Are you looking forward to a wonderful holiday season filled with festive treats and scrumptious sweets? If so, it may be a good idea to pack some sugarless gum in your daily oral health care kit. Although sugarless gum is not a form of oral health care, it does stimulate the production of saliva as you chew to wash away harmful bacteria and loosen food particles left behind after eating. Food stuck between teeth will still need to be flossed, and of course, you will still want to brush those pearly whites twice daily. This will ensure that you enjoy this festive season with a smile.
Did you know that the acids in your esophagus and stomach can damage your teeth? The good news is, studies have shown that sugarless gum can help prevent heartburn. This means that chewing sugarless gum can help protect your pearly whites from these harmful acids.
