ADA® Approved Sweet Mint Gum
Orbit Gum Sweet Mint is approved by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs for its ability to provide oral health benefits. According to the ADA, this sugar-free gum stimulates saliva flow to help prevent cavities by reducing acids and making teeth more resistant to tooth decay. The ADA recommends chewing sugar-free gum 20 minutes after a meal to provide these oral health benefits.
Why Chew Gum After Meals?
Orbit Gum Sweet Mint should be chewed after meals when brushing your teeth is not an available option. Because this gum comes in convenient packaging, you're able to take it with you whenever you're on the go. After you eat a meal or a snack, your teeth are more prone to the risk of acid attack. The acid in your mouth is produced by plaque bacteria and sugars in the food and drink you've just consumed. These acids slowly dissolve the enamel and dentine on your teeth, which eventually results in a cavity. Chewing sugar-free sweet mint gum helps to reduce the amount of acid produced in your mouth, thus reducing your risk for acid-related tooth decay.
How Is This Sugar-Free Gum Sweetened?
This mint chewing gum does not contain any added sugars for sweetened flavor, so where does it get its sweetness from? Sugar-free gum uses the natural sweetener called xylitol to achieve its naturally sweet flavor. Xylitol is naturally found in different types of berries, fruits, vegetables and mushrooms. The sweet flavor provided by xylitol is equal to that of sugar, without causing tooth decay like sugar does. Xylitol is usually sourced from birch bark to create the delicious flavors in your sugar-free gum without adding any sugars that can harm your oral and dental health.
