How does an adhesive tablet work against dry mouth?

Dry mouth occurs when the salivary gland does not produce enough saliva to keep the mucous membranes in the mouth continuously moist. There can be many reasons for this. There may be problems with the salivary glands themselves (e.g. damage to the glands from an infection, or from an auto-immune reaction such as Sjörgens syndrome), as well as with the moisture levels in the oral cavity. For example, due to heavy breathing through the mouth or medication that dries out the mucous membranes. What’s important in this situation is to provide the mucous membranes in the oral cavity with enough moisture.

Adhesive tablets like XyliMelts are excellent for this.

So, what do they do? Simply affix the adhesive tablets to the gums or surface of the teeth. Within a few hours they dissolve, leaving zero residue. Because they dissolve slowly, the tablets deliver a continuous release of ingredients into the oral cavity. This ensures the mucous membranes stay moist by stimulating a regular flow of saliva.

Almost nothing keeps the mouth moist longer than XyliMelts
Solutions for dry mouth are numerous! Mouthwashes, moisturising gels, medications – the list goes on. But the problem with most solutions is that the effect wears off fairly quickly. You apply them once, and the moist film surface is either flushed away by saliva, or ‘swallowed away’ from the oral cavity by normal swallowing.

To benefit from a dry mouth solution, you need a time-release effect – that’s where XyliMelts adhesive tablets come in! They are fixed firmly in one place in the oral cavity and deliver a continuous flow of active ingredients. These form a thin film over the mucous membranes, which keeps them moist and stimulates the glands to produce a continuous flow of saliva. The adhesive tablet dissolves in 4–6 h (depending on conditions within the oral cavity) and during this time it maintains a moist climate within the oral cavity.

The adhesive tablets allow you to get around freely both at night and during the day without worrying about a thing. No more concerns about awkward situations, such as the tablet falling out while you’re asleep at night or during the day in the middle of a conversation. You’re free to go about your day without dry mouth holding you back in any way.

But the best thing about Xylimelts is they also care for your teeth! This is because the active ingredients xylitol and calcium carbonate also prevent plaque and tooth decay. What’s more, Xylimelts are 100% natural and contain no artificial flavours or colours.
