On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders, we are continuing the conversation around periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic disease discussing patients that present with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Katrina highlights cardinal signs to look for, and shares a personal experience with a patient at her practice.
“There are about 13 different kinds of different displays of Ehlers-Danlos.”
“Ehlers-Danlos is oftentimes seen systemically, however, we can also see it intraorally.”
“As you can imagine, if this is a disease that impacts the connective tissue or lamina propria, we are going to likely see some challenges in the mechanical protection of the periodontium.”
