Are you tired of the discomfort and inconvenience that often comes with dentures and dry mouth? Fear not, there is a sweet solution that might change your lifestyle – Xylitol. I’ll dive into how Xylitol can be a game-changer for denture wearers dealing with dry mouth.

Xylitol is a natural sugar found in fruits and vegetables. Although it is a sweetener, it is not an actual sugar and is safe for diabetics to use with a glycemic index of 7 compared to 100 for glucose. So, it is considered a healthy alternative to sugar and sugar substitutes.

Here’s how Xylitol can help denture wearers with dry mouth:

  1. Stimulates Saliva Production helping to alleviate the discomfort of dry mouth.
  2. Fights Bacteria to help reduce the risk of dental infections and bad breath.
  3. Protects Against Tooth Decay and can inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause cavities.
  4. Gentle on Dentures and oral tissues and reduces irritation caused by dentures.

Incorporating Xylitol into your daily routine is easy. Here are a few ways:

  1. Xylitol Gum or Mints
  2. Xylitol Toothpaste (for natural teeth only; don’t use it to clean your dentures)
  3. Xylitol Mouthwash
  4. Xylitol Sweeteners in drinks and cooking

6 grams of Xylitol each day might help you say goodbye to denture discomfort and hello to a happier, healthier smile!
