Get you teeth cleaned before it become like your mother, if your mother would have got her teeth cleaned every six months since young age then she would not have had this problem. So dont be afraid and get cleaning done.

Our teeth should only be used for chewing purposes. Using them for performing other activities such as cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can cause chipped or broken teeth.

if the gap is not much, go for scaling and polishing of teeth n than make the habit of gum massage. this will reduce the gap within a few weeks. if the gap is more, than you will require new cap.

If the tooth is out because of bad gym health it may not be possible without gum therapy/ root canal/ extraction and bridges. If gum condition is healthy then braces can be done at even 40 years of age.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Visit the dentist to know the exact cause of sensitivity. Sensitivity can be due to wearing of teeth, loosening of gums or due to caries in the teeth. Accordingly treatment can be given to you. Regards

It sounds like you may have a condition called as oral submucosal fibrosis (osf) that occurs due to excessive chewing of tobacco and gutka. If that is the case then see an ent to receive steroid injections that will release the fibrous bands and help in opening your mouth. You will also need exercises to open the mouth. If your ent says the cause is not osf then he may evaluate your tm joint (jaw bone joint) to see if there is any issue there.

Kindly get scaling done and use mouth wash twice daily for 15 days. Get your cavities filled before further damage. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique and also notice that you are not constipated most of the times as this is also one of the reasons for bad breath.

Treatment dental pain teeth pain may be due to various reasons like infection, sensitivity or trauma. If your teeth is decayed it is better to get it filled or treated by a dentist. If you are opting for root canal treatment do not forget to get a crown on the effected tooth. If you want to go for only medicinal treatment so let me tell you only medicine are not going to be very effective untill you get this treated by a dentist.

Colour of teeth depend on many factors brushing doesnot change colour of teeth get your teeth cleaned professionally by a dentist (scaling) and you can go fr bleaching to change colour frm yellow to whitr.
