Son with ECC – Xylitol

Dear Dr. Ellie, 

Would the Zellies Mints be suitable for my 18 month old son (who has ECC)? How quickly do they dissolve in the mouth? Could I try a sample before purchasing them? Thank you!


Dear WW,

I would be happy to send you some samples of xylitol in various forms. I also have a little booklet that you will probably find helpful to decide how to look after your child’s teeth at various ages.

Please give me your address I will ship you some information and some products for you to try (even though your son is too young for some of the products don’t forget that this is a bacterial infection and that your own mouth is very important also.)

I would be happy to help you,

    I don’t know how to write you, but I also have an 18-month-old and am not satisfied that brushing his teeth twice a day with water will be sufficient to care for his teeth.Could you post some information regarding caring for children’s teeth?
