Xylitol works too!: Xylitol use greatly reduces reduces tooth decay rates both in high-risk groups (high caries prevalence, poor nutrition, and poor oral hygiene) and in low-risk groups (low caries incidence using all current prevention recommendations). Sugarfree chewing gums & candies are made with xylitol because it is a safe, natural & effective way to keep your mouth healthy. Found arbonne & tom's of maine.
