Types of Gum You Should Stick With When Combatting Gum Disease
Posted on 8/30/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
People of all ages chew gum. Parents love to remind their children that if they are always chewing gum they will damage their teeth. It is true that chewing gum is not always the healthiest choice, but it is also true that there are benefits to chewing gum. A person dealing with gum disease can actually help themselves by chewing gum. The thing they need to know is how it will help and what type of gum is the right choice. The Benefits of Chewing Gum When people chew gum they help themselves control their weight. It can help people with concentration and memory. It is helpful in relieving stress and anxiety. Most importantly, it can improve the health of the teeth. Gum chewing can protect the teeth and the gums. It does this by increasing the flow of saliva. The increased saliva production helps remove the acid and other harmful things from the teeth and gums. It also protects the teeth of people who smoke. Chewing gum is one of the habits that people use to top smoking. The less a person smokes, the less damage they do to their teeth and gum. Of course, a person will not help themselves combat gum disease and other problems with their teeth if all they do is grab a pack of sugary gum and stick it in their mouth. If they chew gum from the time they wake up until they go to sleep, they will end up causing more harm than good. Like anything else, the key is moderation and the right choice of gum. The answer to the question of what type of gum involves a few things. The first is to choose a sugar-free gum. Sugar-free gum that uses the sweetener Xylitol is one of the best options. The sweetener helps slow down the growth of bacteria. Another ingredient to look for in gum is calcium lactate. This has minerals that help build up the enamel on teeth. For more information about how to protect your teeth and gums and what types of product including chewing gum will help you, take a minute and contact our offices....

The important thing to keep in mind at this point is to schedule an appointment with us immediately if you begin to experience any of these symptoms.
