I think some studies need to be done. But it appears from my personal observation that probiotics like unpasteurized milk and cheese or Kefir have some sort of positive affect on oral health.
Freedom from gum disease and cavities is very important both to our personal health and to the smell of our breath – not to mention our wallets.
What I noticed is that when I was drinking unpasteurized milk, things were looking even better than usual for my gum tissue. Later in the season when unpasteurized milk was no longer available and after a period of time, I noticed a slight decline in the health of my gum tissue.
Then, finally, I felt sensitivity from one of my teeth. I knew that enough was enough and that I had to try unpasteurized foods again. No milk to be found. I went to the store and bought some unpasteurized cheese and Kefir.
I didn’t even bother to clean my teeth and took a nap. When I woke the sensitivity was so greatly reduced that it was virtually gone.
