On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about anatomy of the periodontium, focusing on the attached gingiva.
“It is attached, firmly bound into the bone and cemented by connective tissue fibers and it’s important to note that attached gingiva is able to withstand the forces from toothbrushing and chewing.”
“That amount of millimeters gives us the amount of free gingiva and attached gingiva, so we have to remove or subtract the amount of free gingiva from that number to give us our attached gingiva.”
