Is Xylitol All They Say It Is?Xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth, as it is effective in combating tooth decay from foods high in sugars and starches. This is proven through 25 years of testing. Many countries in Europe have already endorsed it as the number one choice for a sweetener. And it is being used instead of sugar in chewing gum, tablets, toothpaste, candy, and mouthwash. Not only does it help to prevent cavities, it reduces the occurrence of allergies.
Xylitol is a natural substance produced in fruits and vegetables, and even our bodies create 5 to 10 grams a day. We encourage our patients to use xylitol products rather than those with artificial or sugar sweeteners.
