Dear Dr Ratnadeep Patil, My congratulations to you for your dedication and professional capability in establishing an institution like Smile Care. Your personality seems to infuse the place as I remember all the warm and smiling faces that always welcomed me during my numerous visits. The quality of your work and your team's work was excellent and caring. After many years my bite is normal. My heartfelt thanks to you and Dr.Dimple who looked after me with great care and skill. And a special thanks for the gratis enamel on my two front teeth.
Gum disease is a silent disease and around 75 % population has some kind of a of gum problem even without being aware of its existence. The extent of the disease however varies from individual to individual depending on how they maintain their oral hygiene. A gum disease shows up as an infection in the gums (commonly known as pus in the gums or pyorrhoea) and therefore also affects the bones once it gets to be rather severe. There is bone loss down into and around each of the teeth and teeth start becoming loose. Pain is never associated with this disease whereas, occasional bleeding during brushing, foul smell of the mouth, gaps in teeth, loose teeth could be some of the symptoms one could experience. When that happens bacteria can take up residence and it can become a systemic problem including problems related to the heart more than just an oral problem.
