Xlear Introduces Strawberry-Banana Flavored Kid's Spry Tooth Gel

All Natural Gel Sweetened Exclusively With 100 Percent Xylitol; Also Available in Combo Pack With the Original Baby Banana Brush

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  Xlear, Inc., the leading manufacturer of xylitol products, today introduced its strawberry-banana flavored kid's Spry Tooth Gel. The gel is sweetened with 100 percent xylitol, an all natural sweetener that helps to reduce the risk of tooth decay. The gel was developed for children ages three months and up and can be applied their teeth and gums to help promote good oral care at an early age. Xlear has also partnered with Live-Right, the maker of the Baby Banana Brush, to offer a combo kit that includes the Baby Banana Brush and strawberry-banana flavored Spry Tooth Gel.

"We introduced our original Spry Tooth Gel in 2004, and it has quickly become one of our most popular items; particular among parents and dental professionals," said Blaine Yates, president of Xlear, Inc. "Spry Tooth Gel is ideal for children that are either too young to brush or struggle to brush regularly. The sooner that we can get children to start using xylitol as part of their daily oral care, the better off they will be in the long run. The new strawberry-banana flavored gel combined with the Baby Banana Brush provides a safe and effective solution for children to learn good brushing habits and benefit from xylitol's positive health attributes at an early age."

Spry Tooth Gel is sugar-free, fluoride-free and safe to swallow, unlike most children's toothpastes. Clinical studies have proven that consistent use of product sweetened with 100 percent xylitol can help promote good oral care and reduce the risk of tooth decay. Xylitol-rich products, such as Xlear's strawberry-banana flavored Spry Tooth Gel, create a healthier oral environment and help to increase mineral absorption back into the enamel of the teeth. Spry Tooth Gel is part of the Spry Dental Defense System, which is a growing line of oral care products that includes Spry gum, mints, oral rinse, toothpastes and oral mist spray.

The Baby Banana Brush is soft, flexible training toothbrush for ages 12 months and older. The brush's banana shape is easy to grasp, and its design decreases the risk of mouth injury if a baby falls while brushing and provides babies comforting relief during teething. The patent-pending brush was developed by a dental hygienist, is non-allergenic, latex-free and dishwasher safe. Visit Live-Right.com to learn more.

A 2.0 fl. oz tube of the strawberry-banana flavored kid's Spry Tooth Gel is available for purchase online at Xlear.com for $5.49. The combo kit, which includes a tube of the strawberry-banana flavored kid's Spry Tooth Gel and a Baby Banana Brush, is available for $12.99.
