Dry mouth is more than a nuisance, it can lead to dental problems and can interfere with sleep.
Dry mouth is usually caused by one of the following:
- Sjogrens Disease (a condition where the body attacks the fluid producing cells, affecting the saliva producing cells in the mouth)
- Radiation to the head/neck
- Use of an apnea machine
Xylitol Melts are a simple product that you can buy online that will deliver immediate results. Xylimelts are little discs that stick to the inside of your gums and slowly melt, delivering a natural sugar called Xylitol to lubricate the mouth and prevent bacterial growth. It is safe with all medications. Simply place a disc on the inside of your gums as needed. Two discs at night before bed on opposite sides of the mouth will provide a moisturizing effect during sleep.
