The chemical makeup of xylitol deprives harmful mouth bacteria of the sucrose they need to grow, and its slow metabolization makes it safer for those with diabetes. Xylitol is gaining attention, because it is less harmful to one's teeth than sugar, and it actually helps combat decay, according to the company.

The company is introducing the all-natural xylitol candy in tandem with their Loloz cavity-fighting lollipops. It also stressed that neither of the candies are a substitute for regular brushing, flossing, or dental checkups.

The candies come in three flavors: strawberry, orange, and berry. They are available for preorder through the Dental Optimizer site and its xylitol page. Dental professionals and retailers can apply for a wholesale discount at the company's website.
