Should: Sorbitol is a much better alternative to many other gums. Less problematic for your teeth and gum in general can help remove plaque...Not to replace brushing and flossing though.

Some do: According to the ada: "a company earns the ada seal for its product by providing evidence that meets the ada criteria for safety and efficacy." some sorbitol gums have earned the ada seal. No gum with sugar have ever earned the ada seal.
