The periodontal abscess: Patient blames hygienist for periodontal 'infection'
Dental hygienists regularly perform periodontal treatments on patients. But, what happens when one of them blames the hygienist for an infection or problem?

While this doesn't mean you caused the infection, it just reinforces the need for proper, detailed documentation.
