On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about cementum!
“Cementum itself is not as calcified as some of our other tissues in the body, and the idea behind this, of course, is the fact that as a layer of cementum is laid down, it only calcifies to a certain amount before the next layer of cementum is laid down, meaning that cementum is never fully calcified.”
“So when a patient is sensitive, oftentimes it’s not due to the cementum, but due to either decay or of course, the potential that there could be some recession and exposed tooth structure, specifically of the dentin.”
