It will help, yet keep in mind the research of Dr. Weston Price. He studied peoples of isolated cultures. They were exceptionally healthy. They had straight teeth, no impacted wisdom teeth, no decay or gum disease. They had NO toothbrushes, NO dental floss, NO toothpaste. They also had no access to our western foods such as sugar, refined white flour, soda pop, candy, etc. Diet is the key.
