Did you know that chewing sugarless gum can help keep your mouth healthy and disease-free? It’s true: chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva, which rinses away food particles and the bacteria that produce damaging acids. It’s a great way to keep your teeth and gums clean throughout the day when you don’t have access to your toothbrush. Avoid gum with sugar, though, which will do more harm than good to your dental health. Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about the benefits of sugarless gum.
