What's the best way to clean your teeth when you can't brush?

I've taken for granted for years that chewing sugar-free gum is the best way, Trident in particular, but is it? I've noticed that a few of the sugar-free gums have gotten the ADA seal of approval, which has to count for something. But is sugar-free chewing gum good for your teeth basically just because it increases your saliva? And are there any better alternatives for cleaning your teeth after eating away from home?
