    • stippling
    • mucogingival junction
  2. Tall narrow papilla pulling on the epithelium. Very healthy
  3. the mucogingival junction is a ________ division between the _________ gingiva and the __________ mucosa

    • attached
    • alveolar
  4. what is the melanin pigmentation?
    it is normal. similar to the melanin in your skin. more common in patients with darker skin (more melanin)
  5. the turnover time and repair of the oral mucosa is _______
    quick (tied to blood supply)
  6. repair:
