Can you identify this book?

In the 1950s or 1960s, I read a science fiction paperback book that is haunting me. Here are my vague impressions. A family who may have traveled back in time; I remember the mother had her children use sewing thread to floss their teeth, something about a girl with butterfly wings being surprised while at a forest pool, Tesla and perhaps giant turbine engines, a greenhouse, humans being transmogrified, and an overall sense of threat or danger.
