No word for toothache

At the museum I watched an old video from the early 1900’s called No word for toothache. It was about why Eskimos back then didn’t have the dental problems Western people did. I can’t find the actual video online, but at 6.32 mins in this video from 1949, you can see the reason why they had healthy teeth; they were constantly working with (and thus cleaning and stengthening) their teeth. They also didn’t eat sugar, generally only eating meat and fish, often raw.
