Chewing Gum is Bad for Your Teeth...Or is it?

dentist in coral gables

Did you know that clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
When you chew sugarless gum you increase the flow of saliva, which washes away food and other debris, neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and provides disease-fighting substances throughout the mouth. Another added benefit of Increased saliva flow is that it also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel. Chewing gum with sugar in it also increases saliva flow, but it also contains sugar which is used by plaque bacteria to produce decay-causing acids. That is why we suggest sugar-free gum that is sweetened by non-cavity causing sweeteners such as aspartame, xylitol, sorbitol or mannitol. 
Chewing sugarless gum is good for your teeth, but it is not a replacement for regular brushing and flossing. It’s not a substitute. We still recommend brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and cleaning plaque from between your teeth once a day with dental floss or other interdental cleaners.
We also recommend regular dental cleanings and exams at our office.
