After lots of testing amongst CPAP and Ventilation Users, we are pleased to add the XyliMelts Dry Mouth Discs to our shop, due to receiving amazing positive results from adults suffering from a dry mouth whilst sleeping with their mask on. These clever discs adhere to the gum whilst sleeping!

 

Despite the use of a CPAP or Ventilator Humidifier, some mask users still continue to suffer from the unpleasant issue of a dry mouth, which can also cause interrupted sleep and sometimes unnecessary bathroom trips, as people often have to turn to drinking water during the night to try to ease this problem.

The air from the CPAP or Ventilator can cause dry mouth problems, but also bear in mind that a lot of medications people need to take for various medical conditions are also responsible - as are certain medical conditions themselves, like Sjögren's Syndrome and Diabetes etc., so the air pressure in the mask tends to exacerbate this.


How XyliMelts Can Help.....

XyliMelt Discs can really help to alleviate a dry mouth as the discs can be used during sleep and they adhere firmly to the gums and teeth. 

The XyliMelts slowly release their ingredients to increase saliva, thus lubricating the mouth for several hours, until they eventually dissolve. 

Additionally, the ingredient (Xylitol may also help prevent tooth decay, which is probably why dentists are recommending XyliMelts to their own patients). 

Xylitol is already used for treating children with middle ear infections, as a sugar substitute for diabetics and in dentistry, and there are no known side effects in humans.  However, please be aware that Xylitol is POISONOUS TO DOGS so always be careful where you store it.

The XyliMelts are sold as a Box Containing 40 Discs, and are available in Mild Mint or Mint-free.

Ingredients: 500mg xylitol (active ingredient), acacia gum, cellulose gum, calcium carbonate, magnesium stearate, and nothing else!


OraCoat's Information on XyliMelts.....

About OraCoat's XyliMelts

XyliMelts are fully-dissolving oral adhering discs whose active ingredients, Xylitol and cellulose gum, are slowly released in the mouth. They provide hours of discreet relief as the ingredients coat, moisturise, lubricate, soothe and stimulate saliva.  Plus, XyliMelts adhere strongly to the teeth and gums, so they can be safely used whilst sleeping - when dry mouth is worse.

XyliMelts can also be used with CPAP machines, mandibular devices, braces and dentures, and can even be used whilst eating and drinking.

About Xylitol

The key ingredient in XyliMelts is Xylitol, which is a natural food substance that coats the mouth to reduce plaque and tooth decay.  It is a natural sweetener, which is comparable to sucrose in sweetness but contains fewer calories and fights cavities.

Benefts of Xylitol (500mg):-

  • Increases saliva flow, which not only keeps your mouth moist, but helps maintain healthy teeth and reduces bad breath.
  • Reduces plaque and tooth decay - frequent use of candy with sugar or starches to relieve dry mouth promotes tooth decay.
  • Reduces plaque and tooth decay.
  • Coats, moisturises and lubricates along with other benefts which have been reported in published literature.

Adhering Disc Technology:-

  • The tan, dimpled side discreetly sticks to gums or teeth.
  • No effect on talking or appearance.
  • Stays in place and safe for use during sleep.
  • Allows use whilst sleeping, when saliva flow is lowest, for the most effective delivery of xylitol for cavities control.

Directions for Use.....

  • Place the tan coloured adhesive side of the disc on the gums or teeth on the outside of a molar, upper or lower, with the white side touching your cheek.
  • Use your tongue to fine-tune the position to a comfortable spot.
  • Leave the disc in place for 10 seconds.  Do not touch it with your tongue or apply pressure - just leave it still and it will start to adhere (it can be relocated by dislodging it and repositioning within the first minute).  Full adhesion is achieved after 5 minutes.
  • While sleeping you can use 2 discs if necessary, by placing one on each side of your mouth.


Hope2Sleep's Observations for Mask Users.....

We carried out lots of tests amongst CPAP and Ventilation users before deciding whether to stock the XyliMelts, and as well as being astounded at the positive feedback from people (including a Sjögren's Syndrome sufferer who also uses CPAP), we were amazed to hear (and experience first hand) the positive air force going through the masks didn't cause the XyliMelts to become dislodged from the gum. 

It can take a bit of experimenting to decide which part of the mouth to place the discs though, and do consider which part of your mouth area the mask comes in contact with as it would be better to avoid this area.  It is also worth experimenting whether you would only need to use one disc per night, or whether two would work better for you, as some mask users needed 2, yet others got good results with just 1 disc.

Whilst we don't fool ourselves into thinking every product will work for every person, for people with dry mouth issues these XyliMelts would certainly be worth a try!


IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Whilst there are no known side effects in humans XYLITOL IS TOXIC TO DOGS so please keep XyliMelts well away from your precious pets.

XyliMelts IS NOT RECOMMENDED for children under the age of 6 due to risk of choking.

Not cheap... but so worth it.
Sunday, 10 September 2017  | 

I have the Amara View mask and had a lot of discomfort with dry mouth. I have tried both the mint and mint free - prefer the mint for that 'fresh(er) mouth' feel. I'm on my second batch of two boxes now, they really do work.

Easy to use
Saturday, 12 August 2017  | 

Tried these out last night. Only used 1. Was very easy to position and attach to just above my molars. Didn't come loose. Eventually dissolved completely by morning. Seemed to keep my mouth moist most of the night. Real test will come in the winter when the heating is on and the window is closed. Will probably have to use two at a time then but we will just have to wait and see. So far I'm quite impressed.

A little gem
Monday, 31 July 2017  | 

These really do work for dry mouth.
They take a little while to get used to and will probably last about 5 hours.
Only caveat is that they sometimes do not stick to the gum
However, most effective product I have found for dry mouth.
Really pleased there is a site in the UK to but them from as I have been importing from the USA.

That's such a shame Graham as the Xylimelts are helping so many people with dry mouth. I must say I had difficulty at first getting the 'right' position for my mouth and find they work best for me between both the gum and tooth of my first upper right double teeth, and I have to resist the temptation not to touch them with my tongue for about 10 minutes.

Xylimelts mint flavour discs
Monday, 10 July 2017  | 

Small white and brown discs to encourage the mouth to produce saliva...well worth a try..nice flavour..the first night was bliss. One Disc lasted all night..great adherence.. ..saliva production very good. Felt much mire comfortable without my mouth feeling so dry..subsequent nights tried 2 discs..but a reduction in saliva and the discs had melted by 4 hours..possibly just me?...but still maintain they are worth a try..anything that helps..😁

Response:

Thanks for your in-depth review Louise. Just a thought that when you tried 2 the saliva may have increased which caused them to melt quicker. Just my thoughts and not sure if I'm right! Kath

Whole Hearted Recommend These
Tuesday, 4 July 2017  | 

After a recent admission to hospital I ordered these because of a dry mouth in the morning and I was on a lot of medication which dried my mouth worse. I ordered the non mint variety and used one tablet each night on the left hand side upper gum. I place mine towards the back of my mouth as they can be a little sharp if you place them near to your canine tooth as per the instructions.
I wholeheartedly recommend this product if you suffer from a dry mouth even if you have a humidifier attached. They melt slowly. I find these are a lot better than the lactic acid drops and I find one is enough for me each night.

Thank you.
David

Camping with xylimelts
Monday, 3 July 2017  | 

I was introduced to a sample pack of these at the hospital because the battery pack I was borrowing for camping wouldn't last long for my trip if I needed it to power the humidifier as well.

I am an absolute convert - one of these little tabs sticks to the inside of my cheek and keeps my mouth moist all night. No more sore throat dry mouth and no need to travel with the extra bulk of the humidifier
