Chew sugar-free gum
Chew sugar-free gum. It is generally agreed these days that chewing gum is good for your teeth. This is because it encourages the production of saliva, which washes away sugars and neutralises acids, helping to prevent tooth decay. We recommend chewing gum for about 20 minutes after meals and snacks when it is not practical to clean your teeth, but emphasise it should not replace any aspect of routine dental hygiene. Sugar-free gum is generally considered to be best, but the differences between the various types are minimal and at the end of the day it depends which you prefer.
