PORTLAND, OR, March 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Is your New Years Resolution to reduce all those sweets? Well, Portland cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sue Wendling
, recommends xylitol as an alternative to sugar! She says Xylitol is good for preventing cavities; because it has a different chemical structure than sugar- it actually starves the bacteria that can cause cavities.
Xylitol tastes sweet but, unlike sugar, it is not converted in the mouth to acids that cause tooth decay. It reduces levels of decay-causing bacteria in saliva and can actually be part of a tooth decay prevention plan.
"Xylitol is a really amazing cavity fighter," said Portland Cosmetic Dentist
, Sue E. Wendling. "It is easy to find in gums and candies - just chewing it after a meal can do wonders for your teeth!"
Xylitol is most commonly extracted from birch trees and is 100% natural. It has about 33% less calories than sugar and is safe for diabetics. Dr. Wendling says best of all - it tastes amazing! Xylitol makes it harder for bacteria to cling to teeth and promotes a neutral pH level, meaning patients don't need to worry about losing enamel.
