Xylitol- The Way to Fight Cavities if You Don't Have a Toothbrush

Bacteria can’t metabolize Xylitol which is a natural sugar. The acid production of bacteria is interrupted when using Xylitol. Studies have shown that plaque levels are reduced when Xylitol is used several times a day. Plaque accumulation is reduced by 50% when Xylitol is consumed three to five times daily. Tooth- brushing, also, reduce plaque by 50%. Note!!! By using Xylitol daily, the first 50% is removed no matter what the toothbrushing skill level. Using Xylitol products: simply chew gum, suck on candy or use toothpaste, mouthrinse, gel or dry mouth spray sweetened with 100 % Xylitol can reduce cavities in the future!!!
