I love gum! I always make it a point to have it on hand with me. I am definitely one of those people that enjoys chewing a stick of gum after my meals. It is a great palette cleanser, and it keeps me from eating second helpings. However at my last dental check up I ended up having a cavity. I decided to ask my hygienist if my gum habit could be to blame. She informed me that gum can have lot of positive benefits for the health of your mouth. The key is to choose a healthy chewing gum. How do you know if you are purchasing a healthy chewing gum?
