I read that calcium lactate added to xylitol mints/gums increases the remineralization power.

Does anyone know where to get affordable xylitol candies with calcium lactate?

do you know of any non abrasive toothpaste? w/o any abrasives like baking soda,silica,salt,or calcium carbonate?

Just wanted to add that Spry has soy in it in case you are sensitive or avoid it.

Soy in what spry product, do you know?

We use the berryblast mints by spry and see no soy in the ingredients (is it a different name?) I try to avoid soy so I'm interested in this...

Hi,

I have SPRY stuff right here in front on me. Berryblast Mints do NOT have any soy in it [it does have beeswax if you are vegan]; Fresh Fruit Gum has soy lecithin and vegetable glycerin in it and probaby the mint gums do as well. The mints and toothpaste have calcium lactate, the gum doesn't.

SPRY toothpaste has silica and vegetable glycerin, among other things.

XLICHEW [http://www.lumiline-inc.com/xylimax.html] has tablets and gum with Xylitol and calcium in them/they also have them with Vitamin C. But they're pretty pricey.

My mom bought them for me, actually for my ds. But he wasn't too enthusiastic about them.

Zellies uses rapeseed lecithin and Calcium carbonate.

Anyway, my ds's cavities [according to the pediatric dentist we first took him to, $3400 worth] have all remineralized; and we've used just about every thing Xylitol on the market. Right now, he really likes Zellies fresh fruit candies and Emerald Forest sour candies - Grape and Licorice. He'll take Cherry if there is nothing else available.
