Mom’s chewing gum can lower her child's tooth decay risk!
You catch tooth decay like you catch a cold.
Babies catch tooth cavity causing bacteria from their mothers.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that if a mother’s chews a gum with the artificial sweetener, Xylitol, (three times a day) she can reduce her child’s risk of tooth decay by 70%.
The reason why: Tooth Decay is an infectious disease.
A baby must “catch” the decay causing germs from Mother before a cavity can start to form.
Very specific kinds of bacteria cause cavities. The regular chewing of a Xylitol gum has been shown to reduce the transmission of these “cavity bugs” from mother to child.
In fact, Mom’s chewing gum activity is better than the fluoride treatments that dentists give or using special mouth washes to prevent decay.
What a pleasant way to help prevent tooth problems before they Start.
Use of xylitol gum by mothers (2-3 times per day)
starting 3 months after delivery and until the child was
2 years old, reduced the cavity causing bacteria levels and was significantly better than applying fluoride.
At 5 years of age, the xylitol group had 70% reduction in cavities
Xylitol currently is available in many forms (eg, gums,
mints, chewable tablets, lozenges, toothpastes, mouthwashes,
cough mixtures, nutraceutical products). Xylitol chewing gum
has been shown to be effective as a preventive agent; however, the
usefulness of other xylitol products that have not been studied
