The Oral Healthcare Benefits of Chewing

The oral healthcare benefits of chewing sugarfree gum, such as Wrigley’s Extra, are well proven. Independent research has shown that chewing sugarfree gum after eating and drinking increases the production of saliva and that this increased saliva flow helps the neutralisation of plaque acids, helps maintain tooth mineralisation and helps reduce oral dryness.

Chewing sugarfree gum, in addition to the routine of twice-a-day brushing and especially after eating and drinking during the day, is a simple and enjoyable step to improving your oral healthcare. And it’s a convenient way to look after your teeth whether you are in the car, in the office or ‘on the go’.

Wrigley’s Extra and sugarfree gum products are accredited by the Oral Health Foundation and the Irish Dental Association, based on the strength of the supporting clinical evidence.

Wrigley is a sponsor of the Oral Health Foundation’s annual National Smile Month (15 May and 15 June, 2017) which brings oral care advice to thousands of consumers through an intensive multi-media public relations campaign.
