A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Sep 6, 2021

On this week’s episode of Fast Facts - Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about necrotizing periodontal diseases.




“If any of you have ever treated a patient that has a necrotizing periodontal disease, you'll never forget it. In fact, the smell of that disease process alone is probably ingrained into your nose hairs, if you know what I'm talking about.”


“This can also be observed with patients that have an odor, the patients are absolutely experiencing severe inflammation, and I hate to say it, one of my favorite parts about necrotizing disease is that it's oftentimes accompanied by pain, which I think oftentimes is a massive driver.”
