In honor of Bubble Gum Day today, here are some gum facts from the American Dental Association to chew on for good oral health care.
Chewing sugarless gum:
- Can protect and strengthen teeth
- Increases saliva which helps remove food and reduce levels of acid in your mouth
- Helps prevent tooth decay
- Helps minimize bad breath
Look for sugarless gum that has the ADA Seal. Just a reminder that chewing gum does not replace brushing and flossing. It’s important to continue brushing twice daily and flossing once a day for a healthy smile.
