The American Chicle company introduced Trident sugarless gum in 1960. This gum was invented due to the medical alert that sugared gum may contribute to cavities. Some people may remember the ads in the 1970s where Trident gum claimed four out of five dentists recommended chewing sugarless gum to their patients. This claim began to be tied in to the Trident gum enterprise.
