Suffering from dry mouth? You don’t have to!  

There are treatments available…

Dry mouth affects a large proportion of adults in the U.K. The impact can vary from a minor inconvenience to incredibly painful, causing issues with swallowing, eating and speaking – often the impact is dependent on the cause. Causes of dry mouth can include some medications, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, anxiety, mouth breathing, diabetes, Sjögren’s syndrome, CPAP and/or a high salt or sugar diet. 

Fortunately, there are things you can do to help alleviate the symptoms. A good oral hygiene routine, healthy balanced diet and taking regular sips of water throughout the day can help. Chewing on sugar free chewing gum or sucking sugar free sweets can also help to stimulate salvia flow.

If these aren’t working, there are also products available which can create artificial saliva or stimulate saliva flow such as gels, toothpastes and Xylimelts.

XyliMelts are oral-adhering discs that stick to the teeth or gums to relieve dry mouth. This hugely popular product is made with xylitol, a natural sweetener that helps stimulate saliva flow, XyliMelts use adhering disc technology to slowly release 550 mg of xylitol, which is most effective when continuously released and lingers in the mouth, especially when used while sleeping when saliva flow almost stops. XyliMelts last for hours, moisturising and coating the mouth for greatest comfort. The mild mint flavour freshens your breath and the xylitol may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
