How to Use Xylitol

The key to getting the greatest benefit from xylitol is to use it consistently and often, so it stays in contact with your teeth, mouth, and nasal passages. Look for products that use xylitol as the principal or only sweetener, and products that encourage chewing or sucking to keep it in contact with your teeth are best. Xlear and Spry products are 100% xylitol sweetened.

How much xylitol should I use?

Studies show that 4 to 5 daily appliations of xylitol per day are very effective. Many of the studies have shown that it is important that it be the major or only sweetener in the products because the addition of other sweeteners often reduces the effectiveness of xylitol. All of the products in the Spry Dental Defense System®, line are particularly rich in, and are only sweetened with xylitol. It is easy to get up to the recommended effective exposures on a daily basis with the full spectrum of products in the Spry Dental Defense System®, and other Xlear products.

How often should I use xylitol?

If used only occasionally or as little as just once a day, the results may NOT be as effective, regardless of the amount. Therefore it is best to use at least three, and preferably 5 times every day.

When should I use xylitol?

Use immediately after eating or snacking. If xylitol is the only sugar remaining in the mouth, most bacteria cannot metabolize it and will not be able to make the acids or biofilm that can attack teeth. Between meals, replace ordinary chewing gum or breath mints with comparable Spry products, which are 100% xylitol sweetened.
