BELLEVUE, Wash.--(OraHealth, the world leader in the breakthrough technology of oral adhering discs to coat and soothe the mouth, announced today the launch of XyliMelts for Dry Mouth. XyliMelts for Dry Mouth is an all-natural, great tasting, oral adhering disc that time-releases an effective amount of xylitol (500mg) and oral lubricant to relieve dry mouth (xerostomia) day and night and reduce tooth decay. XyliMelts is the only remedy that effectively addresses the sleep disruption and tooth decay associated with dry mouth.)--
“Sufficient evidence exists to support the use of xylitol to reduce caries.”
The patented oral adhering disc technology allows XyliMelts to discretely stick to gums or teeth making them ideal for use while sleeping to avoid sleep disturbance. A recent clinical study, published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene, demonstrated that use of XyliMelts time-release adhering discs while sleeping significantly improved perceived oral wetness upon awakening in the morning, and improved perceived discomfort for xerostomia.
XyliMelts time-release a therapeutic level of xylitol into saliva while sleeping, when saliva flow is lowest, and the xylitol will stay in the mouth longest before being swallowed. XyliMelts used while sleeping is the most effective delivery per gram of xylitol for caries control.
According to Kiet A. Ly, MD, MPH, University of Washington Department of Dental Public Health Sciences, "Sufficient evidence exists to support the use of xylitol to reduce caries."
Many medications cause dry mouth, as does increasing age, mouth breathing while sleeping, use of CPAP machines for sleep apnea, certain autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's syndrome, and radiation therapy.
Additional benefits of XyliMelts for dry mouth suffers include:
- Stimulates saliva
- Coats, moisturizes, and lubricates
- Freshens breath
- Works for night-time dry mouth caused by breathing through the mouth
- Can be used with CPAP machines
XyliMelts are currently available online and at Rite Aid pharmacies in early March. Wholesale pricing is available for dental professionals. For more information call 877-672-6541 or visit www.XyliMelts.com.
