How Does Xylitol Help to Reduce Cavities?
is a naturally occurring substance found in fruit and
vegetables and produced in our own bodies every day. With
extensive medical research, it has been found that it is
effective in combating tooth decay from foods high in
starches and sugars. It is also now widely known to be the
best sweetener for teeth as it prevents, not induces, decay.
Many dental associations in European nations endorse its use
in sweetening products such as toothpaste, mouthwash,
chewing gum, tablets, and candy. It also helps to prevent
allergies and is available in a nasal spray. We encourage
our patients to try xylitol products for better dental and
upper respiratory health.
