Why is sugar-free gum good for you?

Chewing sugar-free gum helps produce saliva, which neutralises the acids in your mouth.

How does Xylitol help my teeth?

Unlike sugar, Xylitol isn’t broken down by plaque bacteria, which means it helps keep a neutral pH balance in the mouth, protecting your teeth from tooth decay. Studies have found that people who regularly chew gum containing Xylitol have a lower occurrence of tooth decay than people who don’t.

How does Dentyne ‘Xtra Care’ help promote whiter teeth?

Dentyne’s refreshing "Xtra Care Peppermint" has the added oral care benefit of sodium stearate which helps promote whiter teeth.

What does the ‘Good for Teeth’ logo mean?

All Dentyne packs carry the "Good for teeth" logo which highlights the gum’s oral care credentials. Keep an eye out for this logo on packs so you know you’re making the right oral care choice.
