Not all trident has sorbitol MOST has xylitol which is why the ADA has approved it as a gum to chew after meals. There are studies completed showing, clinically, the impact of xylitol on the formation of cavities. DO be careful reading the ingredients. Some of the trident uses both xylitol and other sugar alcohols like Maltotol and Maltodextrin. Both of those have the same glycemic load as table sugar and WILL pull you out of ketosis. ALSO, I have heard recommended that you should rinse the gum before chewing as it has a starch coating on it that may be a problem.
