Enhance your oral health with sugarless gum. And what can sugarless gum do for your smile? Studies report that chewing sugarless gum for a period of roughly 20 minutes after eating can create saliva, which in turn neutralizes acids and prevents cavities. For more of the amazing benefits that chewing sugarless gum can offer, see the list below:

– Sugarless gum can help wash away chewy or sticky food debris that can cling to the surfaces of your teeth and gums after meals.
– Sugarless gum can help battle the effects of heartburn and defend your teeth from harmful acids that may travel up the esophagus.
– Only use sugarless gum if you are free of any jaw pain and do not have any TMJ disorders.
– When you eat, your teeth may become extra sensitive due to the acid in your mouth. Brushing directly after meals can aggravate this problem. Instead, you can try chewing sugarless gum.

Remember that sugarless gum should only be used as a supplementary tool to brushing and flossing, not a replacement.
