BELLEVUE, Wash.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Users of XyliMelts for Dry Mouth while sleeping experienced improved sleep quality by an average of 100% according to a recent study conducted by Oral Care Research Associates for OraHealth. XyliMelts for Dry Mouth is an all-natural, oral adhering disc that slowly 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 for dry mouth that effectively addresses the sleep disruption and tooth decay caused by dry mouth.
“The results of this survey showing improved sleep quality support the findings of our earlier clinical study which demonstrated that use of XyliMelts slow-release adhering discs while sleeping significantly improved perceived oral wetness upon awakening in the morning.”
The findings from a survey of XyliMelts users showed that the average sleep quality rating before using XyliMelts was 2 and improved to 4 after using XyliMelts at night while sleeping, as rated on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being the worst and 5 the best quality of sleep.
Additional survey findings showed that 92% of the respondents used XyliMelts at night while sleeping.
For those whose sleep is disturbed by dry mouth, the patented oral adhering disc technology of XyliMelts allows them to discretely stick to the outside of a molar or adjoining gums, making them ideal for use while sleeping.
XyliMelts slowly release an effective 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 Jeff Burgess, D.D.S., M.S.D., director of Oral Care Research Associates, “The results of this survey showing improved sleep quality support the findings of our earlier clinical study which demonstrated that use of XyliMelts slow-release adhering discs while sleeping significantly improved perceived oral wetness upon awakening in the morning.”
Additional benefits of XyliMelts include:
- Stimulates saliva
- Coats, moisturizes, and lubricates
- Freshens breath
- Can be used with CPAP machines
XyliMelts are currently available online and at Rite Aid pharmacies. Wholesale pricing is available for healthcare professionals. For more information, call 877-672-6541 or visit www.XyliMelts.com.
