Ice Breakers Ice Cubes
Xylitol occurs naturally in some fruits and vegetables. It is used as a sweetener in sugar free and reduced sugar foods including chewing gum and candy. Numerous studies suggest that xylitol inhibits the growth of Streptococcus mutans, bacteria commonly found in the oral cavity and responsible for cavities. These bacteria are not able to use xylitol as an energy source as they do with sugar, starch and other fermentable carbohydrate sources. As a result, the ability of the bacteria to stick to teeth is reduced and, consequently, there is less plaque buildup and cavities.
ICE BREAKERS ICE CUBES chewing gum contains xylitol as the first ingredient which means in high enough concentrations to be effective. This gum is enjoyable, readily available, and effective. A winner for preventative dentistry!
