Spry Tooth Gel Review

Xlear Inc. has come up with all-natural toothpaste that kids will love. Their strawberry-banana flavored Spry Tooth Gel is made with 100% xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that helps reduce the risk of tooth decay. They developed this gel so younger kids and babies could use it to keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy from an early age. Spry Tooth Gel can be used with kids as young as 3 months old. It is safe for them to swallow and also sugar-free and fluoride-free.

Spry Tooth Gel is part of the Spry Dental Defense System from Xlear. They have a whole line of toothpaste, gum, mints, mouth rinse and mouth spray too. Xlear has also partnered with Live-Right with a combo kit with a Baby Banana Brush and the strawberry-banana flavored Spry Tooth Gel. The toothbrush is made just for little kids' hands. It makes them easy to start brushing their own teeth and learning to care for them young. The gel comes in a 2-oz. tube, and the Baby Banana Brush is soft and flexible for ages 12 months and older. It's non-allergenic, latex-free and dishwasher safe too.

We received the combo with the Baby Banana Brush and strawberry-banana flavored Spry Tooth Gel, and we also tried the original Spry Tooth Gel. My son is 4 years old, so he's a bit above the targeted age, especially for the toothbrush. The toothbrush is the perfect size for little 1 or 2-year-old hands, though. It's chunky and easy for them to hold, plus with the soft bristles they will do well with it. I like that the toothpaste is all-natural, sugar-free and fluoride-free. Even though Zachariah is old enough to spit out his toothpaste, he still swallows a little every now and then. So I try to make sure that he uses something that's safe for him. He didn't care for the original flavored one, but I think for a baby it would be best. The strawberry-banana flavored one was better for him.


Buy It: Spry Tooth Gel is available in many natural foods stores in your area.
