Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is safe, good tasting and very sweet. It is so natural that your body actually makes about 4 grams of it every day.
Xylitol interacts with the plaque biofilm on your teeth and disrupts it in such a way as to make it break down. That is how it helps prevent cavities.
Chewing Xylitol gum works to keep your mouth fresh and healthy. But NOTHING replaces daily flossing.
You only have to floss daily the ones you want to keep. And Xylitol adds extra protection.
