Toothpastes, Rinses, and Chewing Gums
Surprisingly, of all the products available, chewing gum may hold the greatest promise for reducing tooth decay. Sugar-free gums can stimulate saliva, which in turn can reduce plaque-causing bacteria. And new ingredients in certain gums may have even more effects. The gums tend to have a very strong flavor to cover up the less pleasant active ingredients and they do cost more than ordinary chewing gum. If you are at high risk of dental trouble, then these gums are probably beneficial.
