Rest easy: With new advancements in treatment, there’s no need to suffer from sleep disturbance due to dry mouth.

(NAPSI)—If a good night’s sleep seems a distant dream because dry mouth keeps disturbing your slumber, you may be able to wake up to some good news.

The condition, also called xerostomia and increasingly common with age, can be treated. Symptoms include cracked lips, bad breath, tooth decay and problems swallowing or chewing. Among the factors that can cause dry mouth are certain prescription drugs, mouth breathing while sleeping, CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines for sleep apnea, autoimmune diseases such as Sjögren’s syndrome, and head or neck radiation therapy. Dry mouth caused by low saliva is uncomfortable and can not only disrupt sleep, it can reduce your quality of life all day long.

Management of dry mouth can include products to lubricate the mouth and protect the teeth. But many cannot be used while sleeping and won’t last through the night.

Fortunately, one new treatment advancement, XyliMelts® for Dry Mouth, uses oral adhering discs to time-release xylitol and oral lubricant into saliva while you sleep, the time when dry mouth is worst and saliva is lowest, to moisturize and coat the mouth, stimulate saliva and reduce tooth decay. Oral adhering disc technology enables XyliMelts to stick to gums or teeth for all-night relief. It’s available at Rite Aid pharmacies starting March 2013 or by calling (877) 672-6541.
