What does Xylitol Cost?

Presenter: Dr. John Peldyak

Dr. Peldyak explains the financial practicality of using xylitol. Even though xylitol typically is more expensive than table sugars, it serves as inexpensive insurance for your teeth, helping you to avoid costly dental bills. Starting children on xylitol early means that when their teeth come in, they will break through into a mouth that is a clean environment. This makes for less instances of childhood cavities and caries.
