Xlear's Spry Tooth Gel Now Packaged With Special Infant Pacifier

Infant Pacifier Features Reservoir for Effective Distribution of Xylitol-Rich Tooth Gel

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - Xlear Inc., the leading manufacturer of xylitol products, today released its Spry Tooth Gel with a specially designed infant pacifier. The pacifier features a small reservoir that can hold a small amount of xylitol-rich tooth gel for effective distribution. Spry Tooth Gel is an all-natural gel sweetened with 100 percent xylitol, an all-natural sweetener that helps reduce cavities. The gel is used for application on the teeth and gums of infants and toddlers to help provide early defense and long-term protection against tooth decay.

Clinical studies have proven that consistent use of products sweetened with 100 percent xylitol can reduce dental plaque formation, inhibit the ability of cavity-causing, plaque-forming bacteria to adhere to teeth, and reduce cavities by up to 80 percent. In addition, xylitol research studies have shown that infants get much of the bacteria that cause cavities from their mothers who pass on the bacteria when they test or share food with their children. In addition to providing a healthy portion of xylitol, Spry Tooth Gel also contains tooth strengthening calcium.

"Our tooth gel has always been popular among mothers because it tastes great and provides tremendous benefits for children," said Blaine Yates, chief executive officer of Xlear, Inc. "We have made our product even better with completely new packaging and a new pacifier that provides a very effective way for infants to get the xylitol on their teeth at an early age. The sooner children start to use xylitol products, the better off they will be now and in the future. While in the past parents would put the gel on a soft tooth brush or cotton swab, now they can put it directly into a high-quality pacifier to kick-start their children's oral care."

The tooth gel is part of Xlear's Spry Dental Defense System, which includes Spry Coolmint Toothpaste, Spry Coolmint Oral Rinse, and Spry gums and mints. Unlike regular toothpaste, Spry Tooth Gel is safe to swallow. Before an infant begins teething, Xlear recommends administering Spry Tooth Gel using the specially designed pacifier. As children suck on the pacifier, their teeth and gums are coated with pleasant tasting xylitol. Xlear recommends using the gel and pacifier three to five times per day, following meals and snacks, and washing the pacifier after each application.

Spry Tooth Gel and pacifier also come with a complimentary sample-size of bottle of Xlear Saline Nasal Spray with Xylitol.
