Every moment you take in life is another opportunity to either damage your smile or protect it. Due to your teeth’s heightened sensitivity after eating, you should consider an interdental cleaning tool such as chewing gum to keep your smile clean without the dangers caused by overly abrasive toothpaste.

In order to protect your teeth and gums, using alternative cleaning tools can often prove extremely helpful. After eating, your teeth are extra sensitive and may require an alternative cleaning method beyond brushing, as toothpaste may be too abrasive at this time. One highly effective treatment to consider is chewing gum, which can help keep your teeth and gums safe.

When chewing sugarless gum after meals, saliva flow can increase and wash away food debris and other harmful acids. In addition, the substances in saliva can help neutralize acids and provide disease-fighting substances for your mouth. However, it is essential to use sugarless chewing gum, as traditional chewing gum may contain sugars that will negate the effects of any benefits that can that happen.

Sugarless chewing gum should never be used as an alternative to brushing and flossing. However, they can be used as a substitute during times when brushing may not be the best course of action. In addition, chewing gum is highly effective for protecting your teeth without being overly abrasive.
