Your smile can always use a little extra care Whether it be a bi-annual professional cleaning by our team at Belmar Smiles or a daily enhancement such as mouthwash, you smile can benefit from all the care it can get. Not only is mouthwash effective on the go to keep your teeth clean, but sugarless gum can also provide similar benefits.

Studies have shown that if you chew sugarless gum for at least a period of twenty minutes after a meal, it can wash away bacteria and food particles to help shield you better from cavities. Sugarless gum can increase your saliva flow, which contains ingredients that can neutralize the harmful acids caused by bacteria that can erode tooth enamel. It can also help stop heartburn or acid buildup in the esophagus.

Mouthwash can conquer halitosis (bad breath) and tooth decay.Mouthwash can be used as an accessory in the fight against cavities by thwarting plaque buildup.It can limit also the speed of and even prevent gingivitis, which is a precursor to gum disease.
