Sugar-free gum could be an easy and effective addition to oral health routines. While brushing for two minutes, twice a day is still the best way to keep teeth clean and healthy, for anyone over the age of seven, chewing sugar-free gum during the day can be extremely effective in breaking down lingering food, neutralizing harmful plaque acids and reducing the risk of decay.
Chewing sugar-free gum after eating and drinking increases the production of saliva, which helps to wash away food particles and neutralize harmful plaque acids which, over time, can weaken teeth and lead to tooth decay. It also promotes the remineralization of tooth enamel.
