Which chewing gum to choose for bad breath fighting ability..
If you chew gum, choose your gum carefully.
Any gum will help with bad breath because the chewing action results in more saliva being produced. Some gums, however, have better bad-breath-fighting abilities than others. These are some factors to consider..
Cinnamon flavoring seems to be especially effective in reducing bacteria counts in your mouth.
Look for gum sweetened with xylitol. For one thing, sugar's not good for your mouth. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that actually works to prevent bacteria from replicating in the mouth.
Chewing gum stimulates saliva production (in addition to covering up the odor with some kind of scent). Mints do not encourage saliva production which is good for better oral health.
