Dental expert Dr. Nicole Mackie weighs in on the sweetener’s safety for teeth and gums

Artificial sweeteners can help prevent decay, but dentists warn of other potential side effects.

Aspartame-containing gum can also cause potential digestive health issues, which can indirectly impact oral health, according to Dr. Nicole Mackie, a dentist at the Dental Implant Specialty Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“This is because excessive consumption of artificial sweeteners like aspartame may not be able to be processed in the gut, leading to bloating, diarrhea and fatigue,” she explained to Fox News Digital.
