Weighing the Pros and Cons of Chewing Gum
Posted on 8/15/2019 by Dr. Chapko
When it comes to weighing the pros and cons of chewing gum, many think that this is extremely bad for your teeth. It is something that is causing you more problems than you'd probably like to know. However, when you choose a sugar-free chewing gum option, you don't have to worry about those bad things happening. Gum actually has many beneficial properties that come along with chewing it on a regular basis that you should be aware of. Benefits of Chewing GumHealthier teeth are one thing that you don't usually associate with chewing gum. When you are chewing, you're moving the plaque from the outside of the teeth. Additionally, chewing gum helps with the aid of saliva in the mouth. This cleans the mouth and helps remove bacteria. Reduce the amount of jaw pain that you experience when you exercise your jaw with gum. The repetitive chewing motions strengthen the jaw. Those that suffer from jaw issue might use gum to help them rehabilitate the jaw muscles and bones to reduce the amount of pain they're in. There are also downfalls of chewing gum, especially gum that has a high sugar content in it. This can break down the teeth and leave plaque on them. You want to choose a gum that has less sugar content. You shouldn't chew gum right after a filling or extraction, and you should be mindful of how often you're chewing it. If you want to have a cleaning and exam done to make sure your gum chewing is benefiting you and not being a downfall, give us a call today and we'd be more than happy to set up an appointment to meet with you and do the cleaning and exam. Everyone should have a healthier smile, regardless if you chew gum or not and we can help!...
