Which paste i should use in my teeth?

Dentist,
Which paste i should use in my teeth?
Hi. Normally if you are not suffering from any kind of sensitivity issues you can use colgate total or any paste form of toothpaste but the point is you should brush twice daily. It is not the toothpaste which is going to help it is the brushing technique and frequency of brushing which is going to help you from cavity protection.

Problems with the jaw, e.

There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including: Foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing.... Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste.

Just complete the course of antibiotics. If you don't have any bruises because of trauma, then you can smoke and drink. Smoking and drinking are not good for your health, so if you have controlled the habit then don't start again. Be healthy, be happy.
