Chewing sugarfree gum after eating and drinking is clinically proven to help fight cavities, strengthen teeth and reduce harmful plaque acids by stimulating the most important natural defence against tooth decay – saliva.

As an easy, enjoyable and accessible way of improving oral health, we have supported a number of grassroots initiatives aimed at improving dental awareness around the region, including: • Distribution of educational literature and product samples to community health clinics • Supporting the next generation of dentists through distribution of oral health tool kits and samples for fieldwork and university open days • Free patient literature and product sampling program for dental surgeries • Participating in professional dental associations’ annual conferences and symposiums People
