Is chewing gum almost as effective as flossing?
The bacteria that grows in our mouths can cause oral diseases without following proper hygiene. Scientists say that chewing gum picks up bacteria from different spots and helps remove it from the mouth, cutting chances of contracting those illnesses.
Now, the study doesn't specify whether you should actually stop flossing completely, so before you order gum by the truckload, maybe wait for a little bit more research. But for all of you gum-lovers out there, keep on chewin'.
