According to Ayurveda, teeth are a by product of bone. Cavities in the teeth, and receding gums, are signs of aggravation of vata in the skeletal system.
Problems with teeth are often related to a deficiency of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. To prevent future problems or to alleviate a deficiency:
Chew a handful of calcium-rich white sesame seeds every morning. (Then brush your teeth without putting any toothpaste on the brush, so the residue of the sesame seeds can rub against your teeth, polishing and cleaning them.)
You can also use a mineral supplement containing a daily dose of approximately these amounts: calcium (1,200 mg.), mag?nesium (600 mg.), and zinc (60 mg.) per tablet.
At the site of tendinitis, apply a cold compress such as an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables. That will minimize the inflammation.

You can make your teeth healthier and more beautiful by massaging your gums daily with sesame oil. Take a mouthful of warm sesame oil and swish it from side to side for 2 to 3 minutes. Don't swallow it. Spit out the oil, then gently massage your gums with your index finger. This is an excellent preventive measure for receding gums, tooth infection, and cavities.
Ayurvedic den?tistry recommends the use of bitter and astringent herbs for cleaning the teeth. The main herbs used are neem, which is bitter, and lohdra, kushta, and bilva, which are all astrin?gent. You can make an excellent cleanser for brushing your teeth by mixing the powdered form of neem and an equal amount of any of the astringent herbs and use the mixture to brush your teeth as usual. You can also buy commercial toothpastes and powders con?taining these herbs in natural food stores and from most suppliers of Ayurvedic herbs.
You may also be able to find powders for the teeth made out of finely ground, roasted almond shells. These are highly benefi?cial for maintaining the good health of the teeth.
Receding gums, and sensi?tivity of teeth to cold and hot temperatures, indicate a bacterial infection in the roots of the teeth.
To treat the infection, wet a clean tooth?brush, and put a few drops of tea tree oil directly onto the brush. Brush your teeth. Then use a cotton swab to apply some tea tree oil to the exposed part of the gums. This treatment will help arrest further infection of the teeth and will take care of pain and sen?sitivity to hot and cold.
You can also apply some tea tree oil to your dental floss. This will help you reach some possible deep pockets of infection that the brush doesn't reach. (Commercial floss treated with tea tree oil is also available.)
Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of chewing food well. This not only helps the digestive process, but also stimulates the gums.
For strengthening teeth and gums, try eating 4 figs and chewing them well, once a day.
Gently tap your teeth together 5 or 6 times, almost clenching them but gently, so that you don't break the crowns! This is said to stimulate the energy meridians related to the teeth.
