Chewing Trident Sugar Free Gum Reduces Cavity Risk



Happy Friday! In case you haven't heard, clinical studies show that chewing Trident sugar free gum for 20 minutes after meals reduces cavity risk. Chewing sugar free gum increases salivation and saliva helps to keep teeth healthy. A neutralizer in the mouth, saliva maintains a pH level of 7.4. This slightly alkaline value contributes to saliva's ability to remineralize tooth structure and fight cavity causing bacteria. Drinking fluoridated water throughout the day also aids in keeping a healthy environment inside the mouth. For optimal oral health it is recommended to brush, floss, rinse and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups.
