What to Expect During Childhood
A wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars per quadrant of the human dentition. It is the most posterior (most distal) of the three. Wisdom teeth generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth (a third molar in each of the four quadrants), but it is possible to have fewer or more, in which case the extras are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or “coming in sideways”. They are often extracted when this occurs.
Calcium is a key component for building strong bones, as you probably know, and milk products are loaded with it. In fact, just 1 cup of milk provides almost 300 milligrams of calcium. But that’s not all; dairy products keep your teeth as healthy as your bones throughout your life. So, is milk good for your teeth? The answer is a resounding yes, and here’s why.
Smiling slows the heart and relaxes the body. This lets the heart work without overworking. People who smile and laugh often are less likely to develop heart disease. Smiling also temporarily reduces blood pressure.
Stress is a common problem in the modern world that causes a myriad of health problems. Stress relief may be as simple as smiling a little more throughout the day. Smiling releases endorphins that counteract and diminish the stress hormones

The Fourth Floor has two additional dental chairs, one reserved for children dentistry with a play area and the other a more spacious dental operatory with the possibility of accommodating clients having more complex dental procedures.
Special care was taken in designing this facility, to optimally deliver the best possible services to all our patients, this office is geared to be fully paperless, with a full gigabit network, connecting all our internal computers and simultaneously connected to a live database sharing between both our locations (Sindhi Muslim & Shahbaz), so we can jointly manage all our patients records as a unified service, all previous history, x-rays & database accessible a mere mouse click away.

Calcium helps protect your teeth against gum (periodontal) disease and keeps your jaw bone strong and healthy.
Since women are more likely to get gum disease if they don’t absorb enough calcium from their daily diet, it’s especially important for everyone to eat and drink plenty of calcium–rich foods.
Drinking 1% low–fat or nonfat (skim) milk will help you gain the most nutrients without the extra artery–clogging fat of 2% or whole milk.
It goes without saying that Islam is a religion which pays attention to the cleanliness, decency, and the good appearance and smell of its adherents. Muslims are recommended to appear decent and clean. They also are to keep their mouth clean by using a brush or miswak
Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto states
It is absolutely fine to brush one’s teeth in the morning with toothpaste while fasting so long as one takes care not to swallow the paste. Toothpaste is not intended for consumption. Fast is only broken when it goes directly into our system. To say that one cannot use toothpaste is nothing but rigidity
The eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, adds,
If anything reaches the stomach, it breaks one’s fast according to the majority of Muslim jurists. If one is cautious and brushes his teeth and out of forgetfulness some traces of the toothpaste reach his stomach, he is not sinful, as Allah forgives the mistakes of Muslims that are made unintentionally
While the renowned scholar Zakir Naik had this to say on the specific question
