Is chewing a lot of gum bad for kids' teeth? Our seven year old love to chew gum, and seems to do it all the time. I try and make sure he uses sugar-free gum, but i'm worried that all that chewing could do something to his teeth or jaw. Do I have anything
Xylitol : Xylitol based (sugar free) will not promote tooth decay. The chewing action stumulates salivary flow, and together with the gum, cleanses the teeth.
