Re: toothpaste to make your teeth stronger?
You can get a tartar control toothpaste to help with the tartar problem. Although, once the calculus has become hard, it's nearly impossible for you to get it off with a toothbrush. Which is why you need the scaling and root planning. Scaling and root planning is just a cleaning that goes below the level of the gums. It cleans the plaque and calculus off of the teeth. Sometimes they do this by sections, other times they may do the whole mouth at once. It really depends on how much calculus/tartar you have. It can be anywhere from a half an hour visit to an hour. There is no special toothpaste that will help bring back the bone that you may have lost around your teeth. If you are grinding your teeth, there is a chance that the trauma is causing your teeth to become mobile. You can get a night guard to help decrease the trauma on your teeth. Once the trauma is decreased, then your teeth may have some mobility dwecrease. It really depends on if there is bone loss present too, and whether or not the mobility is really only from the grinding/clenching. The night guard is definitely worth a shot though. You should talk about it with your dentist.
