Dentist Alpharetta: Chew Gum…with Xylitol

chewing-gumAnd help prevent ear infections.

Studies have shown that chewing gum that contains xylitol can help prevent cavities, but also can help prevent ear infections.[1]  While the natural act of chewing helps with the removal of earwax and clearing the middle-ear, the presence of xylitol in your system helps prevent the growth of bacteria in the Eustachian tubes between your ear and nose.

While regular brushing and flossing are the necessary part of your daily oral health regimen, chewing gum with xylitol may be something you’ll want to add to morning or afternoon commute.  Our goal is to provide you with oral health options and this is definitely one of them.

If we can answer your additional concerns and questions, please feel free to contact us or schedule a complete oral exam.
