On this week’s episode of Fast Facts - Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH takes us through green complex bacteria as established by Sokransky et al in their 1998 classification system.
“E. Corrodens is commensal of the human mouth as well as the upper respiratory tract. While it's not usually a type of bacteria that will cause infection when cultured, some infections can occur with this green complex bacteria.”
“These species are oftentimes considered opportunistic pathogens because of their ability to create additional infections, specifically in immunocompromised individuals.”
“E. Corrodens also is typically a result of poor oral hygiene and can provide the initial groundwork in the initial layers of periodontal infection.”
