Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gingiva (gums), characterised by redness, swelling, bleeding  easily when brushed or prodded, tenderness and usually bad breath. Swelling deepens the crevice between gums and teeth, where pockets containing pus may develop to cause a condition called pyorrhoea. Gingivitis is common and may be acute, chronic or recurrent.
 The most frequent single cause of gingivitis is poor dental hygiene with a build-up of dental plaque around the base of the teeth. Other localised causes include tartar, calcified plaque, food traps between teeth and ill-fitting dental plates, caps or crowns. The gum inflammation that often develops during puberty or pregnancy is thought to be aggravated by hormonal factors. Gingivitis may also be a symptom of general illness for example in Diabetes mellitus and leukaemia and malnutrition especially in scurvy and pellagra Vitamin B3 deficiency.
 Gingivitis is treated by control of plaque and correction of any other local or general conditions that contribute to the disorder.  Good dental hygiene with regular tooth brushing and use of dental floss will prevent most gingivitis. Acute ulcerative necrotizing gingivitis is a non contagious, painful, ulcerating infection of the gums also called trench mouth or Vincents disease. This can develop in heavy smokers or people suffering poor dental hygiene, nutritional deficiencies or physical or emotional stress.  The mouth has an extremely bad odour, and the victim may develop a fever. The plaque and calculus irritate the gums, causing them to become inflamed.  In time, the bone supporting the teeth may become inflamed.  The best way to prevent plaque from building up under the gum line is by flossing daily.  The gums can also become irritated by habitually breathing through the mouth, smoking or chewing tobacco, brushing improperly, or wearing ill-fitting dentures.  Irregularly positioned teeth can also irritate the gums. 
 Symptoms develop rapidly over a day or so and include very painful bleeding gums, foul breath, crater like ulcers covered with a grayish membrane particularly on the points of gums between the teeth and usually swollen glands around the jaws.  People who smoke or chew tobacco or drink excessive amounts of alcoholic beverages are exposing themselves to an increased risk of developing oral cancer.  Oral cancer may be painless and unnoticeable in its early stages.  The first symptom may be a small sore in the mouth that does not heal.
 Treatment is by the use of hydrogen peroxide mouthwashes to relieve the symptoms, followed by gentle removal of plaque by the dentist. Anti bacterial drugs may also be need.  Good nutrition is essential to recovery.
 According to energy concept of SuJok Acupuncture, gums inflammation in mainly because of nutritional deficiency, thrush is stomatitis caused by infection with fungus, also associated with the excessive emotional stress; Basic dominant energy is Stomach and sub branch energy of gums mucous membrane is excess of Dryness. One may easily overcome the symptoms of gums inflammation by controlling this energy.
 SuJok Acupuncture not only is effective as a primary modality, it also can play a vital role as an adjunct therapy due to how effective the meridian system is as a means of proper diagnosis. Because the meridians influence every cell in the body and pass through every organ and organ system, acupuncture provides health practitioners with an accurate and noninvasive means of determining health deficiencies, as well as a method of reestablishing balance.  It [acupuncture] provides maximum benefits without the dangerous side effects associated with many of the approaches of conventional medicine.
 While acupuncture represents a legacy of concepts that predate Western civilization, as a contemporary health care system it also represents a synthesis of continuously evolving scientific and technological developments which provides us with new tools to meet current clinical challenges. The treatment is undoubtedly Total Effectiveness.

 STOMATITIS is an inflammation of lining of the mouth. Person affected with the stomatitis may be having problems such as unwilling to eat, pains in mouth, salivation, mucous membranes of cheeks and gums has numerous yellowish aphthous eruptions surrounded by hyperaemic crowns. AND the causes may be including infection, injury, dryness, allergy, irritations and toxin.  Chronic or relapsing stomatitis is often an indication of generalised disorders such as vitamin deficiencies especially B and C, anaemia, inadequate white blood cells or auto immune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies that attack one or more of body’s own tissues.  Symptoms may be varying according to the cause, but always include sore mouth with ulceration of its lining membrane and often bad breath and blood tinged saliva.
 Acupuncture<SuJok>, itself is a powerful medicine, which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of people’s lives.  It has also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine.  Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including STOMATITIS.  With Acupuncture SuJok, the treatment concept is traditionally accomplished through insertion of very fine needles at the certain energy gates, joints of affected organs points or energy flow therapy of acupuncture located along the meridians in miniature form of hands or feet’s.  It is definitely effective to have CURE or remedial effect of STOMATITIS. The course of treatment should definitely be uneventful. One must simultaneously opt for ACUPUNCTURE to have more positive results.
 According to energy concept of acupuncture sujok, inside the mouth cavity is controlled by the humidity energy, so the dominant energy is humidity and the controlled organs on Hetero side is stomach and on Homo side is spleen.  One has to give sedating effect of humidity and heat in axial approach<as inflammation itself is excess of heat energy> and tonification of coldness energy. Both the way treatment is effective either horizontically or vertically.
 Besides this, affected person has to carefully oral mouth washing with warm water for soothing and cleansing, as it gives local anaesthetic effect.
 One has to use sensitive bristles of toothbrush and has to change before it get started piercing.
 One has to avoid sweets, coffees, chocolates or spicy things.
 One has to gargle every three to four hours with warm water.
 Get Enough Water; insufficient water intake is a primary cause of constipation. Constipation then causes an imbalance in bacteria, promotes inflammation of the intestinal lining, and can even lead to the absorption of larger molecules, a condition known as intestinal permeability.
 Water Works: DON’T forget to drink eight to ten glasses of water a day. Water will flush out toxins, hydrate the skin and even take the edge off appetite. Can you believe of a product that does more good than that — and is practically Bearing Fruit? DON’T be frugal with the fruit.
