Chewing gum - is there any benefit and what is it? Let's take a closer look at this issue today.
🔹 Before using chewing gum, make sure that the composition does not contain sugar, glucose or fructose - otherwise, chewing gum will only harm. It is these substances that are readily consumed by bacteria that live in plaque - and instead of protecting against caries, you can get a completely opposite effect.
🔸If xylitol is indicated as a sugar substitute in the composition or sorbitol - chewing gum will be safer for dental health.
🔹However, chewing gum does not protect teeth from tooth decay.
The only thing it can do is help: increase salivation and mechanically cleanse the oral cavity from food debris.
🔸 Chewing gum will not be able to whiten teeth either, but it will partially cope with plaque. Although a toothbrush will do this much more efficiently.
🔹 For a while, chewing gum can mask bad breath, but if this problem has been bothering you for a long time, masking alone is not enough. , you need a doctor's consultation.
🔸 You can chew gum only after eating, no more than 15 minutes.
🔹Not forget to brush your teeth in the morning and in the evening - using chewing gum does not negate brushing your teeth!
👉 Conclusions: chewing gum does not have miraculous properties, but with the right choice and use, it can be useful be quite real.
The main thing is not to forget about regular visits to the dentist!
