The preventive effect of chewing gum containing maltitol, xylitol, gum base, and sugar on remineralization were investigated. The clinical study consisted of 8 weeks' randomized, double blind, controlled, cross-over clinical trials including 24 healthy, adults had chew gum. After each test week, remineralization effect was evaluated by measuring microhardness and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Microhardness of experimental chewing gum containing maltitol or xylitol was significantly higher than that of sugar gum (p less than 0.005). Images of SEM showed the remineralization effect of gum containing gum base, maltitol, or xylitol compared with sugar gum. Maltitol and xylitol gums were more effective in remineralization than sugar gum. It was concluded that maltitol and xylitol can be used as sugar substitute to prevent denial caries.
