objective of this study was to evaluate in vitro microleakage of class V Fusio TM liquid dentin self adhesive composite restorations both occlusally with enamel and gingivally with cementum/ dentin.
After the sectioning, the dye penetration depth measurements were done for each specimen occlusally and gingivally with a periodontal probe in mm with the aid of magnifying lens.
In this study, we found that, the FLD has a good ability to self etch and self bond to enamel since there was insignificant differences between all the three groups being studied and the material (FLD) has the ability to bond effectively to enamel without etching and bonding (Table 3) while the significant differences that found between the three groups regarding gingival leakage (Table 4) indicated that, conditioning and bonding steps are essential to bond the material effectively to dentin and also conditioning the dentin alone was not enough to establish a good bond to dentin/ cementum gingivally. The higher leakage detected in gingival wall compare with occlusal wall can be related to the structure of these two walls.
Establisment of contact point too gingivally will induce inflammatory response in interdental papilla region leading to bone loss.
Orthodontic forced eruption can be carried out in different ways.14, 15 A hook attached to a post can be used to pull the root vertically towards a horizontal bar attached to the adjacent teeth, by means of active elastic.1 Alternatively, brackets can be bonded to the teeth or restoration, more gingivally to the tooth to be extruded, and more incisally on the adjacent teeth, and extrusive force is provided by an orthodontic wire.
