    Correct Answer
    A. Brush
    Explanation
    A brush is indispensable when cleaning the teeth because it helps remove plaque, food particles, and bacteria from the surface of the teeth. Brushing with a toothbrush helps to physically scrub the teeth and gums, promoting good oral hygiene and preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Water and toothpaste are also commonly used during toothbrushing, but the brush itself is the essential tool for effective cleaning. Sodium Peborate is not a commonly used substance for oral hygiene and is not necessary for cleaning the teeth.

    Explanation
    Calcium is the most important mineral present in teeth because it plays a crucial role in the formation and maintenance of strong and healthy teeth. Calcium is a key component of tooth enamel, the outer protective layer of the teeth, and helps to strengthen and mineralize it. It also helps in the development of the jawbone, which supports the teeth. Additionally, calcium is essential for proper nerve function and muscle contraction, including the muscles involved in chewing. Therefore, a sufficient intake of calcium is necessary for maintaining optimal dental health.

Unlike the other types of teeth, molars have a larger surface area and multiple cusps, which help in breaking down food into smaller pieces. Due to their size and function, molars are essential for proper digestion and maintaining oral health.
