Chew on this: The benefits of sugar-free gum
If you have a “sweet tooth,” you are all too familiar with the challenge of keeping it free of cavities. Sugarless treats are a great solution. In fact, a new study from the University of Groningen shows that chewing sugarless gum can have benefits similar to flossing.

Researchers found that a single piece of chewing gum trapped an average of 100,000,000 bacteria. The number of bacteria in the gum increased the longer it was chewed. Don’t throw out the floss, though. The American Dental Association has warned that chewing gum may be a good adjunct to brushing and flossing, but it is not a replacement.

Five reasons to smile for your heart
You may know that a healthy smile is linked to a healthy heart. Extensive research has confirmed the connection between gum disease and medical conditions such as heart disease. But, did you know that using your smile more often can also benefit your heart, and your overall health?

Here are the top five reasons your heart will thank you for smiling more often:
  1. Endorphins are released in your brain every time you smile, which reduces stress.
  2. Smiling has been shown to boost your immune system.

  4. Smiling lowers the heart rate.
  5. Smiling improves your mood, which tends to have a positive impact on health.
