Xylitol is a substance similar in look and texture to sugar. It is a sweet-tasting, natural
sweetener that can be found in certain fruits and trees as well as inside our bodies as a
natural component of the metabolic process. It has been used as a food additive with
fewer calories than everyday sugar. Xylitol currently is being used for medicinal purposes
as it has been shown to reduce tooth decay.

Xylitol is an easy and healthy way to combat and prevent tooth decay. It comes in candies,
gum and mints. Xylitol is effective in preventing and combating tooth decay because
instead of promoting the growth of bacteria like other sweeteners, it reduces it. It also
changes the amount and acidity of saliva to help keep the teeth and mouth cleaner. The
bacterium that is reduced includes cavity-causing bacteria “strep mutans.” This can be
achieved with at least three pieces of xylitol gum/mints/candies (gum is believed to be
most effective) daily as well as implementing xylitol-enriched fruits like plums and
raspberries into a daily diet. The recommended dose for dental cavity prevention is 6-10
grams per day. To be most effective xylitol needs to be used daily on an ongoing basis. At
high doses, xylitol can cause diarrhea in kids and adults. When reading the product label,
xylitol should be the first sugar listed and ideally the only sugar included. Xylitol products
are also available in oral hygiene products like toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss. It is also
found in nasal sprays, tooth wipes and lozenges.

is > 10 pieces per day to provide 6 g of xylitol are assigned “Maybe”.

toothpaste, most products have not been studied or published in peer-review journals thus the potential impact on caries reduction is not
known.
