MECHANISM OF ACTION AGAINST XEROSTOMIA
Its delightful taste, combined with its sweet and intensely refreshing effect, stimulates the nervous system, which generates an extremely efficient increase of the oral pH and salivary flow.
The xylitol in X-PUR Gums & Pastilles and XyliMelts is the only one indicated by Health Canada to stimulate salivation, making it a high quality medicinal grade xylitol. It does not only hydrate the oral mucosa for a short period of time, but actually stimulate the salivary process.
MECHANISM OF ACTION AGAINST CARIES
The tooth decay-causing bacteria are not able to metabolize xylitol, which results in an absence of lactic acid and polysaccharides production. Over time with xylitol use, fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered.
