Message from the Editor

Our dear passionate KWAY readers, this month’s edition starts with a warm welcome! Warm is not only the welcome but also our summer. Yes, the warmest month of the year is here.

Temperatures peaking so high we can see people planning vacations to cool themselves on one side.

On the other hand, we see students preparing for their entrance exams and having their adrenaline rush throughout this month.

The month of May will also be filled with youngsters, with complaints of exam anxiety, fatigue, dehydration, and anger.

Well, the weather isn’t the only thing hot, patients feel their emotions are let out as anger and especially in summer this emotion of anger just sparks up instantly.

The sweat and the heat make us lose our patience is what we think … but the science behind it is that in hot weather we tend to restrain ourselves from physical activity and also get dehydrated easily.

Periodontal Disease

Although dental caries is the most common dental disease, the second one is periodontal disease (which is commonly referred to as gum disease). At first periodontal disease starts as gingivitis and progresses to periodontitis, if left untreated. Initially, gingivitis can be noticed by the redness, and swelling in the gums. Patients with gingivitis will experience bleeding on brushing.
