1.

Colonization

The presence of microorganisms (not contamination) on a body surface, including the skin and mucosal surfaces (e.g., respiratory, gastrointestinal, and urogenital tracts). Colonization implies the lack of signs or symptoms of infection but often precedes infection. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
927299
Concept ID:
C4289767
Finding
2.

Periodontitis

An acute or chronic inflammatory process that affects the tissues that surround and support the teeth. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
45815
Concept ID:
C0031099
Disease or Syndrome
3.

Periodontal pocket

An abnormal deepening of a gingival sulcus associated with destruction of the supporting periodontal tissue. [from NCI]

Plaque

Abnormal tissue that results from the progressive accumulation or deposit of certain substances in a body cavity, surface, or lumen. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Periodontitis, chronic

Chronic periodontitis, formerly called adult periodontitis, is the most frequently occurring form of periodontitis and is characterized by slowly progressing alveolar bone destruction and attachment loss. Although chronic periodontitis is most prevalent in adults and has a slow progression, it can occur in children and adolescents and may have periods of rapid progression (Armitage, 1999). [from GTR]

Concept ID:
C0266929
Disease or Syndrome
7.

Chronic

Slow, creeping onset, slow progress and long continuance of disease manifestations. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
104657
Concept ID:
C0205191
Temporal Concept
8.

Distal

Localized away from the central point of the body. [from HPO]

Concept ID:
C0011389
Disease or Syndrome

Accretion on teeth

Accumulations of microflora that lead to pathological plaque and calculus which cause PERIODONTAL DISEASES. It can be considered a type of BIOFILMS. It is subtly distinguished from the protective DENTAL PELLICLE. [from MeSH]
