Just wondered if you can get xylitol products in Canada...or if not, if it's straightforward getting them from USA?
|For use in dental care, studies usually recommend quite frequent use - i.e. 5 grams per day and five times per day, which would work out to 10 Spry mints per day. You can order them from aviva.ca: page 1 and page 2 and page 3 - look for Spry, Xlear, or Xylichew products. The shipping is about $9.
The most economical option is to buy Spry 100 pk gum or Spry 240 pk mints. For the latter, one pack would last 24 days per child if he is taking 10 per day. My kids like the fruit, berry, and mint flavours. You can use gum but dentists don't recommend overdoing that option for jaw health so you might want to try both. The cheapest way to buy xylitol is in granular form that looks like sugar - but it needs to be delivered in a way that it stays in the mouth for as long as possible, which is why gum and sucking the mints works best. Sweet Cherubim (on Commercial) has small blister paks of the xylichew products if you want to taste test those ones, but I don't think that they come in econopaks.
