Yes! Chewing sugar-free gum right after eating is a great way to prevent tooth decay. Chewing gum increases saliva production in your mouth which helps clear away food particles, neutralize some of the acids that can erode your teeth, and ridding your mouth of the bacteria that can cause cavities and gum diseases.

While chewing gum after eating is a great habit to help prevent cavities, you NEED to make sure it’s sugar-free, otherwise you may be doing more harm then good. And, make sure you visit the dentist for regular teeth cleaning to help keep you teeth strong and bright.
