Focus Your Smile on Chewing Gum

Posted .


In order to ensure optimum oral health, employ oral health care routines into your daily life that will include chewing sugarless gum after meals to help produce additional saliva. This can be very helpful to your oral health, and your overall health.

Keeping your smile safe often depends on adequate oral health care and hygiene routines to help promote the formation of additional saliva. By chewing sugarless gum for a period of roughly 20 minutes after meals, you can increase your saliva formation in your mouth and help neutralize harmful acids and wash away food debris or bacteria that may be present in your mouth.

To keep your smile safe from dental dangers such as heartburn, try chewing sugarless gum to help produce saliva, which works to neutralize harmful acids in your mouth. When stomach acids produced by heartburn reach your mouth, they will eat through your tooth enamel if your saliva is not present to help wash the debris away. That is why chewing sugarless gum is vital to your oral health.

Keeping your smile safe includes taking all necessary steps to use effective cleaning treatments whenever possible. At certain times of the day, it might not always be a good idea to use ideal cleaning tools such as brushing and flossing. This is because your teeth may be extremely sensitive and prone to dental abrasion. To avoid toothpaste potentially damaging your tooth enamel, try using alternative cleaning products such as mouthwash or sugarless gum after eating.
