Recent clinical studies suggest that a daily intake of 4-5 grams of xylitol is needed to benefit from the anti-caries-properties of xylitol. Taken together, 1) scientific, ii) economic, iii) compliance, and iv) ethical aspects strongly suggests that highly concentrated chewing gums or tablets should be recommended 3 times a day after a meal in order to facilitate and accomplish the advocated regimen.
