To Chew Or Not To Chew In Lansdale

To Chew Or Not To Chew In Lansdale

Hello Lansdale gum chewers, today we’re going to talk about that sticky wad in your mouth. You know that it can freshen your breath, but can it really help preserve your smile from tooth decay?

It really depends on the type of gum. Chewing regular sucrose-based gum can be beneficial in removing bits of food from the surface of teeth, but that benefit is negated by the stream of sugar washing over your teeth as you chew.

However, gum with some alternative sweeteners has an added benefit for your pearly whites. Xylitol is a sweetener which not only has fewer calories than traditional sugars, but it also has antimicrobial properties that lessen plaque build-up. This means that xylitol inhibits the growth of bacteria that causes cavities.

So if you’re headed out to any restaurants in the Lansdale area, bring a pack of sugar-free gum with you and pop it in your mouth when your meal is done. Of course, brushing and flossing are the best practices for your oral health, but when you can’t brush, decide on a sugarless gum with xylitol.

We are Dr. Kevin Bass and Lawrence Black of Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. We offer cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and dental implants. If you have any questions about how to beautify your oral health, or if you would like specifics about any of our cutting-edge cosmetic dental services such as teeth whitening, veneers, or complete smile transformations, give us a call today at 267-498-5297.
