Just from the fact the MK4 is taken in milligrams and MK7 in micrograms, it seems that MK4 is safer. Also, I read on another forum that MK7 doesn't have that effect on teeth.

No one is "bullet proof". Do the things that support healing; rest, hydration, and eat nutrient dense foods. Paleo may mean fewer or shorter illnesses, but it may not mean zero illness. Slipping back into SAD eating sure won't do any good!
