Jen: I’m a constant gum chewer. Is chewing gum bad for your teeth?

Megan: Type of gum is the first thought that comes to mind for my answer. On the one hand chewing gum with sugar can increase the risk for cavities, but chewing sugar free gum can increase the risk for tooth decay. Chewing gum can clean the plaque on your teeth, it can increase saliva production which can alleviate dry mouth, reduce bath breath, and it can increase the pH in your mouth. The health of your teeth and gums, frequency, duration, and type of gym all come into play. Different people have different reactions. Some people even have increased gas when they chew come because of the extra air they take in when chewing. Gum is certainly a better alternative to other cravings for flavors and foods we want. Read labels and brush your teeth and more than likely you won’t have bad effects from chewing gum.
