As dental hygienists, it is important to understanding the process of inflammation at the vascular and cellular levels as gingivitis and periodontitis are all variants of an inflammatory response.

As dental hygienists, it is important to understanding the process of inflammation at the vascular and cellular levels as gingivitis and periodontitis are all variants of an inflammatory response.

For this week’s discussion, I would like to see everyone’s artistic sides shine and I would like you to DRAW a diagram of the inflammatory response. Please be sure to include the following processes and components of inflammation (feel free to include more components if you need to):

  • vasoconstriction
  • vasodilation
  • PMS’s
  • vessel permeability
  • margination
  • pavementing
  • site of injury

Take a photo of your drawing and upload it to the discussion thread

Be sure to go back and “like” the best drawing in the class!
