Dr. Challagulla Vijay Kumar replied
As a Dentist I care for my patients, that is the reason why I asked to stop touching inflamed gums (swollen tissues) touching continuously and with unhygienic hands problem gets aggravated...The point of me not offering treatment is patient wanted to go for proximal stripping 1.5mm each teeth and fix braces which is not good reason being patient will develop severe sensitivity for life time ...
We respect our profession and we go by certain ethics...everything is not all about dimes. Patients should understand doctor's perspective too and listen to what he suggests and why he does that.!
So to simply put: the patient came in for consultation for half done orthodontic treatment and asked for a certain treatment which was not advisable, and I as a dental practitioner did not like his unhealthy habit of playing with gums and braces which I politely to asked him stop doing such things in his own it.
