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.
Xylitol enhances calcium absorption in teeth, is tasty, and portable too. Packets of xylitol chewing gum or mints are easy to transport to help you remember to use xylitol throughout the day. By looking at tooth decay as a process, dentists and patients can improve the bacterial environment in their mouths.
Dr. Lon Jones explains the importance of honoring bodily biofilms. Xylitol empowers the defenses our body already has by carrying calcium to our teeth, and increasing fluid in the nose to increase defensive activity.
