Why Use Xylitol Gum?
Clinical trials have shown the benefits of chewing gum sweetened with Xylitol after meals and snacks. Xylitol is a five-carbon sugar alcohol that has nearly identical taste and bulk to table sugar (sucrose), but with amazing dental benefits! Not only does it have fewer calories and less effect on blood sugar than sucrose, but it also has the added benefit of inhibiting the creation of acid in the mouth. This minimizes the damage done to your teeth, as well as allowing your teeth to heal (remineralize) at a faster rate.
Xylitol also has a low glycemic index of 7, compared to sugar’s level of 83. It is recommended that you chew a piece of xylitol gum after every meal or snack for maximum benefit to your teeth as it may reduce the risk of decay in the tooth. Xylitol is recommended by dentist, medical doctors, periodontists, pediatricians, and many health organizations and health professionals worldwide as a sweetener for anyone concerned with dental health, upper respiratory health, and sugar consumption, in general. Products sweetened with xylitol create an unwelcome environment for bacteria; study after study has shown that they simply do not stick well to teeth in a xylitol-rich environment.
