That tag-line has been around since snake-oil was invented.

Jeez, this is only recommended by one dentist? It should be at least 4 out of 5 :smile:

It's not that these specific mints reduce acid, they're nothing special, but increased saliva can reduce the acid levels in your mouth, usually sugar free gum is recommended, but sucking on hard candies will also increase saliva. It seems that the addition of the sugar substitute xylitol may be an added benefit. Basically, any sugar free gum or lozenge will increase saliva.

regard to sucrose-free polyol chewing gums, the panel noted that it is biologically plausible that the act of chewing itself increases the rate of food clearance from the mouth, increases saliva production and more quickly neutralizes plaque acids, thereby potentially lowering the incidence and progression of caries.
