Most recents (24)

Every week, I get at least one phone call complaining of severe toothache, almost always in the molars. (Back teeth).

The patient comes in and the clinical examination and xrays show no cavities, and the tests for fracture are usually negative at this stage.

Usually it can only mean one of two things:
1) If the pain is restricted to the upper molar, then a recent of concurrent history of sinusitis/runny nose/cold etc. I typically see this around late November and the history is very clear.

What is Bruxism?

In plain and simple words, severe uncontrolled undesirable grinding of teeth against each other, usually occurs when the patients is asleep and the patient has no idea they are doing this.

The test is very simple. I will use my finger to test the Lateral

I have been thinking about samosas for the last week & here is a thread about them. For starters the Samosa comes from West Asia and was originally meat wrapped in a dough cone and fried - the sambusak! The only truly veg versions are all Indian! #Samosa #Sambusak #PunjabiSamosa
I grew up in Mumbai eating what is now known as the Parsi/Bohri Samosa and which I simply knew as a Samosa. Lightly spiced lamb mince cooked with onions, green chillies and corriander, stuffed into a triangular pocket made from flat precooked sheets of samosa patti. #Samosa
These were then slowly fried in hot (not too hot) oil till golded brown & served with a typically Parsi Green chutney made with coconut, mint, corriander, peppercorns, green chutney & lime juice. These treats were rare and cherished! #Samosa

#Pune So I wqs at a famous misal place in Tulshibag. Been here after a very long time to personally pick up misal. They tell me I need my own container - no exception and going back home just for it wasn't feasible. So I hop across the street to a stainless steel shop. 1/n
I ask him for a stainless steel container by showing approx size by hand. First thing he asks..."kiti misal nyaychya ahet (how many misals) 🤣. I was so not expecting that. He said he sells a few containers each day to people like me...My jaw almost hit the floor.
I joked that he probably has a set up with the misal shop...He laughed at my tongue in cheek remark and his only other remark was... "Joshi buwa ahet te..." 😄😄🤣
Whattay start to a Sunday funday...

“Doctor why do I need to take this letter to my physician? It’s just a tooth l! Just take it out! What does my heart have to do with it?”

If you are a dentist, you have heard this line many many times!

Here’s why:

Old family friend.

Wife passed away many years ago due to

Son in the US!

Not much going on for him other than a job!

Over the last few years, ended up neglecting his health!

His diabetes was through the roof!

The 3 month average, HbA1C, was around 10 for years! (Even for diabetics it should be under 7)
Tried very hard to motivate him to address it! No change!

Wears an upper complete denture and has a few broken teeth in the lower jaw!

Met someone who got a full mouth implant rehabilitation done and so now wanted the same!

FINALLY got it to 7.5ish in December!

Dr Madhav Ghate, practising Psychiatrist, Pune writes on:

Why Tennis is so much more than a game!

I have been playing tennis for more than 55 years. Played it at the school, college, university level and even up to national and international levels.
I have also played many other games like Cricket, Table tennis, water polo, Athletics and so on. But gradually Tennis became my first passion. So much so that my wife used to say that it’s your first wife. Now after seventy years of life, looking back, I have realized that Tennis
has given me a lot of things beyond just the pleasure of playing the game. Without a doubt I can say that I ENJOY life. Every day ! Being a psychiatrist, I have a habit of analyzing things. You see, WHY is an extremely important question not just in psychiatry but in medicine in

#Pune was the no.1 #Covid Hotspot in the country during both the 1st and the 2nd waves.
The key reason the region survived and prevented a medical catastrophe even when the entire system was extremely overwhelmed is because of our #PuneModel of Collaboration. /1
A collaborative approach where the entire medical fraternity, industry leaders, corporates, politicians across all parties, administration, NGOs, and citizen volunteers came together to provide timely relief and aid to help #Pune overcome the peaks of the #pandemic. /2
We all #Punekars are proud of it, and also find solace & encouragement that even if the 3rd wave hits us harder, is more intense.. we will once again overcome all the hurdles as a team, and ensure that the region survives medically, emotionally and economically. /3

#OnThisDay in 1881, a newspaper was launched that roared fearlessly against the policies and practices of the British in #India. The paper was ‘Kesari’ (or ‘lion’) and it was launched in #Pune by leading nationalist and freedom fighter #BalGangadharTilak. 1/4 Image
Tilak was just 25 when he launched Kesari on 4th January 1881. It started out as a Marathi paper, whose core group also included Gopal Ganesh Agarkar, (its first editor) and Vishnushastri Chiplunkar. 2/4 Image
Tilak used the newspaper as a vehicle to awaken Indians during the freedom movement. It was the voice of Swaraj and Swadeshi. Tilak was charged with sedition and jailed in 1897 for his fiery writing and for urging Indians to rise up and reclaim what was theirs – their freedom 3/4

Existential thread re how much do you love your kids & if you really, really want them over for Xmas holidays?

All thanks to @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI & @JM_Scindia @PMOIndia allowing v few flights, so fares > ₹1.5 lac, any sector, #London to #India
In @ShashiTharoor's cattle class
Thought I'd begin with our national carrier @airindiain after a great experience last time

Chose #AMD @ahmairport, one of our few international airports with A

Fare is £1983 (is it a promotion with the movie 83?)
Hey, it's #Gujarat, all business folks, ex Modi town. My bad!
Then went for the pukka #British @British_Airways

Picked #Hyderabad simply because it isn't #Bangalore, trying smaller airports, maybe better given the Covid restrictions

The fare is a whopping £2231. Ok, back to the drawing board !

Kind folks of Twitter, I need help in solving a personal issue ie lifting my sister

Avani, the angel of our world, is handicapped, no limb movement or communication possible. She has to be lifted from her bed on to her pram & vice versa about 6-8 times a day
Two of us usually do the lifting, one from the shoulders, the other from the legs

Am assuming she weighs about 45-50 kgs and since no communication is possible, her body is inert and lifting isn't easy, though within our family we've been managing last 40 years
Of late, twice while lifting (I usually do the shoulders, the heavier side), I've had terrible back spasms / nerve pulls rendering me completely immobile for a couple of days, with recovery taking ~2 weeks

It happened first time 3 months ago and I'm still suffering from the 2nd

काल नितीन गडकरींनी पुण्यात केलेल्या भाषणातील म्हत्वाचे मुद्दे:

१. पुण्यातील मेट्रोचे काम खुप गतीने चालू आहे ह्याचे समाधान वाटतं.

२. सिंहगड रोड येथील राजाराम पुल ते फनटाईम मल्टिप्लेक्सच्या फ्लायओव्हरचे आज भुमिपूजन.

३. पुणे विमानतळ याचे एक्सटेंशन झाले आहे ह्याचा आनंद झाला. अजून तेरा एकर जागा देऊन कॅपॅसिटी वाढवून जागा तिप्पट होईल. इंटरनॅशनल एअरपोर्टची सोय होईल.

४. जायकाच्या चौदाशे कोटीच्या नदी प्रकल्पाची वर्क ऑर्डर निघत आहे.

५. वाघोली ते शिरूर येथे ग्राऊंडला ८ लेन चा रास्ता, पहिल्या फ्लोरला ६ लेनचा पुल आणि तिसऱ्या फ्लोर वर मेट्रो करता जागा ठेवत आहोत. तळेगाव ते नगर रोड पर्यंत आणि तेथून वाघोलीपर्यंत आणि मग शिरूर पर्यंत अश्याच design ची रिंग करता येईल.
