A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Jul 23, 2021

This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by Steve Pardue from Elevate Oral Care to talk about xylitol, a tool to fight against acid producing bacteria!

Episode Highlights

  • Demineralization and Remineralization 
  • Xylitol 
  • Quantity of Xylitol 


“Everyday when we eat and drink our exposed teeth demineralize for a period of time.”


“Fluoride hardens the tooth surfaces but does little to effect the bacterial presence in the mouth.” 


“Xylitol has no effect on the tooth but can starve out specific bacteria that are very acid producing.” 


“You don’t need to consume a bunch of xylitol, just rather just have small amounts throughout the day.” 


“Here at Elevate we try to add xylitol to everything we can.”
