Why we exist
It’s our mission to help patients to improve their regular oral healthcare routine between brushing, through one extra simple and enjoyable step: by chewing sugarfree gum after eating and drinking. Independent clinical research proves that chewing sugarfree gum for 20 minutes after eating or drinking helps neutralise the plaque acid attacks that can cause tooth decay. 1
That's the message we're passionate about. And we’re working hand in hand with dental professionals to help spread the word.

The Wrigley connection
We are the world’s leading manufacturer of chewing gum and a supporter of clinical research into the oral health benefits of chewing sugarfree gum.
We've been working in partnership with the dental profession for over 25 years to help promote better oral healthcare.
We've done this by investing in support programmes - such as the Tooth Fairy Fund – which help both dental teams and the wider community, as well as developing new products to meet today’s oral health needs.
We've shown our commitment to supporting dental professionals through the creation of the Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme. Its aim is to provide information and practical resources to help them promote healthy oral care to their patients.
