A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Jul 26, 2021

On this week’s episode of Fast Facts - Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH discusses systemic or modifying factors for patients that present with dental biofilm induced gingivitis. 


“What we're really talking about is the fact that in addition, these individuals present with a dramatic rise in their sex steroid hormone levels during puberty.”

“we look at patients that present with medication for contraception, namely patients that take over-the-counter birth control pills. These are going to be patients that will present with some type of a gingival inflammation in many cases due to the concentration of sex steroid hormones.”
