Michelle Strange: A Tale of Two Hygienists presents this week’s TIPisode: Quick and easy tips to keep you up to date, and presented by the experts in the profession. Now, get ready for your unofficial TIPisode.
Claire Jeong: This is Claire from DentalToaster CE courses online and StudentRDH dental hygiene boards review. There are many, many conditions, lesions that we have to know in order to help our patients. One of them is pyogenic granuloma, also called PG, also called pregnancy tumor.
Here are the things that you have to know about PG. Well, they heal, usually, after delivery. They appear as raised, soft, red-purple lesion [sic] that bleeds easily. It is most common on the gingiva, but it can also occur in different areas. And PG affects men as well, not just women.
In order to memorize this information, we’re going to use something called the WakeUp Memory Technique that has been developed by me and others who are industry leaders in memorization. You’ll see that it’s so much easier to remember information when we use some tricks.
Let’s do this together. PG: What do you see here? Obviously, a P, right? And what does this condition look like? Well, it’s raised and P, purple, like the P. So now if you see something that’s red-purple and raised, it could be a pyogenic granuloma.
Let’s continue. Where do you see this most? Well, G. Take the G in PG and say gingiva. You mostly see it in gingiva. Easy, right?
What are some other characteristic [sic] you have to know about pyogenic granuloma? It’s a fad that’s related to pregnancy, and if you spell that, P-R-G-A-N-C-Y, you see again the P and a G. So you continue using this technique, and you’ll see.
We’ll go to the last point, which is pyogenic actually means pus. If you take the P from pyogenic granuloma, you’ll get P, like puss.
So we discovered many things here. But using the WakeUp Memory Technique, now you can just get all this information quickly in your head. That’s going to feel amazing, right?
We discovered that it was usually purple; G, on the gingiva and related to pregnancy, mostly; and you might have some puss coming out of it.

I hope we have give [sic] you a lot of power in your brain and you feel amazing about being able to memorize some simple information. We’re going to continue this series with a lot more, and, after that, you will know the power of your brain. Thank you. This was Claire at DentalToaster and StudentRDH.
