Why Is Sugar-Free Gum Better?
Orbit Spearmint Sugar-Free Gum gives you a chewing gum that is better than sugar-containing gums for a variety of reasons. This Orbit Spearmint Gum is approved by the American Dental Association® in its ability to fight off tooth decay and gum disease. Sugared gum does not do this because the sugars in the gum lead to increased risk for tooth decay. Sugar-free gum uses the natural sweetener xylitol to avoid this increased risk for tooth decay that sugar-containing gums provide.
How Does Sugar Cause Tooth Decay?
Because Orbit Spearmint Sugar-Free Gum does not use sugar as its sweetener, it does not cause tooth decay. But how does sugar cause tooth decay, anyway? When sugar is consumed through a food or beverage, it causes a buildup of bacteria in the mouth that produce acids. The acids produced by these bacteria are what dissolve and damage the enamel on your teeth. Regular loss of tooth enamel can lead to cavities and oral health problems. Chewing sugar-free gum after meals helps stimulate the flow of your saliva, which leads to a reduction in the amount of harmful acids in your mouth. This is something sugared gum cannot do for your oral health. Sugar-free spearmint gum also helps you with dry mouth and bad breath for the same reason: stimulating extra saliva. Bad breath and dry mouth are commonly caused by a lack of saliva flow in the mouth and chewing this gum will help you to stimulate more saliva. Stimulating more saliva may help to reduce the symptoms you experience with dry mouth and bad breath. Plus, it helps that the gum has an extra spearmint gum flavor to help provide your mouth with a fresh, minty scent.
This sugar-free bubble gum comes in convenient packaging so that you can take it with you whenever you're on the go. If you need a quick freshener after a meal, this convenient gum helps get the job done.
