On our toothpaste and mouthwash labels, you’ll notice something in the list called xylitol. This plant-based substance is used as a sweetener to combat the bitterness of other ingredients and emphasize the minty flavor. Compared to regular sugars found in other toothpaste formulas, which may increase acidity in the mouth, xylitol has been known to improve oral health.
Dental Benefits of Xylitol
- Can keep bacteria from sticking to teeth
- May prevent oral infections
- Helps fights bad breath
- Maintains a neutral pH level in the mouth
- Increases production of saliva
- Reduces cavities and tooth decay
Dr. Brite co-founders Pooneh Ram DDS and Dr. Paris Sabo have carefully selected each ingredient, including xylitol, to help enhance your oral health. All of the items chosen for their dental care formulas are responsibly sourced in the USA and are never tested on animals.
