Xylitol is a healthy sugar for your teeth!  Sugarless gums of any kind can help boost dental health, because they stimulate saliva production and can help cleanse teeth. But those sweetened with xylitol – a type of sugar extracted from a variety of plants – can actually battle tooth decay, because xylitol works against Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria that causes tooth decay. Xylitol is available as a general sweetener at health stores.  Brands of chewing gum that contain Xylitol: Spry, Xponent, Xylichew and some types of Trident.
