Spiffies was invented by Dr. Ray Wagner, a board-certified pediatrician of the American Academy of Pediatrics, who has seen lots of early childhood tooth decay caused by sugary fruit juices and infants sucking on bottles when they're put to bed. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says early childhood caries (or baby bottle tooth decay) is "perhaps the most prevalent infectious disease of our nation's children." With Spiffies, parents now have a convenient, safe and effective way to clean their infant's teeth and prevent cavities.
Spiffies is made in USA and has been clinically tested by the International & American Associations of Dental Research.
Spiffies are ultimately so effective because of their high concentration of the main ingredient, xylitol, a naturally occurring natural birch tree sugar. Xylitol has been proven to significantly reduce tooth decay rates by reducing harmful bacteria that have also been shown to cause sinus infections, allergies and asthma. Unlike fluoride, xylitol is safe for babies and toddlers to swallow, allowing it to be both an effective substitute and complement to fluoride in oral care products. The safety of xylitol has been proven in long term clinical studies and has been confirmed by all the major regulatory bodies worldwide.
Spiffies also provide convenient, safe and gentle relief for your baby's discomfort while teething. A cooled wipe gives quick relief to irritated gums without the use of numbing agents. Numbing agents can provide short-term relief, but can actually create more discomfort and irritation as your baby chews harder on teething toys.
