OraCoat® XyliMelts® and XyliGel® by Quest Products LLC

Dry Mouth Solutions for Effective Relief.

When patients complain about xerostomia, also known as dry mouth, it is important for professionals to recommend safe and effective solutions for relief. Two options are OraCoat® XyliMelts® slow-release discs and XyliGel® lubricating gel for dry mouth and tooth decay.

XyliMelts are oral-adhering discs that stick to the gums, releasing 550 mg of xylitol, to stimulate saliva and reduce plaque. They also act as an oral lubricant, coating and keeping the mouth moist for long-lasting relief, day and night. XyliMelts are nonacidic with a pH of 8 and can be safely used during sleep. A variety of flavors are available, including mild mint, slightly sweet (mint-free), and cinnamon.

XyliGel for dry mouth and tooth decay is a soothing gel that lubricates the mouth with 17% xylitol. It is for those with considerably low saliva levels, or those who prefer a gel formula for immediate relief. Effective for day and night use, XyliGel increases saliva and coats the mouth and lips, helping to relieve dry mouth symptoms and reduce new plaque formation. The gel has a buffered pH of 7.4 to neutralize oral acidity.

XyliMelts can be found on the retail shelves of CVS, Rite Aid, and other select stores. Both products can be ordered at: To learn more, visit:
