On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH looks at patients specifically who present with non dental biofilm induced gingivitis associated with traumatic lesions or hypersensitivity reactions.
“These are going to be patients that may have some type of a reaction due to dental restorative materials. These could be patients that are reacting to their toothpaste, their mouthwash, some type of a food, and most oftentimes these are patients that are presenting with a type 4 delayed contact, hypersensitivity reaction.”
“These are changes in which we begin to see shifts or movement of the soft tissue, again, not necessarily due to the presence of biofilm, but rather the presence of clinical disorders or allergic reactions.”
