Chewing gum may help people achieve proper oral health

Chewing on certain brands of gum may be a cost-efficient way for people to prevent cavities, along with regular brushing and dentist visits.  Dental health is not easy for everyone to achieve, especially if an individual cannot afford proper care. Luckily, along with affordable dental plans, there are many low-cost products on the market that can help people maintain clean teeth and avoid problems such as cavities.

Recently, experts brought together by the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs said that sugar-free candy and gum that contain xylitol or polyol combinations, and a prescription varnish with chlorhexidine and thymol could be effective in preventing cavities.

Along with potentially boosting an individual's dental health, the expert panel acknowledged the possible benefits of these snacks in their official report because they are sugar-free. Researchers stressed that having a proper diet is important to ensure oral health and clean teeth.

"This panel acknowledges the oral and systemic benefits of lowering the quantity and frequency of sugar consumption and encourages practitioners to provide dietary counseling," experts said.
