Furthermore your teeth need calcium and other minerals too, but calcium is very important for strong bones and teeth. Eggs, cheese and milk are high in calcium, as most know already.

Preventive maintenance should be our main thrust. Maintaining the health of the body is primary. Keep the teeth clean. Supply minerals and trace minerals for strong teeth and bones. Most gum shrinkage is due to the bone dissolving away at up to 1 mm/year, due to lack of intake of proper amount and type of calcium and other synergistic trace minerals. The body maintains the blood at a given pH, and this is senior to having the calcium stored in bones, so if the body doesn't get enough calcium to maintain the proper blood pH, calcium is pulled out of bones and they shrink in size. Then gums recede, and teeth get loose.

The primary reason for calcium deficiency (which requires the body to get its serum calcium from the bones, teeth, etc.) is due to excessive calcium being excreted in the urine! Why?
