Eating food gives you fibre than drinking fruit juices. Fibre is good for digestion and has cleansing action on teeth. Eating fruit is always better. Whitening tooth pastes are safe, but the action is temporary/ short lived. There are other ways to whiten your teeth.

It doesn't matter whether u take which ever form of medicine to control your sugar level. The only thing which matters is that your blood sugar level should be under control. Then u can undergo any form of surgery.

The Chemistry between Calcium and Teeth

Calcium phosphate is the main component of the tooth enamel so any deficiency in calcium can cause damage to the enamel. Calcium is not only required for having healthy teeth but also healthy bones and heart.

Healthy teeth are a sign of good overall health and wellbeing. There are many factors that impact the health of the teeth such as improper diet, smoking, and sugar.

Benefits of calcium for teeth

-Calcium reduces the chances of losing a teeth
-It reduces chances of cavities
-Calcium, when combined with a proper nutritious diet, helps in increasing the longevity of the teeth
-Calcium can reduce chances of gum disease
-Calcium along with other minerals also help in improving blood supply around the teeth area
-A calcium compound, amorphous calcium phosphate helps in fluoride absorption in the tooth enamel
-It limits loss of mass in the jawbone
-Calcium also fortifies the bones around the jaw to reduce bone problems such as loss of bone structure as one gets older
-It helps in protecting the teeth from acidic components that cause tooth decay

To have healthy teeth, one needs to have a balanced diet that meets the regular calcium requirements besides following a healthy lifestyle.

Aloe vera has many curative and healing properties that can treat many oral problems, including a sore tongue. Its anti-inflammatory property helps reduce pain and inflammation. Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf and apply it directly on the affected area. Repeat a few times daily. Another option is to rinse your mouth with aloe vera juice 3 or 4 times a day.

One more option called" composite fillings" which will cover the gap and it will be same like tooth colour. One more option called" teeth veneering" in which your teeth will be covered by veneer so gap will not be visible. Visit to a dentist for examination and proper treatment plan.

This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regards.
