This is what aspartame does to your teeth and overall health, according to dental experts

Dental expert Dr. Nicole Mackie weighs in on how aspartame affects your dental health

Despite the World Health Organization’s recent warning about it, aspartame doesn’t pose a cancer risk, the FDA and industry experts insist — but given that the artificial sweetener is used in many chewing gums and candies, does it pose any risk to the teeth and gums?

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.
