Question #1: Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay. True or False?
A. True, or
If you chew after eating, the increased salivary flow can help neutralize and wash away the acids that are produced when food is broken down by the bacteria in plaque on your teeth.
Over time, acid can break down tooth enamel, creating the conditions for decay.
Increased saliva flow also carries with it more calcium and phosphate to help strengthen tooth enamel.
Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
A. Thicken or bind other ingredients to stabilize the toothpaste formula, or
B. Add an agreeable flavor to the toothpaste, or
C. Prevent water loss in the toothpaste.
Mild abrasives to remove debris and residual surface stains. Examples include calcium carbonate, dehydrated silica gels, hydrated aluminum oxides, magnesium carbonate, phosphate salts and silicates.
Fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and remineralize tooth decay. All ADA-Accepted toothpastes contain fluoride.
Humectants to prevent water loss in the toothpaste. Examples include glycerol, propylene, glycol and sorbitol.
Flavoring agents, such as saccharin and other sweeteners to provide taste. Flavoring agents do not promote tooth decay.
(No ADA-Accepted toothpaste contains sugar or any other ingredient that would promote tooth decay.)
Thickening agents or binders to stabilize the toothpaste formula. They include mineral colloids, natural gums, seaweed colloids or synthetic cellulose.
Detergents to create foaming action. They include sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium N-Lauroyl sarcosinate.
A. True, or
Toothpastes are pastes, gels or powders that help remove plaque, a film of bacteria that forms on teeth and gums.
Toothpaste improves the mechanical brushing and cleaning power of a toothbrush.
"I've always loved words. I ate up all the books I could get my hands on, and when I couldn't get books, I read candy wrappers and labels on cereal and toothpaste boxes."
