Daily Health Tips

Fruit for Healthy Teeth and Gums

Chewing unripe guava is an excellent tonic for teeth and gums. It stops the bleeding from gums due its styptic effect and richness in vitamin C. Chewing its tender leaves also helps in curing bleeding from gums and keeps the teeth healthy. A decoction of root-bark can also be beneficial used as mouth- wash for swollen gums. Lemon and lime are also useful in pyorrhoea due to their high vitamin C-content. They strengthen the gums and teeth and are very effective for preventing and curing acute inflammations of the gum margins.

Prepositions

Similarities


These are ways of saying that two or more things are similar, or have something the same.

Differences


These are ways of saying that two or more things are different.

Exceptions


When we make a general statement about things or people and then say that one thing or person is not included or is different from the others, we use these words and phrases:

Note: Except can be followed by different words (nouns, prepositions, etc.), but except for and apart from are followed by nouns or noun phrases.

Conditions


Here are some words/phrases which introduce or connect conditions. Like ‘if’, they are used with certain tenses, and the rules are quite difficult. For the moment, notice the tenses underlined in the examples, and use them in this way until you meet other examples.
