Have you ever noticed the candy bowl sitting at our front desk? Its full of Dr. John’s Candies. They’re delicious low calorie lollipops, mints and suckers that come in a variety of shapes and flavors. The best part? They’re all sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar alternative! Xylitol can be found in a variety of sources- from trees to fruits and vegetables. When used as a sweetener, it limits the ability of oral bacteria to cause cavities by stopping their acid production. A win-win for oral health!
This Halloween, we suggest stocking up on some xylitol goodies for your trick-or-treaters. Dr. John’s candies are an excellent option, as they taste great and can be ordered in bulk directly from the company or on Amazon.com. Our only disclaimer: too much xylitol can cause an upset stomach, so enjoy them in moderation! If you have any further questions about a tooth-friendly Halloween, give us a call!
