Xylitol Syrup May Prevent Cavities in Toddlers

July 6, 2009: 09:41 AM EST
Studies show that Xylitol syrup, a naturally occurring sweetener, can restrict the decay of baby teeth. If it occurs early, tooth decay may remain prevalent throughout life. Exposure of 8 grams two to three times daily during tooth eruption could prevent up to 70% of tooth decay. The use of Xylitol is seen to be a cost effective prevention of tooth decay in at-risk populations.
