Pick the right gum!

January 19, 2019

Many may say gum, just like any other candy do nothing good except harm your teeth and leave you with cavities. This may be true in many cases, however, if you take the time and read the packaging labels, there are certain gums that can actually benefit your teeth!

 

Tip: look for these ingredients

  • Sugarless gum 

    • ​Research has shown that chewing gum can actually benefit the health of your teeth by removing food particles from the surfaces and gaps of your teeth, which can in turn help prevent cavities. 
       

  • Xylitol 

    • Chewing is even more effective when paired with gums that include xylitol, which is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that can help fight oral bacteria along with cavities.
       

  • Recaldent 

    • ​Recaldent is known to aid in the progression of tooth decay by promoting stronger tooth enamel which can protect your teeth against oral bacteria. 

 

 

Make sure to grab a pack of sugarless, cavity-preventing gum the next time you visit the market!
