Supplement your oral health care with sugarless gum. Your oral health care can benefit from additional treatments beyond brushing and flossing. Studies have shown that by chewing sugarless gum for a period of roughly 20 minutes, preferably after eating, it can create saliva and help neutralize acids and prevent cavities. For more astonishing benefits that chewing sugarless gum can offer, see the list below:

– Sugarless gum can be used to help wash away chewy or sticky debris that ends up clinging to your teeth and gums after meals.

– Sugarless gum can also be used to help fight the effects of heartburn and protect 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. Do not brush after meals due to an increase in tooth sensitivity. Instead, try using sugarless gum.
