Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibrous parts of plants and is used to sweeten sugar free gum and mints. But it is not just a low calorie sweetener – it is also a cavity fighter.
Dentists rely on x-rays or radiographs to assess a patient’s oral health. X-rays are essential to the early detection and treatment of not just cavities, but such serious health conditions as bone infections and oral cancer.
Oral cancer can develop at any time. It is important to know what to look for and to tell your dentist or physician right away if you have any concerns.
