Brief Answer:
Please see description

Detailed Answer:
hello

thank you for the answers. I have gone through them. There are a number of steps that can help to tighten the teeth BUT main step is to visit a dentist. Following general measures will help as well:

- Change your toothpaste. Many of the commercial toothpaste brands make your breath smell great temporarily, but some of the ingredients are actually more harmful to your teeth and gums than natural alternatives. Natural brands containing tea tree oil, for example, can help fight gum infections that cause your teeth to loosen.
- Avoid chewing hard food, ice and candy, especially with the loose teeth in your mouth.
- Brush carefully and regularly
- Mix pepper and turmeric in a bowl and gently massage into your gum for 1 to 2 minutes to make them stronger.
- A mixture of 1/8 tsp of salt with 2 drops of mustard oil can be massaged into your gum for 1 minute. Rinse your mouth with cool water. This can help strengthen your gums and avoid loose teeth.
- Include foods that are a rich source of Vitamin C such as oranges, guavas, kiwi and strawberries, and calcium foods such as yogurt, cheese, cereals and milk


Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
