I don't have personal experience with this, but I do remember reading something here about oil pulling helping with gum health. Might want to research that.

I don't know if it is my imagination, but since I started eating a hardcore Paleo diet about 4 months ago, it seems to me that my teeth are in better shape.

Background: Growing up I had very few dental problems. Aside from one tiny cavity in high school, I had no problems. Fast forward to adulthood and free-choice of food, well, let's say my diet went downhill. Subsequently, I've spent the last 20 years a cavity or two filled everytime I went to the dentist. So I just avoided going :)

These past few months have helped and there are numerous articles out there explaining the science behind Paleo and dental health, so I won't do them the disservice by oversimplifying things, but they are readily available.
