Xylitol is recommended by False Creek Pure Dental to prevent adult caries.

December 5, 2014

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol used as a sweetner. It is naturally found in low concentrations in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, and can be extracted from various berries, oats, mushrooms, fibrous material such as corn husks and sugar cane bagasse, and birch.

It may help remineralize enamel before dental caries form and inhibits the growth of Streptococcus pneumoniae. 

xylitol is a lower-calorie alternative to table sugar. Absorbed more slowly than sugar, it does not contribute to high blood sugar levels or the resulting hyperglycemia caused by insufficient insulin response

.Xylitol chewing gum appears to decrease rates of acute otitis media in children going to daycare by 25%.

A new  research shows it can reduce adult  root caries 40%.  

100% Xylitol Chewing Gum is provded for our patients after treatment.
