A condition characterized by the abnormal loss of gum tissue due to infection or bone loss.

متنزل مسوڑھے- گلتے مسوڑھے

Definition from own experience or research:
جو چیز تنزلی کا شکار ہو اسے متنزل کہا جاتا ہے۔

چونکہ یہ ایسی حالت کا ذکر ہے جس میں مسوڑھے ختم ہو رہے ہیں، اس وجہ سے میں نے اس کا نام "متنزل مسوڑھے یا گلتے مسوڑھے" تجویز کیا ہے۔

Example sentence(s):
  • متنزل مسوڑھوں - گلتے مسوڑھوں کا فوری علاج ضروری ہے ورنہ دانت گر جائیں گے۔ - None
