There is a fair bit of lactose in milk and yoghurt, so perhaps those would be best avoided during the tooth decay phase. However, heavy cream, aged cheese and, as Hannah said, butter and ghee, have little to no lactose so are not a problem. Furthermore, I remember reading somewhere (forgot where!) that it seems cheese may actually form a protective coating on the teeth that reduces bacterial colonisation.

The lactose shouldn't be a problem with butter and ghee.

What about dairy products ? Lactose and all.

Clove is a natural antiseptic and anesthetic- I discovered this while cooking.

I think arresting tooth decay is pretty tough, but the blog post Melissa suggests is a great start. I know my gums became healthier after taking Weston Price inspired butter oil and cod liver oil.

If you have a bad case of active tooth decay that you want to reduce/eliminate (and I speak from experience, having completely reversed a tooth abscess without dentist intervention) then I would say it is paramount to completely eliminate ALL forms of sugar until the tooth decay is under control. That means no refined sugar, no fruit, no starchy vegetables, no tubers (potatoes etc.), no cereals (fermented, sprouted or otherwise), basically anything that can turn to a significant amount of sugar in your mouth. Certain raw vegetables should be OK but some of them, like carrots and tomatoes, have a fair bit of sugar too so don't abuse.

Besides this, make sure to get plenty of good fats like butter (from grassfed cows if possible), cheese, and in particular coconut oil which has antibacterial properties. Perhaps consider oil pulling.

Avoid chewing on hard, crunchy stuff until your tooth decay settles down. It'll just worsen the pain and the strain on gums and tooth ligaments.

Herbs and such: I don't know many of these but I do know that cloves have antiseptic and painkilling properties, and have been tradionally used to soothe toothache. Back in my pre-paleo days when I had a tooth infection I used to rub some powdered clove onto the affected gum and it would reduce the pain for a couple of hours. Not sure if it helps attack the root (pardon the pun) cause but at least it's a natural way to make toothache less excruciating.

Let us know if this works for you. Are you going to supplement with the recommended calcium or eat/drink dairy? I pretty much eat exactly how his diet is laid out (minus the fermented grains or soaked beans) but w/out the calcium. I got my first plaque in my life this past year but also used natural toothpaste for the first time. Still no cavities though.
