While xylitol as a sugar alternative
is commonly known, products containing xylitol come in all forms, including dental health products.
There have been multiple studies, many out of the University of Turku in Finland, that show the dental benefits of xylitol products. It’s because of these dental benefits that Xlear created a full range of dental products containing xylitol under the brand name Spry. Our Spry Oral Care line consists of toothpaste, mouth rinse, floss, gum, mints, and even candy.
Clinical studies show that xylitol may reduce dental caries and plaque in the mouth. The recommended dose for xylitol isn’t really a “dose”. For years professionals suggested having five to ten grams of xylitol a day, but recent studies have expanded this protocol. The recommended “dose” is actually five uses of xylitol rich products per day spread throughout the day. At Xlear, we like to say, “Strive for Five.” This is easily achievable when you break down your daily routine. Making simple changes in the products you purchase can make all the difference the next time you visit your dentist.
Think about it: you brush your teeth twice a day--not to mention plus flossing and rinsing, right? If you are doing all three of these things twice a day, you’re already getting five exposures. If you throw gum, mints, or candy into this mix, you’ll definitely meet your five exposures of xylitol a day. Our Spry oral care products containing xylitol are available online or at local retailers near you, all for an affordable price.
