Can chewing sugarless gum help my oral health?

ANSWER

Chewing sugarless gum is actually god for your teeth as chewing helps dislodge food that becomes stuck to your teeth and also increases saliva flow to neutralize acids. Some gums contain ingredients that can reduce cavities as well as heal areas on the teeth where cavities are beginning.
