Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel -- for real???

I've been reading Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel recently and am trying to work out whether his theories are just completely crackpot or whether there is in fact any evidence to back him up.

Basically, he seems to be maintaining that (a) sugars don't rot our teeth because they rot our teeth, but because they mess with blood sugar level and stop you absorbing calcium and (b) the modern diet doesn't give us the nutrients necessary to maintain our teeth, and that if you eat a diet rich in certain fairly specialised food and completely lacking in refined foods,  you can not only stop your teeth decaying but go some way towards restoring them.

Before I write the guy off as a total quack and dispose of the book, though, I'd like your opinions.  How accurate is his science?  Is there any basis in it or is it total snake oil?
