Is chewing trident gum beneficial to your teeth?

Yes! : Especially if it has recaldent. Chewing two pieces of gum twice daily for twenty minutes may remineralize potential cavities in your teeth. It also stimulates your spit (saliva) which helps fight decay. Xylitol the ingredient in sugarless gum is beneficial to your teeth as well.

Chewing gum: Actually chewing a sugarless gum can remove plaque from the teeth. Some trident chewing gums have recaldent in them which is a substance made from milk proteins that actually can remineralize teeth. So the answer is yes!
