Depends: Stenosis is narrowing of the channel in the spinal where the nerves are. It may be silent or it may cause leg symptoms (ache, pain, numbness, tingling, weakness), usually with walking or standing, relieved with sitting or bending forward. Surgery is very helpful when the leg symptoms are severe, limiting a person's activities. Milder symptoms may respond to exercises, injections, medication.

Tooth replacement.: Oranges are fine if it doesn't give you burning sensation. Teeth replacement options depend on the area and span of missing teeth depending on which you can either have implant prosthesis or bridge on adjacent teeth or removable dentures. Cost of treatment in descending order : implants>bridge>dentures. But various other factors have to be considered which cannot be generalized in one answer.

Should not be a : Problem. Best solution is a dental implant - keep a one tooth problem a one tooth problem. Bridges are an option but requires cutting two healthy teeth into nubs to cement a bridge. A removable partial denture is another option. Sadly implants are expensive with or without insurance - dental insurance is truly a joke anyway! an implant will be your best bet over the duration of your life.
