xylitol does not prevent cavities

it is just a non-caloric sweetner. it doesn't lead to cavities like sugar does, but it does not prevent cavities. fluoride can actually heal a small cavity, and it will prevent cavities.

that doesn't mean there aren't any other health risks associated with fluoride.
