Deciding Which Dry Mouth Treatment Is Right For You
Different people obtain different results when using medications and products for dry mouth relief, so we provide more than just one type of product. Our more popular treatments for xerostomia include SalivaSure® saliva stimulating tablets, Salese™ and Xylimelts®, which slow dissolving soft lozenges. These can be found at our online store. These products deliver essential oils and other beneficial ingredients to reduce bacterial levels in the mouth to fight the symptoms of dry mouth and throat. These can be found on our online store. The pleasant minty taste and fresh mouth sensation
The pleasant minty taste and fresh mouth sensation last for a long period of time – up to several hours. Salese™ and Xylimelts® are sustained release products that deliver active ingredients efficiently and continuously in small doses. The extended contact with the beneficial agents increases both the antibacterial benefits and the fresh mouth-feel essential to those suffering from Dry Mouth Syndrome.
Salese™ and Xylimelts® are easy to use and convenient to carry. Xylimelts® are especially helpful for people who experience dry mouth issues while sleeping. Very importantly these products dissolve the biofilm that exists in the mouth, particularly on the tongue, and kills the bacteria that cause bad breath or halitosis, tooth decay and gum disease. Salese™ is sugar and alcohol-free — less than 1 calorie — and helps maintain a healthy pH balance in the mouth.
One of the concerns of having a lower salivary output is the increased susceptibility to tooth decay and gum disease due to the higher viscosity of the saliva, the more acidic pH levels, and the increased adherence of plaque or bacteria to the surfaces of the teeth and gums. Patients suffering from dry mouth conditions are much more prone to developing tooth decay, especially around dental restorations or near the gum line.
Fight Xerostima with Hydro Floss Oral Irrigators
The Hydro Floss oral irrigating machines can actually reduce bacterial levels throughout the entire mouth by preventing the adherence of the bacteria and tartar to both the teeth and gum structures. This high-tech device combines magnetohydrodynamics with the properties of an oral irrigator. It looks similar to the traditional water pick but is as different as night and day.
The Hydro Floss™ ionizes water molecules as they pass through the machine. Its effectiveness is not based upon removing plaque and particles the way a Waterpik® does, and in no way should it be compared to a Waterpik®. Having excellent oral hygiene does not mean you won’t benefit from this device. It will cause dramatic changes in everybody’s mouth.
When irrigated throughout the mouth, the ionized water disrupts the mechanism by which bacteria and tartar attach to teeth and gum tissues. Clinical studies have shown an almost 50% reduction in bacteria and a 65% reduction in tartar in the mouth by using a hydro flosser just twice a day (The Clinical Journal of Periodontology, May 1993).
Using this device actively repels the bacteria and tartar in your mouth. Your teeth and tissues will feel as if you just had your teeth professionally cleaned even 6-8 hours after using the device! The Hydro Floss™ will not only prevent the bacteria from adhering to the teeth and gums which can result in tooth decay and gum disease, but it also prevents the halitosis causing bacteria from adhering also.
Biofilm is a filmy layer that envelopes 80% of all bacteria and protects the bacteria from the outside environment by forming a protective layer that is very difficult to penetrate. In order to penetrate the biofilm, it is necessary to have the active ingredients that are capable of penetrating the biofilm and staying contact with the biofilm for an extended period of time. The amount of time required to penetrate the biofilm is usually 30-60 minutes, and most oral products do not lend themselves to this very well and therefore are not effective.
Due to the sustained action of Salese™ it can effectively penetrate the biofilm and kill the bacteria that lie within the biofilm. Salese™ also contains Xylitol, which is a potent inhibitor of bacterial growth. The key to the long-lasting properties of Salese™ is the patented Sure™ Technology. The product’s unique structural combination of active ingredients built upon an advanced polymer delivery system ensures continuous release of beneficial agents for treating a dry mouth and throat condition and providing a continuous fresh mouth sensation and dry mouth relief.
It is important to note that the Salese™ lozenges and Xylimelts® should NOT be chewed or bitten otherwise the long lasting effect will be lost. Many patients have found the length of time for the Salese™ to melt to be as much as 4-6 hours, and the Xylimelts® can last up to 4 hours, thus making both of these products convenient to use and very economical.
