Harmful bacteria that cause gum disease and cavities feed on food particles trapped in your mouth. Saliva helps wash some of those particles away so the bacteria don’t grow out of control. That’s why sugarless gum is good for your teeth. It promotes the production of saliva to help keep your mouth cleaner.
However, you can still get cavities. Worse, you probably won’t feel them growing in your teeth. That’s why you need to call our Racine, WI dental office at 262-417-7326 and schedule your next dental exam. Our Racine dentists have the expertise and people skills to help protect your teeth while making you feel welcome and respected.
