not sure if the subject is paleo related. i mean, in paleo times people didnt go to the dentist every 6 monthes to remove their teeth's plaque...im not sure they even brushed their teeth at all. plaque is also a natural compound. so should you go to the dentist as often to remove it or is it actually protects your teeth?
just for the record i brush daily :)
While I can't explain the nuances of plaque, I think this is a good example of taking "is this paleo" too far. One guy posted on here that he doesn't shower anymore because it's not paleo... No I try not to overuse soaps and unnatural substances but I get wet and freshen up every day.
Eating a clean paleo diet makes brushing after every meal unnecessary. There's nothing wrong with brushing and flossing once or twice a day though.
The other thing is environmental and developmental. My girlfriend, for instance, ate a fairly traditional diet in her youth (filipino) and her teeth are AMAZING. Just saying, if anyone could get away without brushing it'd be folks like her. My teeth, on the other hand, are prone to getting things stuck between them and my enamel isn't the strongest. I definitely need to brush.
Also, your breath stinks. Go brush your teeth!
