Research has been performed to know whether chewing gum was effective significantly in decreasing bacteria population in salivla. Saliva was collected from 10 volunteers before chewing gum, 5 minutes after, and 20 minutes after. Saliva samples were diluted then cultured in Nutrient Agar Plates. Grown colonies (cfu, colony forming unit) were counted, data were tabulated and analyzed by using student t test. Chewing gum showed significant effect on decreasing bacteria population in salival, after 5 and 20 minutes of chewing gum.
