OraHealth has introduced a new treatment for dry mouth, the company said.

The Bellevue, Wash.-based oral health products manufacturer described XyliMelts for Dry Mouth as all-natural, oral-adhering discs that coat and soothe the mouth. The disks time-release xylitol and oral lubricant day and night to reduce tooth decay.

The company said the technology behind XyliMelts allows them to discretely stick to gums or teeth, making them ideal for use during sleep to avoid sleep disturbance, touting a clinical study published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene indicating that use of the discs “significantly” improved perceived oral wetness upon awakening in the morning.
