I don't know about Trident, but Wrigley's is gluten-free. (I thought there were other ways to treat clenching, though?)

They claim that their gum is in fact gluten free. Here is a link to their website: (see question #4 under their "Questions" page)

The above is a link to a thread on gluten-free gums..........the only one I question on this list is the "altoid gum" that Molly chews. Later, in another thread, somebody asked if Altoids are gluten-free, which they are. However, they also asked if altoid gum was gluten-free.....Molly (flagbabyds) said it was, but somebody else said that there was wheat something on the label..........I don't know exactly, cause I don't care if it's gluten-free or not with all my other options........also remember to call these companies before using them, as they can, as well all know, change their ingredients very quickly without telling us.
