Chewing Gum Is it Good for You

  1. 1. The health benefits of gum chewing are under debate.  Professionals feel it's uncouth.
  2. 2.  Teachers think it's disrespectful.  And some are just worried about where it's going to end up (like under a table or desk).
  3. 3. When it comes to whether or not chewing gum is good for your oral health, though, you can rest assured that so long as it's sugarless, it can be good for you.
  4. 4. In this article we will discuss  the benefits of gum chewing and  the science behind it.
  6. 6. For those who have dieted it is common to substitute gum for other sweets and snacks.
  7. 7. Naturally, the many flavors of Trident are not a match for a box of Ferraro Rocher chocolates!
  8. 8. But, with some willpower and a steady supply, gum might just do the trick when it comes to keeping all that sugar away from your teeth and gums.
  10. 10. When chewing gum a person increases saliva production. Saliva washes away any acidic substances in one's mouth.
  11. 11. Acid from various foods slowly wears away the enamel that protects our teeth, so this is very positive benefit.
  13. 13. Lastly, anyone who has chewed gum knows that it gets food out of teeth. To illustrate, the following is a true story…
  14. 14. Madison Avenue dynamo David Khasidy brought his son River to the dentist one day. River sat in the chair to have his teeth inspected when his father said, “Spit out your gum, my little solnyshko".
  15. 15. Young River obliged, and on the tiny piece of pink rubbery gum were bits of brown specks. It seemed that River's sweet little babushka had given him a box of Cracker Jack, and the gum had succeeded in getting a good deal of its caramel remnants off his teeth.
  16. 16. This is one reason so many people feel better having gum instead of mints after a meal. While a mint can be refreshing, chewing gum clears the scene.
  18. 18. Please note that this is not an endorsement for any one company!
  19. 19. So, for those wanting to know which gum is safe, the following are some good choices:  Pür gum  Simply Gum  Spry
  20. 20. These are chosen simply for having very few ingredients and no chemicals. The Simply brand can be found in most grocery stores in the same aisle as the more upscale coconut bars and sun butter cups.
  21. 21. For those gums found at checkout with other impulse- buy items, you can be comfortable with one of these:  Dentyne  Eclipse
  22. 22.  Bubble yum  Extra  Mentos Sugar Free Gum  Ice breakers
  23. 23. In closing, it should go without saying that, while there are benefits to chewing gum, there are also benefits of drinking water.
  24. 24. While saliva can wash out the acid that may be sitting on your teeth, water can replace soda and sugary juices without adding more sugar to your diet.
  25. 25. Having said that, chewing gum is a good way to keep your mouth feeling fresh and clean between brushing and flossing.
  26. 26. If you are seeking professional dental advice, it's time to call Shumway Dental Care.
  27. 27. Their Chandler dentists will ask you questions, examine you, and determine exactly what needs to be done to get you back to normal.
