Are you confused when your dental office gives you a lollipop? We pass out these fruity Dr. John’s suckers because they contain xylitol and they taste great! Inside your mouth, bacteria ingest sugars and create a sticky cavity-causing substance called plaque. Xylitol interrupts the metabolic processes of these bacteria, reducing their growth, reproduction, and plaque creation. There are also studies that show xylitol may help remineralize weakened enamel. W00t! #thebetterdentaloffice #mysweetdentist
