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]

Gingival overgrowth

Excessive growth of the gingiva either by an increase in the size of the constituent cells (GINGIVAL HYPERTROPHY) or by an increase in their number (GINGIVAL HYPERPLASIA). (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p574) [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:

Periodontitis

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

MedGen UID:

Disease or Syndrome
4.

Nifedipine

A dihydropyridine calcium channel blocking agent. Nifedipine inhibits the transmembrane influx of extracellular calcium ions into myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cells, causing dilatation of the main coronary and systemic arteries and decreasing myocardial contractility. This agent also inhibits the drug efflux pump P-glycoprotein which is overexpressed in some multi-drug resistant tumors and may improve the efficacy of some antineoplastic agents. (NCI04) [from NCI]
