Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question 1: What is Gingivitis?
  • Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease with inflammation. Most people have it and don’t know it. Gingivitis can progress into serious gum disease.
  • Question 2: How can CONFADENT, unlike other chewing gum, help reduce plaque and prevent Gingivitis?
  • Most chewing gums in the market have become sugar-free, which enable a user to increase concentration of saliva movement in general. You can wash away some of the risks of acid attack if you chew sugar-free gum after a meal due to the increased activity of your saliva glands. This does not treat the decay and disease in your mouth. That is why CONFADENT has been created. Our one of a kind oral care product contains the active ingredients necessary to continually fight away the bacteria and plaque-buildup, so that you will be able to have a Strong and Healthy Smile!
  • Question 3: What is the cause of bad breath and how can sugar free gum solve that problem?
  • Bad breath is caused generally by dry mouth; because sugar and other bacteria stick to your teeth and gums, it is important to have enough moving saliva in your mouth to wash away any unwanted food particles. Sugar-free gum is able to get the saliva glands going so that you can remove some unwanted food particles, but it does not take care of the underlying issue: there still remains bacteria and plaque build-up. That’s where CONFADENT comes in. Through our proven active antiplaque and antigingivitis ingredient, we ensure that that you will be able to keep both fresh breath and a healthy mouth throughout your busy day.
  • Question 4: How does baking soda whiten my teeth?
  • Sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda as it is commonly known, has the ability to help reduce the buildup of plaque on your teeth. In cases where the plaque is not too much or still in its early form, it can be removed entirely. Teeth discoloration is normally caused by the buildup of plaque. By using sodium bicarbonate, an ingredient contained in CONFADENT Chewing Gum, you can prevent the discoloration and ensure your teeth stay whiter!
  • Question 5: Plaque vs Tartar?
  • Plaque is recognized as a thick deposit of saliva and trapped food particles that proliferate on one’s teeth. If this bacterium is left untreated, it will get worse and turn into Tartar, a harder surface of film that is extremely hard to remove. Both plaque and tartar are dangerous for one’s oral hygiene, and can lead to cavities and swollen gums. To prevent this from occurring, it is recommended to consistently brush, floss, and chew CONFADENT Gum daily.
  • Question 6: What is CPC? Is it Safe?
  • Short for Cetylpyridinium Chloride, CPC is a quaternary compound that reduces plaque and kills bacteria. CPC is safe and has been tested to be completely safe for human consumption. With CPC, CONFADENT Chewing Gum ensures to help reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
  • Question 7: What does Mouthwash do? Why is CONFADENT better?
  • Generally containing alcohol which is is harmful if swallowed, many mouthwashes have the functions of containing white-enhancing and germ-killing ingredients that help prevent plaque buildup on teeth. CONFADENT is able to provide you the benefits of mouthwash in a safe alcohol-free On-The-Go friendly medium. 
  • Question 8: How often do you recommend I chew CONFADENT?
  • We recommended to chew CONFADENT 2-3 times a day minimum. These uses should be after eating and drinking to receive maximum benefit. CONFADENT Chewing Gum allows you to have a healthier mouth while you are On-The-Go.
  • Question 9: Is CONFADENT more a Chewing Gum or a Mouthwash?
  • CONFADENT is exactly both! CONFADENT is an oral care product that contains the benefits of mouthwash as well as the convenience of a chewing gum medium.
  • Question 10: Do I still have to brush my teeth even if I chew CONFADENT?
  • YES, you still have to brush your teeth. There is a 12-14 hour period in which people don’t brush their teeth. This is the time in which discoloration and plaque build up occurs. CONFADENT allows you to practice good oral care from the time you brush your teeth in the morning to the time you brush your teeth in the evening.
