Yes, Mom, the Dentist told me it is ok to chew sugarless gum!

Studies show that kids who chew sugarless gum have less cavities! Chewing gum increases the flow of saliva which decreases acidity in the mouth. The act of chewing helps clean plaque build-up.
What types of sugarless gum do our Naperville Dentists recommend?  Look for gum with Xylitol, a natural sweetener that actually has some qualities to protect teeth from cavities.
Be sure to ask your dental hygienist at your next visit to our convenient Naperville office, we would be happy to let you know our favorite gum!
