The dangers of tooth decay are well noted. Fortunately, there are many treatments that you can do from the comfort of your own home to prevent it. Cavities can be prevented by brushing at least two times per day and flossing daily to keep your mouth fresh and clean. In addition, there are many supplemental cleaning techniques that can also work, such as chewing sugarless gum.

Chewing sugarless gum after meals can immediately remove food particles and bacteria that seek to damage your teeth. It also removed sugars and harmful acids which seek to eat through your tooth enamel. Although chewing gum is capable of the same benefits, the presence of sugars makes them much less beneficial than sugarless gum.

Did you know that sugarless gum can also benefit your smile against heartburn? Sugarless gum aids in the protection and prevention of heartburn. Although heartburn features acids from the stomach often entering your mouth, sugarless gum can neutralize their effects on your teeth.
