Is Chewing Gum Bad For Teeth?


The Short Answer is No!

Some gums contain ingredients that can reduce cavities as well as heal areas on the teeth where cavities are beginning. Chew on that!

Chewing sugarless gum is actually beneficial for your teeth because chewing helps dislodge food which may have gotten stuck to your teeth.

Chewing gum also increases the saliva flow to buffer (neutralize) mouth acids. Saliva helps wash foods from the mouth and lessens the effects of acids, which can harm teeth and cause cavities.
