Oral Health Benefits of Chewing SugarFree Gums


Did you know that chewing sugarfree gums does not only help freshen your breath? It can also contribute to better oral health.

How Did Chewing Gum Start?

Chewing gums have been around since the ancient times. Mayans would chew sap of chicle or sapodilla tree. Greeks, meanwhile, would reach for a sap from the mastiche or mastic tree. Today, chewing gum has evolved as a mixture of various synthetic materials.

Ingredients usually include artificial sweeteners, flavorings, and softeners. You may be asking, is it safe? Long as the chewing gum has the ADA seal, then you can have peace of mind knowing it’s good for your oral health.

A chewing gum is awarded the ADA seal once its satisfies requirements set by the organization. The chewing gum should show effectiveness in helping reduce cavities among others.

Also, the manufacturer should be able to present results of laboratory results in humans. Please note that ADA only recognises sugarless gums. This is because sweeteners used in making them do not contribute to cavity.

Benefits of Chewing Sugarfree Gums

Is Chewing Gum an Alternative to Brushing or Flossing?

Chewing sugarless gums can help keep our teeth clean but it should not be deemed a substitute to brushing or flossing. Brushing and flossing are crucial to keeping oral health in good condition.
