    No, but it will lose its flavor on the bedpost over night!

    depends if it's whiten gum like trident. but mostly temporarily freshens your breath if it's minty. but a in reality probably not. more like loosens food particles if you and good if you cant brush..haha

    CChewing sugarless or gum with xylitol or sorbitol is good for your teeth.  It increases salivary flow which buffers acidity in the mouth which causes decay or cavities. If it  has xylitol or sorbitol its even better. THESE SUGARS fight decay.
