Did you know that adopting the simple dental hygiene habit of chewing sugar-free gum after every eating and drinking occasion is an essential and convenient way of looking after our oral health while on the go. Chewing sugar-free gum washes away food debris, helps to neutralises damaging plaque acids and remineralises tooth enamel by stimulating the flow of saliva which helps protect teeth throughout the day, helping to prevent dental erosion. Every year as a nation we spend millions of pounds on dental treatment that can often be prevented. By brushing twice a day, cutting down on sugary foods and drinks, visiting the dentist as often as they recommend and chewing sugar-free gum, we can help reduce the amount of invasive and expensive treatment we put ourselves through.
