When you eat, food particles get trapped on your teeth and gums. They’re way too small to see, but they’re big enough to feed harmful bacteria in your mouth. As they feed and multiply, your risk of cavities and gum disease increase.

Saliva helps wash away some of this food, which is where sugarless gum comes in. As this video shows, sugarless gum can help get rid of those food particles and help you fight cavities and gum disease.

However, that’s not enough. You still need regular dental exams from our Lincroft dentist to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. That’s why you need to call our Lincroft, NJ dental office at 732-352-3903 for your next appointment.
