On this week’s episode of Fast Facts - Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about bacteria outlier, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans!
“Although there were some pieces of evidence that did point to the fact that there was some plausibility that AA could be present in rapid rate episodic cases, we also saw that P. gingivalis showed up to the party and along with her, she brought her buddies Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola.”
“Currently this bacteria, we believe, is linked to other systemic diseases when it is able to create a systemic burden by entering the bloodstream and circulating through the body.”
