Chewing gum and kids: Yeah or Nay?

February 4, 2014

In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month (February) we asked our hygienists:

Chewing gum and kids. Yeah or Nay?

Christina: I think gum is OK as long as it is sugarless and you don’t dispose of it on the ground or on the furniture.  Xylitol (a type of sugar) found in many gums has been shown to reduce decay when used in certain amounts.
