Sugar free generally shouldn't, but the ones with sugar in could, in theory.

Anything with sugar can. I would say your safe as long as you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. Don't worry!

Yes, if it has sugar in it.

hey Stephen! It can definetely cause decay if it contains sugar... but no doubt it is less harmful as compared to candies and chocolates. this is mainly because chewing action itself cleanses your teeth and stimulates the flow of saliva which further helps in cleaning your teeth. you can try sugar free chewing gums which contains xylitol. studies have pvoven that xylitol is not only non-cariogenic but it prevents caries or cavities too. and it is not harmful to ur health as is aspartame containing chewing gums.


Buy me a phone!
if it is sugarless it can prevent cavities!! ex:orbit

yes if its not sugar free


YOU ARE WRONG
There is no chance if you chew sugar-free gum, but it would take a lot of sugar gum to give you cavities.


OMG!
hahahahahah idk i chew it all the time...oh wait u should see my teeth......hmmmm

hi, firstly i would like to tell u that chewing gum is a very good excercise for gums and teeth. not all chewing gums gives cavity but the once which have sugar. also once or twice also its ok but regularly eating it, gives cavities...


Nikki
Yeah, sugar gum can. Candy is way worse, though.


CHELLE!

if its sugar free then you have a greater chance that you will, but if its sugar free you wont get them.

Chewing sugarless gum can actually PREVENT cavities.
Eating cheese as well.

Chewing gum may give you cavities, yes. But like any other food and drink, cavities may be prevented if you brush your teeth. Simple as that. Plaque takes 24 hours to harden, so as long as you brush your teeth, you won't get cavities. Cavities don't pop out of nowhere.

My advice to you is to keep chewing gum and to brush. Tell your Grandma that she's right, but that you won't let it happen.
Best of luck!
---------------------------
Note: If a gum is said to be "sugarless", it means it has aspartame in it, which is strongly rumoured to be a carcinogen (it'll give you cancer). Don't worry though, it would take a LOT of aspartame (at once) to give you cancer, so don't believe this rumour. Unlike cigarettes, it doesn't add up overtime, it's something you have to consume all at once.
