Xylitol treatment

The natural sweetener derived from plants!

Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from fibrous plants.  It is a low calorie sweetener and is safe for diabetics.  Xylitol has a sugar sweet taste without an aftertaste. It is extracted from birch wood, corn, fruits, vegetables and is even found in the human body in small amounts. It can be swished, chewed, or sprayed to effectively reduce plaque by gum, tablets and even candy.

A minimum does of 6-10 grams (equal to 2 teaspoons) is recommended daily preferably after meals and snacks. For example “all Xylitol” mints and gums contain 1 gram of Xylitol.

Xylitol requires a brief period of tolerance adjustment. Starting with smaller doses and working your way up to the recommended dose is suggested.

Emergencies 24/7/365

Emergency care is always a priority.  We hope that your child will never experience a dental emergency, but if it happens, we want you to know what to do.  We have an on-call doctor 24 hours/seven days/week for emergency situations for patients of record.

Call Loma Linda Children’s Dental Group office immediately for any trauma to your child’s teeth or jaw.  If your child’s teeth are broken or knocked out, put them in milk or your child’s own saliva. Avoid rinsing the teeth with water or wiping/scrubbing the teeth.

In the rare event in which you do not hear from us, please call Loma Linda University School of Dentistry Pediatric Clinic at (909) 558-4689 and you will be connected to the Emergency Room where a pediatric dental resident can help.
