  Healthy gingiva possess clinical features in respect to morphology and consistency. The color of the attached and marginal gingiva is generally described as “coral pink” and is produced by the: vascular supply, the thickness, degree of keratinization of the epithelium, the presence of pigment-containing cells. The alveolar mucosa is red, smooth, and shiny rather than pink and stippled. The central portion of the interdental papillae is usually stippled, but the marginal borders are smooth.
