Gum Can Help Keep Your Mouth Cleaner Between Brushing

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
For anyone who has enjoyed a spicy meal, or one heavily laden with garlic, gum is often a quick fix for halitosis. Gum is also a great way to strengthen your jaw, and to help stay awake. While these are a few of the benefits of gum, it can also help to maintain your oral health. Health Benefits of Gum Gum contributes to your oral health in several different ways. It is important to make sure that you are chewing the right gum, however, to reap these benefits. Despite its many tasty flavors, bubble gum is often loaded with sugar. This sugar has the potential to be detrimental to your oral health. When left on your teeth, the sugars in these brands can contribute to an increase in bacteria and plaque. Both of these are dangerous to the teeth and impact oral health. Sugar free gum rather, than a very sweet bubble gum, is preferred for oral health benefits. When choosing a chewing gum, try and reach for the brands that indicate their approval by dentists. This is generally denoted with a stamp or crest. Chewing sugar free gum between meals can help to decrease your risk of oral health decay. When chewing gum your body naturally increases saliva production. This helps to wash away harmful acids that may attach to tooth plaque. This increase in saliva also helps to increase helpful mineral deposits in the mouth. These minerals help to strengthen enamel and protect from further breakdown. While chewing sugar free gum after a meal won't damage your teeth, it is always best to have your oral health questions and concerns answered by a licensed dentist! Come on in and have our experienced practitioners answer any questions you may have! Our dentists are also able to make specific recommendations based on your unique oral health....
