Xylitol is essential if like myself you have a colony of bacteria. However, forget the gum and buy a pound at whole foods for $9. Put a 1/4 teaspoon in your mouth and add piece of ginger (to nuetralize the acid of the xylitol). Keep it (with saliva that accumulates) for 10-25 minutes before spitting out. This do it after eating when possible. Use the gum when you cannot. Every time you eat have water near to drink and thus rinse the acid off you teeth from sugar/yogurt/lemons and other acid foods. If you are desperate also 3 times a day put 1 tablespoon of sunflower, sesame, or olive oil in you mouth and swish it for 10-25 minutes. Spit out and rinse with water when done. This will put vit K into the mouth and kill germs. Google oil pulling for more details. Using a water pik with salt is good morning and evening.

Periodontist are now recommending chewing gum with "XYLITOL" being the first ingredient in the gum. Icebreakers is one gum with this ingredient. They want you to at least chew the gum 3-4 minutes after each meal because it is proven to prevent cavities by inhibitin the growth of bacteria in the gums. Along with correctly flossing your teeth at least twice a day and brushing them in a circular motion at the gum line.
