Want to know why these are expensive? They are 100% xylitol, a natural product which comes from the birch tree and is very expensive!! But very effective! In this case you do get what you pay for!

Sugar free gum doesn’t contain sugar – the taste is added using xylitol which not only stimulates saliva flow (your secret dental health helper) and stops the bacteria that causes tooth decay from working to harm teeth.  Teeth are more at risk of tooth decay and acid erosion after eating or drinking. This time after eating/drinking is ‘high risk’ for the minerals of the teeth to dissolve and if sugar is present tooth decay can result   – if no sugar but acid present, acid erosion can result. If both sugary and acidic you can end up with a double whammy risk of both tooth decay AND acid erosion!

Saliva helps to remineralise tooth surfaces after an acid/sugar attack. If you have good saliva flow it can take up to 2 hours for the tooth surfaces to remineralise (harden). If you suffer from dry mouth and have poor saliva flow your risk of developing problems from acid/sugar attack are greater.

The image below from dentalhealth.org demonstrates how sugar free gum can speed up the hardening (remineralising) process.

When your mouth is dry (xerostomia) plaque biofilm can develop more rapidly and can increase the risk of gum inflammation and also bad breath. Regular use of sugar free chewing gum can help reduce symptoms of dry mouth. Learn more about dry mouth here.
