Do you chew gum? But what is very important to know
Exclusive Desk: Chewing gum is very popular among young people. Many youngsters prefer chewing gum in fields, streets and even at home.
But there is not much awareness among the youth about how long a chewing gum should be chewed or whether any kind of physical complications are caused by chewing gum for a certain period of time. However, health experts and doctors have suggested that it is better not to chew chewing gum for a long time.
Chewing gum for pleasure can sometimes cause harm. For example, the risk of tooth decay is low in sugar-free chewing gum, but the risk is high in sugar-containing chewing gum. Additionally, excessive chewing of gum can complicate the condition of the jaw.
Experts claim that excessive chewing gum can cause various complications. Chewing gum, especially for prolonged periods of time, can cause nausea, vomiting, and even diarrhea.
Therefore, the famous dentist and the founder of Impress Barcelona Dental Clinic warns about chewing gum less. Khaled Kashem told the British newspaper Daily Mail, “My advice is not to chew gum for more than 15 minutes.”
Researchers also hope that chewing sugar-free chewing gum can prevent tooth decay. Because chewing gum produces a lot of saliva in the mouth which washes away the food particles in the mouth and removes the acids that cause bacteria in the mouth. And these bacteria are the cause of tooth decay.
But what can happen if the chewing gum is chewed for a long time? Especially if you chew for several hours, what can happen? Researchers say it can cause tooth enamel to erode.
This can lead to tooth decay. Not only this, excessive chewing of gum can also damage the jaw joint. Dr. in this regard. “Chewing gum may not directly affect the jaw, but if a person has a pre-existing jaw problem, it can worsen the condition,” said Khaled Kashem.
Researchers also say that excess chewing gum can cause serious stomach problems in humans. Because, the various enzymes of the human digestive system cannot easily digest chewing gum.
As a result, it stays in the stomach for a long time and due to this, the digestive tract can sometimes get blocked. Another study suggests that chewing gum can make headaches worse in people with headaches.
Dr. According to Khaled Kashem, chewing gum can play a role in treating diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis at home.
