Chewing sugar-free Gum Helps Keep Mouths Healthy
We all know sugar-free gum tastes great and freshens our breath, but did you also know that it is good for your teeth? Chewing sugar-free gum after meals has proven benefits for oral health.
Chewing sugar-free gum after meals helps:
- Stimulate saliva flow
- Neutralize plaque acids
- Maintain proper pH
- Promote tooth remineralization
- Clear food debris
Chewing sugar-free gum, especially after eating and drinking during the day, is a simple step to improving your oral healthcare.
And, remember, while chewing sugar-free gum is beneficial, it does not replace brushing and flossing. It is important to remember to maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing at least twice per day and flossing at least once per day.
Wrigley’s has been researching the oral care benefits of chewing sugar-free gum since the 1930s. Their dedicated science and technology team continues to conduct research into the oral-care benefits of chewing. They also partner with national dental associations and dental professionals worldwide to support this research, promote oral health education and support better access to oral care.
Wrigley’s Orbit® and Extra® sugar-free chewing gums were the first chewing gums to be awarded the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
