Cross Link Radio, health from the eye teeth on down. I’m here to help you understand some of the mysteries of health from the perspective of the oral health care provider, that’s me, Shirley Gutkowski. I’m a clinical dental hygienist. I’m in the prevention mode, helping you keep your health at its optimum.

When a 9 year old child gets cavities what do you do? What do you recommend? Do you incorporate any treatments for the family? 

If that 9 year old is your child, what do you expect from your dental team? You've cut down on sugar, you've eliminated pretzels, juice, candy treats, what else is there? Flossing??

Listen today as Shirley Gutkowski tells of how to use xylitol for the family to reduce dental decay and make life better. Eliminating sugar is not the only answer, you'll see that in families where one or two kids get all the cavities and the whole family eats the exact same things.
