Our Analysis

Spry Tooth Gel with Xylitol is a safe, all natural, fluoride-free tooth-and-gum gel for children as young as 3 months of age. The three flavors (Original, Strawberry Banana and Bubble Gum) taste great because of the sweetness from Xylitol, which clinical studies have shown to benefit oral health. Note that this is a gel, not a paste, so it has a thinner and runnier consistency than traditional toothpastes.

We really like how the pickiest of kids will use this gel because of its yummy sweetness, while it's still safe and healthy enough to swallow.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:

  • Kids love the sweet taste

  • Fluoride-free
