First of all ,i want to say tht plaque ir calculus s not something genetic, it s due to the sheer negligience on your part. Poor oral hygiene s because of improper tooth brushing. Visit to the dentist and get cleaning of teeth done (scaling). On your part, you have to do twice brushing followed by mouthwash and glossing once a week. Do not forget to rinse after every meals.

You cant get get cold in cheek, simple, your cavity might have gone deeper, / your dentist might have done a composite/ metal restoration(amalgam withoutliner) this often causes acute pulpitis, or even there can be high pionts in the filling(restoration),does it give you pain on biting?

Dental guard or accrual splints are the best and harmless treatment for brauxism.Some medicines are also there but they have bad side effects. You can go to a good physiotherapist. They can help you .

For sensitivity you can use sensodyne toothpaste twice a day and for bleeding get your teeth cleaned once from dentist. It will help.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

I am 19 years old. Is it necessary to take off premolars in order to fix braces? Is it safe plucking off teeth?

I am 19 years old. Is it necessary to take off premolars in order to fix braces? Is it safe plucking off teeth?
It depends on each cases, some cases require extraction and some cases does not require extraction, so kindly visit Orthodontist first so that he evaluate and come to devotion to remove or not. Teeth extraction is of course safe and a pain less procedure, if it is not safe then doctors don't advise for you :)
