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!


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.

These are a great help once I got used to sticking them to my gums and was confident that they wouldn't come unstuck. I sleep with my mouth open sometimes and so they prevent waking up with a dry mouth and needing a drink.

Great product
Tuesday, 6 February 2018  | 

I was waking around six times a night with my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth. My mouth was so dry it hurt. So was drinking lots of water at night. Since using these tablets (one each side of my mouth ) the difference it has made is phenomenal. I now get a good nights sleep thanks to these tablets. No more dry mouth. So am now as a new mask user able to get a great nights sleep .

I suffer terribly from a dry mouth during the night, I have to keep taking my mask off to have a drink so of course I bought thus product and couldn't wait to try them. I'm afraid they were useless for me. They wouldn't stay in place no matter how long I left them or held them to 'set' and the one time they stayed where I put them, still not fastened in place, they lasted less than an hour and I didn't find any relief at all. My daughter tried one to see what results she got and they were just the same as mine. So disappointed they didn't work.

That's really strange Jan with both of you saying you had trouble getting them to stick. Most people do manage to (with perseverance). Such a shame as they help so many people.

End to dry mouth

These little disks have solved my dry mouth problem, which was putting me off continuing my CPAP therapy. They donít always stay where I put them, but they do work well for me.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but purchaser to pay return postage.  This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.

If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.

Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked.  However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.

If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
