Does chewing gum help clean your teeth?

Yeah they clean your teeth. ur supposed to chew it a little while then spit it out. if u dont it can giving you cavities. that's what my dentist told me. but that didn't stop me. in fact im chewing gum now!!!!!!!!!!! =D

only some gum with special ingredients
can help clean your teeth it should say on the label if it clean your teeth

some say it it so.

answer mine?http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AvmWYV59Bo7BjWmDKHsElGTsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20090507183238AAMSCmn

some chewing gum does such as trident gum it says on the package helps clean teeth

sugary gum cause cavities but whitening cleans your teeth.. but that doesnt mean you shouldnt brush.. hope that helps.


There are gums [extra, orbit, eclipse] that are approved by dentists. Other than that I'm not sure. I would guess that sugar free does.

Only brushing and fluoride really helps.

In some gum there is something called xylitol. It helps prevent cavities even though you should still brush your teeth if you chew this gum. Also, sugar free gum is healthier than regular gum and bubble gum (which is not healthy). Trident is the healthiest gum out there (other than your dentist). But when you chew gum, your stomach expects something to come down. That is not healthy for your stomach.

trident hon

A7x ftw
as long as it says its good for your teeth on the package, like dont go chewing bubble gum and expect for your teeth to be cleaned

Yes, gum does in fact clean teeth. It stimulates your most important defense aagainst cavities, which is saliva. It may sound surprising/weird but why do you think salive exists? haha. if you want more information on the benefits of gum go to wrigley.com and on the top it say the benefits of chewing gum.
Hope this helps!

It doesn't replace brushing but yeah it will give you fresh breath and somewhat clean it........go to the link and it will tell what the seal "approved" cleaning gum has

those new trident ones do ;D

they do,

I think certain gums do.

Chewing sugar free gum helps clean your teeth AND neutrilize acids/sugars you may have just ingested.
