OraCoat

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.

I cannot recommend these tablets enough after years of trying so much medication for dry mouth whilst sleeping. In fact I don't think that I could have carried on with my CPAP without them. Kath and John were so very helpful and the service excellent. Would highly recommend this medication to dry mouth sufferers. Thank you.

Big improvement
Tuesday, 15 May 2018  | 

These work well but not perfect as I still had a little bit of a dry mouth. The problem is when this happens you remove your mask for a drink then it is easy to fall back to sleep without putting it back on. I have cured this by inserting a drinks tube into my mask with a camelbak bite valve on it. If my mouth is dry I push the tube further in bite on the valve suck up a bit of drink, pull the tube back, and go back to sleep refreshed without removing my mask. maybe if a manufacturer introduced this to their full face masks we would all benefit

Interesting tip thanks Phillip which will hopefully help others. Also, if you don't have a CPAP humidifier I would ask your clinic for one to help further with your dry mouth. Kath

Sleep Peacefully!
Tuesday, 17 April 2018  | 

I don't have sleep apnoea but use the hope2sleep site regulary to help support my husband who is a sufferer. In doing so, I discovered this product and bought some for myself. I must be a mouth breather during sleep and as a lady in my 50s have had an issue with a very dry mouth at night. So much so that I was waking up every hour and drinking large amounts of water. This of course resulted in additional bathroom visits! Anyway .... these amazing little mouth discs have been a godsend. They adhere well to the gum/tooth and gradually dissolve. I find each disk lasts up to 4 hours. I only use one at a time and if necessary apply a second to the gum half way through the night. They gently moisten the mouth. XyliMelts appear to have broken the cycle as things have improved considerably and I am making a real effort to keep my mouth shut (ha ha!) .... as you all know, sleep deprivation is a dreadful thing and I was probably psychologically keyed up about it all anyway which didn't help. I highly recommend this product. It is expensive but effective and what price a good night's sleep?!

XyliMelts Dry Mouth Discs
Tuesday, 17 April 2018  | 

Discs seem to work. Unfortunately I ordered the mint ones, which I do not like the taste of. There is also a chance that if the disc comes loose, during sleep, it will end up a gooey mess inside your mask (happened to me). But if you are really bothered with a dry mouth, certainly worth a try.

This was a top up purchase of Xlimelts used to help alleviate dry mouth on CPAP. No matter what I do I can't shut my mouth or breath through my nose so my mouth, gums and tongue become bone dry with no saliva during CPAP even though I have a humidifier attached. This product does help,somewhat to alleviate this, and I prefer the mint option as it tastes fresher. Often however the discs have not completely melted which only goes to show how little saliva I create while the CPAP is pushing air in its nightly work.
