Teach Your Smile About Chewing Gum

Posted .


To enhance your oral health care and keep your smile running smoothly, it’s always a good idea to look for products and treatments that can lower your risk of dental damage. Due to oral health risks associated with harmful acids in your mouth, it is important to make sure saliva production is always at its peak. By chewing sugarless gum after meals, you can help form additional saliva in your mouth.

Chewing gum is extremely beneficial for your smile because it helps produce additional saliva. Saliva is a naturally occurring substance in your mouth which will wash away food and other debris and can be used to neutralize acids produced by bacteria in your mouth. Also, it can provide disease-fighting substances throughout your mouth to help with your oral health care. Furthermore, saliva can be used to help treat and prevent heartburn.

Heartburn occurs as an oral health condition in which stomach acid travels up your esophagus and into your mouth. If left untreated, these acids can lead to dental erosion by chewing through your tooth enamel. Chewing gum can help promote the formation of additional saliva to help treat and prevent heartburn and its harmful effects. Furthermore, chewing gum is extremely beneficial for your smile when other dental tools such as brushing should not be used. This is typically prevalent after eating when your teeth might be under the effects of heightened tooth sensitivities. However, make sure you always use chewing gum that is free of sugars, as sugars can lead to additional oral health problems.
