All were checked for plaque and bacteria in their mouths at the start of the study and six weeks later.
After six weeks, there was a “significant” reduction in the main bacteria buildup associated with cavities for the children who snacked on the xylitol and maltitol candy.
The gummy bears made with xylitol used in the study are not available on the U.S. market at this time but as you know, gum and mints with xylitol are available from our office in the form of Zellies. If you are not local to Rochester, you can purchase Zellies from here.
The findings are going to be published in the journal BMC Oral Health.
Dr. Brett Kinsler is a chiropractor in Rochester, NY. Zellies xylitol candies and mints can be purchased in his office at 2364 Lyell Avenue, Rochester, NY 14606.
