Hi. My name is Nikki. I’m a registered dental hygienist here at HPS Advanced Dental Care, located in Shelby Township, Michigan. Today I’d like to talk to you about xylitol dental products, and these are products that we offer here in our dental office in Shelby Township, Michigan. We recommend them to a lot of our dental patients, as well.

With the controversy with fluoride and being a holistic based dental office, a lot of our dental patients don’t like fluoride products so we recommend a lot of different xylitol products to fit their oral health care needs.

Spry is a company that uses xylitol based ingredients. They have toothpaste which is great to use in the morning and in the evening.  It helps so that bacteria doesn’t stick to the teeth.  It also helps to rebuild that enamel and strengthen it, so that way it’s less able to break down.

We also recommend the xylitol gum and the mints for children as well as adults because you can chew this after you’re done eating a meal. It helps to keep your PH balance of your saliva at a neutral level. What happens when we eat is our saliva becomes an acidic environment. So that way the bacteria in our mouth feeds off of that sugar and can create a cavity.  If you were to chew a piece of xylitol gum or have a mint after your meal it would help to neutralize your pH again so that way it lowers your risk of a cavity.

So that’s why we recommend a lot of these products for children and for adults who don’t have very good oral hygiene habits and children don’t really like to brush their teeth or they want to do it on their own. This will definitely be a helpful way for them to maintain an oral healthy environment.

There’s also different products as well as the oral mouth rinses and there’s also a nasal spray as well.  Being cold outside, we are more susceptible to colds and sinus infections, but the xylitol has an antibacterial property so that way it will help to kill any bacteria in the sinuses and things like that.
