Necrotizing periodontal diseases are the most severe inflammatory periodontal disorders caused by bacterial plaque. The diagnosis is based on clinical and radiological features. Necrotizing periodontitis lesions are confined to periodontal tissues, including gingiva, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone. The pathognomonic clinical characteristics are the typical punched out appearance and interproximal craters. In this case report, we presented a 20- year old man with necrotizing periodontitis and no systemic disease with a history of tobacco use and intense stress. The case was managed by conservative oral treatment and regular psychological follow up.
