Would you be surprised to know the American Dental Association has put their Seal of Acceptance on a pack of gum? That’s right! There are types of chewing gum that are actually healthy for your teeth. Chewing gum can help you fight gum disease and reduce the risk of cavities.
Sugar-free chewing gum is safe, healthy, and effective. This gum does not damage your teeth. In fact, it will help improve your oral health. When you chew gum, you increase the flow of saliva, which will wash away food particles, neutralize acid in your mouth, and strengthen tooth enamel. The best way to chew your gum is to pop it into your mouth after you eat, and chew the gum for about twenty minutes.
If you choose gum with the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, the gum will always be sugarless, so that is a great sign to tell you it is healthy for your teeth. The lack of sugar in the gum is healthy for your teeth and will promote a healthy smile that can ward off cavities.
Don’t forget, chewing gum will never replace the need for brushing and flossing regularly, but it can help you as you go throughout your day between meals.
