A Lollipop a Day Keeps the Dentist Away: CariFree Fights Kids’ Cavities with Candy
CariFree's xylitol-based lollipops keep children cavity-free.
Practically indistinguishable from candy store lollipops, CariFree’s Xyli-Tots Lollies are sugar free, and delicious. The secret ingredient, xylitol, is a naturally occurring sugar substitute that targets cavity-causing bacteria and decreases acidity. The resulting neutralization and decrease of the harmful bacteria that cause the caries infection reduces the risk for cavities. The Xyli-Tots Lollies come in five tasty flavors: cherry chuckles, citrus smile, grape giggles, lime laughs, and raspberry riddles.
“The best thing about Xyli-Tots Lollies is that they taste great!” says Carri Cady, Registered Dental Hygienist and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CariFree. “Not only can parents give their children the candy they’re always begging for, but they can also feel at ease knowing their kids are actively fighting the caries infection. It’s a win-win.”
According to the Center for Disease Control, fifty percent of children in the United States will experience tooth decay by the age of eleven. With so many children battling tooth decay, CariFree envisioned a solution to keep kids healthy. Drilling and filling cavities only treats the symptoms of dental caries, it does nothing for the actual infection which causes the cavity to occur in the first place. Xyli-Tots Lollies addresses the problem at its source by effectively treating the caries infection and keep children cavity-free for a lifetime.
“What is harder than trying to convince a six-year old to floss?” says Cady. “It is heartbreaking to realize how many children go through painful procedures to rid them of cavities which are so easily prevented. The Xyli-Tots Lollies are the perfect solution to keep kids and parents happy.”
Finally the age-old battle of Mom versus candy can come to an end. CariFree suggests one lollipop after breakfast and one after dinner to lick the caries infection completely. A lollipop (or two) a day to fight decay? Sounds like something right out of a fairytale.
