Replace your Toothbrush with Bubble Gum?

Some Chewing Gum can help Fight Tooth Decay

While you should never replace your toothbrush for a stick of chewing gum, the ADA states that "Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay." 

Such sugarless gum, which replaces sugar with a synthetic sweetener such as sorbitol, could be especially useful in underdeveloped countries whose population has less access to dental treatment and oral hygiene supplies like toothbrushes and toothpaste.
