'Tis the Season to Eat Lollies: CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies Stop Cavities While Spreading Holiday Cheer

Cavity-fighting candy keeps mouths merry this holiday season.

ALBANY, OregonCariFree, the leader in caries prevention, is combating cavities this holiday season by stuffing stockings with candy. The company's cavity-fighting lollipops, Xyli-Tots Lollies, are specially formulated to keep even the naughtiest mouths nice without sacrificing taste.

Practically indistinguishable from candy store lollipops, CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies are sugar-free and delicious. The special ingredient is a naturally occurring sugar substitute known as xylitol, which targets cavity-causing bacteria and decreases acidity within the mouth. The resulting neutralization significantly reduces cariogenic bacteria and lessens the risk for cavities. Xyli-Tots Lollies come in five kid-friendly flavors: cherry chuckles, citrus smiles, grape giggles, lime laughs and raspberry riddles, making them the perfect stocking-stuffer to keep kids' smiles sparkling like tinsel.

"The holidays are a time to indulge. Many families come together over delicious feasts of pies and other sugary foods. Handing out Xyli-Tots Lollies to children, and even adults, is a great way for them to combat the high level of acidity brought on by all the holiday snacking without putting a damper on the festivities," says Carri Cady, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CariFree.

A shocking 50 percent of children in the United States will experience tooth decay by the age of eleven, according to the Center of Disease Control. With so many children battling tooth decay, CariFree envisioned a solution to keep kids healthy. By ensuring a healthy pH level is maintained within the mouth, CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies help keep cavities at bay. After all, there is no lump of coal like getting a cavity during the holidays.

Drilling and filling cavities is just a response to the damage caused by dental caries and provides no solution for the actual infection that causes cavities to occur in the first place. CariFree's line of products addresses the problem at its source by effectively treating the caries infection and keeping children cavity-free for a lifetime.

"CariFree is passionate about oral health, especially when it comes to children," adds Cady. "Convincing kids to brush and floss can seem like a never-ending struggle, and even then, they are not fully protected against the dental disease. The Xyli-Tots Lollies are simple, safe and effective. Parents can replace the usual candy stocking-stuffers with Xyli-Tots Lollies, giving children the valuable gift of oral health."

Families and dentists can purchase the lollies by visiting the CariFree Web site at carifree.com and receive a special discount of 10 percent on orders of 50 dollars or more. This holiday season, CariFree's cavity-fighting treat is keeping mouths merry.
