Unhealthy teeth are discolored, uneven, and are present in greater or less than the normal number. Teeth problems occur due to poor diet or bad eating habits, tobacco, tea, coffee, sweet and sticky foods (sweets, chocolates, raisins) and very cold or hot food can lead to discoloration or decay. Ayurveda emphasizes on cleaning the teeth with Toothpaste twice daily, in the morning and evening for a beautiful smile.
