January 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #98: Chew Your Way to Healthy Teeth

Tip of the Week

You can actually chew your way to good health with sugarless gum. Although the sugar content in most gums can be brutal on your enamel and cause tooth decay, chewing sugarless gum after meals can stimulate your mouth to produce saliva which, in turn, reduces the acidity in your mouth and the damage that food will do to your enamel.

If you're an employer, a cheap way to supplement your company's group dental plan, or to make up somewhat for not having one, is to make sure there's some sugarless gum around for your employees to chew on after meals. What's more, it could also help supplement any anti-smoking program your company might be offering.
