Dear Dr. Ellie:
I do not know if you have read the label recently, but Crest here in Chicago has sobitol as its major ingredient. I thought you might want to look into this.
Thank you. PB
P.S. I checked the label at several different stores just to be sure.
Much as I dislike sorbitol and work to educate people against it sorbitol is inexpensive and is in many products. It appears that the harmful bacteria of dental disease learn how to process sorbitol quite quickly, grow and thicken.
I would be concerned if you were consuming sorbitol.
I would be concerned if you were not using xylitol but only using sorbitol.
Providing you are on a program to eradicate the harmful bacteria of dental disease with xylitol this amount of sorbitol in toothpaste should not be an issue.
Thanks for your message please let me know if you have any other questions.
Ellie Phillips, DDS
