Chewing Gum That's Good for Teeth
gum
 
Gum gets a bad reputation. Sure, there are some gums packed with sugar that are bad for your teeth. 
 
But if you look for gum with the American Dental Association (ADA) seal, it is actually good for your oral health. 
 
Benefits of ADA-Approved Chewing Gum:
  • The physical act of chewing tends to increase salivary flow. If you chew sugarless gum after eating, the increased salivary flow can help neutralize and wash away the acids that are produced when food is broken down by the bacteria in plaque on your teeth.

  • Over time, acid can break down tooth enamel, creating the conditions for decay. Increased saliva flow also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel.

  • Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
