The Power of Xylitol
With the increase in the amount of sugar in the typical American diet, we are seeing a rise in the number of cavities in both children and adults. In the past we have just recommended more brushing, flossing, and fluoride to combat this issue. Today, we are learning more about the benefits of using products sweetened with 100% xylitol. Xylitol is a plant derived natural sweetener that helps to get rid of the cavity causing bacteria and prevents plaque from sticking to the teeth. It comes in several forms including tooth paste, mouth wash, and great tasting candies, mints, and gum. Visit xylitol.org to learn more about the amazing benefits of xylitol ask about the Spry Dental Defense System at your next appointment!
