Olgani Aloe & Xylitol Brushing Salts heal and nourish the gums as well as regulating the acidity of saliva in the mouth to promote excellent oral health. Xylitol is a non-carcinogenic natural carbohydrate that has been shown through numerous studies to inhibit the growth of streptococcus mutans, which is the main bacteria associated with dental decay. When used it helps return the pH balance in the mouth to above 5.7, which minimises the erosion of enamel and enhances the vital remineralisation process.
Using a unique combination of xylitol, aloe, propolis, echinacea and ginkgo biloba our brushing salts are an easy way to combat and prevent tooth decay and dental cavities while strengthening gums. Unlike other compounds of this type Olgani Aloe & Xylitol Brushing Salts also effectively reduce the acidity of saliva to help keep the teeth and mouth clean and fresh.
Sugar feeds bacteria in your mouth, causing it to multiply rapidly. This metabolic process produces acids that cause cavities to begin to form. When you use xylitol containing products the acid attack that would otherwise last for over half an hour is stopped. Because the bacteria in the mouth causing caries are unable to ferment xylitol in their metabolism, their growth is reduced. The number of acid-producing bacteria may fall as much as 90%. Since no acid is formed, the pH of saliva does not fall.
Studies show the xylitol effect on teeth is long-lasting and possibly permanent. Low decay rates persist even years after the trials have been completed. In addition to starving harmful bacteria of their food source, use of xylitol raises the pH of saliva in the mouth. When pH is above 7, calcium and phosphate salts in saliva start to precipitate into those parts of enamel where they are lacking. For this reason, use of xylitol has demonstrated not only a dramatic reduction in new tooth decay. It also has shown the arrest and even some reversal of existing dental caries.
