After meals, it is important to always make sure your teeth are clean. However, brushing your teeth after meals can have negative consequences as your teeth are often extra sensitive during this time. As an alternative, consider a substitute cleaning product such as chewing sugarless gum.

If you wish to greatly enhance your smile, look no further than chewing gum to help eliminate food particles, plaque buildup, and other damaging substances from your teeth and gums. Oftentimes, overly sticky or chewy foods can linger on your teeth long after consumption. However, chewing sugarless gum has been shown to help eliminate these substances and provide a healthier atmosphere for your smile to thrive.

Chewing sugarless gum is extremely effective for preventing cavities due to the fact it has saliva producing capabilities. Saliva is a natural substance in your mouth that can help neutralize harmful acids and provide disease-fighting substances for your smile. Chewing sugarless gum has also been proven to help safely clean teeth at times of extreme tooth sensitivity.
