On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH discusses patients that present with a gingival manifestation associated with viral origin.
“Speaking of fever, another very common viral condition that we can see in the oral cavity is primary herpetic gingivostomatitis.”
“The latent form is a form of shingles or herpes zoster and this type of shingles observation, of course, we oftentimes see in an older patient population, oftentimes observed by a unilateral pain. We see this as well in the oral cavity.”
