FORT WORTH and BROWNSVILLE, Texas, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Dentists are giving your children candy for Halloween! Scary isn’t it? But not just any candy. This year Rodeo Dental and Orthodontics presented a special Halloween treat to the kids of the community: Cavity Fighting Xylitol Candy endorsed by six national dental associations!
Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in fibrous plant parts and its usage is backed by 25 years of dental and medical research. Because it does not break down like sugar, it does not dramatically change the PH levels of the mouth nor does it cause bacteria to stick to teeth. This mechanism helps prevent tooth decay and improve overall health.
Saam Zarrabi, DDS a dentist at Rodeo Dental stresses the importance of incorporating Xylitol into your diet. “Research shows it (Xylitol) can help repair tooth enamel, clear nasal passages, prevent ear infections, and prevent white lines and swollen gums when wearing braces. It also has 40% fewer calories than sugar and 75% fewer carbohydrates!”
Sound exciting? It is!
We encourage you to introduce this sweetener to your family and to learn more about how this Halloween treat is a better alternative for your child’s oral health. Ask your Dentist for more information about Xylitol or how to purchase this specially sweetened candy.
