Dental Health Information

Everyone knows that sweets are bad for your teeth, right? Actually, the answer to that question may not be what you expect. While sugar (sucrose) is indeed a prime culprit in tooth decay, there is another sweetener that actually improves oral health, prevents decay and can even help rebuild tooth enamel.

Xylitol for Oral Health
This sweetener is a naturally occuring sugar alcohol, or polyol, found in birch trees, raspberries, plums, corn, strawberries and many other plants. It is even produced in the human body. Xylitol has been found to have an anti-bacterial effect, and particularly targets Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria that cause dental caries, or tooth decay. It has also been shown to aid in the prevention of halitosis (bad breath) and dry mouth.

Studies conducted over the past 25 years have shown that four to 12 grams of xylitol daily reduces the occurrence of tooth decay, halts the progress of existing decay, and even reverses some dental caries as a result of remineralization of tooth enamel. Xylitol is safe for diabetics, since it has a low glycemic index of seven and is metabolized slowly, without the necessity for insulin.

At Xylipro.com, we carry several types of xylitol products. One of the easiest ways to administer xylitol effectively is through gum and mints, to be used after each meal or snack. Our gum comes in fruit, spearmint, wintermint, green tea and cinnamon flavors, and we have mints in chocolate, raspberry, lemon and wintermint. We also have sweetener granules, which can be used in place of sugar in direct proportion--and with 40 percent fewer calories! Squigle Enamel Saver Toothpaste is also available to complete your regimen.
