By now, most people are aware of the many "anti-cavity" candies out there, and how they can satiate a sweet tooth without compromising dental health. You may already be familiar with our product Loloz, which is cavity, bad breath, and gum disease-fighting goodness in lollipop or lozenge form, without the need for xylitol. But, did you know that dry mouth can create the same kinds of problems as poor dental hygiene? Check out these articles:
As you can see, dry mouth can have many causes, from prescription and over-the-counter medication side effects, certain diseases, and cancer treatments. So, you may be brushing and flossing as directed, but still suffer from dry mouth, which in turn can cause the same issues as NOT keeping up with brushing and flossing. Seems unfair, right?
Fortunately, there are many ways you can combat dry mouth, and there are several listed in just the two articles above. But, there is a common theme: drinking enough water, keeping up with brushing, and... enjoying a sugar-free candy or gum; doing so triggers the salivary glands to release more saliva, to wash away more potential bacterial buildup. The additional saliva also balances the pH in the mouth. Technically, any kind of candy will stimulate saliva flow and thus balance pH, and of course, it’s always best to choose sugar-free if you want to be mindful of your oral health. Not to brag, but we believe that Loloz is the perfect dry mouth combatant, and you get the added bonus of destroying cavity-causing bacteria at the same time, to boot.
