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 interdental gingiva.
“It should be noted that that call area is an area that is non keratinized, which is why it’s so easy for our sulcular epithelium or our sulcular lining to easily ulcerate if there’s a place of infection and our probe is articulating into that area.”
“We know that if there’s a diastema that’s present, for example, or a loss of contact in between two adjacent teeth, that that interdental papilla could be absent and there is no call to angulate into.”
