Is gum chewing safe for the mouth?

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Life Long Dental
Is gum chewing safe for the mouth?Chewing gum is healthy for the teeth as long as the gum is not sugary. Chewing gum has health benefits to the teeth and you will have strong jaws as you chew gum. Our dentist will teach you on health benefits of chewing gum.

Xylitol for the teeth

Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in chewing gums and it helps in the prevention of cavities. The xylitol helps in neutralizing acid that erodes the teeth' enamel and it keeps the enamel stronger. Ensure that you get sugarless gum so that you will not have dental cavities. Always read the package when you are purchasing gum to ensure that you get the right gum for the teeth.

Bad breath

When you chew sugar-free gum the teeth will be protected and you will not have cavities. Sugar feeds bad bacteria in the mouth and this is why you need to eat sugar-free gum. Chewing gum is good for the teeth and will keep away the bad bacteria that cause the bad breath in the mouth. When you have halitosis this can be because of the accumulation of food particles that have not been cleaned for long. They cause the tooth to decay and you will have bad breath. When you chew gum you produce a lot of saliva that washes away the food particles in the mouth hence reducing bad breath. Our dental team will ensure that you know what gum to chew so that you have a healthy and fresh mouth.
