If you have read some of our previous blog posts, you know that Xylitol starves harmful bacteria. Today, we will give you a more detailed explanation of why our approach is effective.
Sugar is a six-carbon sweetener. Xylitol and Stevia are 100% natural five-carbon sweeteners. We refer to all plaque bacteria as harmful bacteria for simplicity. Harmful bacteria metabolize sugar, excreting plaque and acid. This is why most people's mouth is acidic.
You also have basophilic bacteria that we refer to as beneficial bacteria. Your beneficial bacteria's job is to keep your mouth healthy by creating saliva. Saliva is one of your best defenses against gum disease. Beneficial bacteria can use five-carbon sweeteners as fuel.
When you use Weldental products, you starve the harmful bacteria. Our products also provide your beneficial bacteria the nutrition they need to flourish. The acid production decreases as the harmful bacteria population is minimized.
The beneficial bacteria count increases within a few weeks. The pH of your saliva becomes neutral to slightly alkaline. Xylitol benefits people with dry mouth by increasing saliva production. This return to your mouth's natural state stops further damage from occurring.
We recommend using our system twice per day. It delivers our Weltab formula to hard-to-reach areas where harmful bacteria thrive. Weltip Infuser Technology is a safe, simple method to better oral health. Our products restore your pH balance naturally.
