Does chewing gum help with caries?

Chewing gum cleans the surface of teeth from food debris and bacteria, as well as improves saliva secretion, which prevents the development of caries.

Gum containing fluoride increases the durability of tooth enamel, especially in children and adolescents.

However, the prophylactic effect of chewing gum does not last more than 10-15 minutes when chewing it, and can not replace cleaning with a toothbrush.
