INTERSTITIAL GINGIVITIS DUE TO AUTOINTOXICATIONAS INDICATED BY THE URINE AND BLOOD PRESSURE —DIAGNOSIS.

Abstract

In a former paper, "Interstitial Gingivitis Due to Autointoxication," I discussed etiology; in my work on "Interstitial Gingivitis, or So-called Pyorrhea Alveolaris" I demonstrated the pathology; in this paper I propose to discuss the method of diagnosis in interstitial gingivitis. It has been demonstrated that this disease originates from autointoxication. It is justifiable, then, to state that interstitial gingivitis is dependent on the circulation and the vasomotor system. It is, then, a profitable subject for investigation. Before discussion of this phase of the subject, it is necessary to become familiar with the structures involved, which in themselves are unique. There are no other structures in the human body like them. I have gone into details many times in a description of these structures. I will now only discuss them in a general way. The alveolar process is a bony structure intended to hold the teeth in position; when the teeth
