Place the tan adhesive side of disc on the outside of a molar and/or adjoining gums, upper or lower, white side touching cheek. Use your tongue to push the disc to a comfortable spot. Once there, do not touch it with your tongue for 10 seconds, as this movement will disrupt the adhesion.

Before bedtime: Use two (2) discs, placing one on each side of the mouth.

Everyday use: For dry mouth, use more as needed throughout the day.

  • Statistics About Bad Breath
  • Causes of Bad Breath
  • Treatment of Bad Breath

 

Bad breath (clinically termed halitosis) is most commonly the result of poor dental hygiene and can be worsened by certain habits such as smoking or tobacco use. Consumption of odorous foods such as onions, garlic, coffee, alcohol, dairy products, orange juice, and soda can also contribute to bad breath.

However, other lesser known causes of bad breath may also stem from underlying health problems.

STATISTICS ABOUT BAD BREATH

According to the Bad Breath Institute, between 35 and 45 percent of people in the world suffer from bad breath at some point during their day.

In America alone, 80 million people spend over $10 billion on oral hygiene products (mints, gum, mouthwashes, toothpaste, etc.) to combat bad breath each year.

Bad breath sufferers are 60% more likely to suffer from stress, while 57% of bad breath sufferers report feelings of depression due to their condition.

BAD BREATH & ORAL HYGIENE

While only your doctor or dentist can determine the cause and treatment of your bad breath, there are measures you can take to combat halitosis. Good oral hygiene practices and visiting a dentist every six months can dramatically reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, unsightly plaque build-up and tonsil stone formation (tonsilloliths). In addition, regularly brushing teeth and using a non-alcoholic mouthwash to prevent oral anaerobic bacteria build-up in between dental visits will help keep breath consistently smelling fresh and tasting clean.

Brushing one’s teeth at least twice a day, preferably in the morning and before going to bed, effectively removes bacteria that can rapidly accumulate on teeth. When oral hygiene practices aren’t followed, this bacteria will harden into a destructive biofilm called plaque that contributes to chronic bad breath, gum disease, and tooth decay. This biofilm is composed of millions of bacteria directly responsible for chronic and embarrassing bad breath.

CAUSES OF BAD BREATH

Persistent bad breath may be a warning sign of either long term or underlying health issues including:

  • Poor dental hygiene – not brushing or flossing frequently enough
  • Improperly cleaned and/or fitted dentures or braces that trap food particles and bacteria
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products
  • Infections in the mouth – such as gum disease, which is caused by the buildup of plaque on the surface of the teeth, eventually producing toxins that irritate the gums
  • Unhealthy digestive system due to stomach acid deficiency
  • Respiratory tract infections, including pneumonia or bronchitis
  • Chronic sinus infections or postnasal drip
  • Eating odorous food
  • Dry mouth (also known as xerostomia)
  • Illness such as diabetes, cancer, lung disease, kidney failure or liver disease
  • Medications – most commonly antidepressants, diuretics, and even aspirin

BAD BREATH FROM DRY MOUTH

Dry mouth, a condition where the salivary glands are unable to produce normal saliva flow, is a common contributor to halitosis symptoms. One of the best products for dry mouth on the market, OraCoat XyliMelts, can provide you with fast and easy temporary relief until you are able to visit a trusted practitioner. XyliMeltsXyliGel, and XyliGum with xylitol can be used in combination with other over-the-counter breath fresheners such as, gum, mints, mouth rinses, or breath sprays. XyliMelts can also be used while sleeping to prevent bad breath upon awakening.

Xylitol-containing breath mints or chewing gum, like XyliGum, can help eliminate bad breath by increasing saliva flow which washes away bacteria and makes their environment less hospitable. Halitosis is primarily attributed to dry mouth syndrome (xerostomia), a condition in which anaerobic bacteria flourish. Salivation increases when flavors like xylitol stimulate salivary glands and creates a moist, oxygen-rich environment in which anaerobic bacteria (and their smelly gases) cannot survive.

WHAT IS XYLITOL?

Used as an FDA-approved artificial sweetener by many food manufacturing companies, xylitol is a naturally occurring carbohydrate that is also an effective inhibitor of tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease. Unlike regular sugar that can accelerate the development of dental caries, gingivitis and halitosis, xylitol's unique chemical composition prevents bacteria growth encouraged by sugary foods and beverages. In addition, xylitol also inhibits plaque development, promotes teeth remineralization and reduces acidity levels in the mouth.

IS XYLITOL SAFE FOR DIABETICS?

Yes. As a low-calorie sweetener derived from carbohydrates in certain fruits and plants xylitol is not absorbed as quickly as sugar because metabolization of xylitol occurs independently of insulin. This means it will increase blood glucose levels in diabetics only slowly and only half as much as sugar or other common carbohydrates. It is commonly used by people with type 2 diabetes. Visit our How To Treat Dry Mouth from Diabetes page for more information on dry mouth causes and treatments for those living with diabetes.

10 MORE BAD BREATH REMEDIES

  1. In addition to basic oral hygiene, include electric toothbrushes and oral irrigation devices in your daily teeth cleaning practices to remove as much mouth debris as possible.
  2. Bacteria accumulating in tongue fissures are a cause of bad breath—so brush your tongue!
  3. Use mouthwash that does not contain alcohol since alcohol is a known desiccant that can actually dehydrate your mouth and promote bacteria growth.
  4. If you smoke, try to stop or at the very least, cut back. Smoking contributes to chronic dry mouth and gum disease which lead to bad breath.
  5. Drinking water is a great way to hydrate your mouth, kill bacteria that cannot survive in moist, oxygenated environments and remove mouth debris.
  6. To stimulate saliva flow, eat citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and grapes or use XyliMelts.
  7. Chew cardamom, spearmint, fresh parsley or cloves instead of sugary gum to freshen your breath.
  8. Gargle with one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide mixed with three teaspoons of water. Hydrogen peroxide releases oxygen molecules that kills bacteria and reduces the intensity of odorous gases.
  9. Gargling with salt water can help remove dead or loose oral tissues that is a major food source for bad breath bacteria.
  10. Cavities, tonsil stones or gum infections can cause bad breath. If you've tried various bad breath treatments and nothing works, make an appointment with your dentist to have your teeth and gums thoroughly checked.

XYLIMELTS - MILD-MINT

Description:

All Natural – Gluten Free – Non Acidic pH 8 – No Preservatives

What are XyliMelts? XyliMelts are oral-adhering discs that stick to your teeth or gums to relieve persistent dry mouth. Use XyliMelts during the day or while sleeping and find temporary relief from frequent thirst, sticky dryness in the mouth and throat, and other unpleasant dry mouth symptoms. Made with xylitol, a natural sweetener that helps stimulate saliva flow, XyliMelts utilize adhering disc technology to slowly release 550 mg of xylitol, which is most effective when continuously released and lingers in the mouth, especially when used while sleeping when saliva flow is lowest. XyliMelts last for hours, moisturizing and coating the mouth for optimal comfort. The mild mint flavor freshens your breath and the xylitol may reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Why Oral Adhering Discs?

  • Slow release means longer lasting relief
  • Can be comfortably used at night while sleeping
  • Stays put in your mouth
  • Neutralizes Acids and Gluten Free

Find Relief from Dry Mouth Caused by:

Medications

Medications are a common cause of dry mouth—over 500 medications list dry mouth as a potential side effect. This includes antidepressants, antihypertensives, antihistamines, opioids, diuretics, benzodiazepines, and many other types of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Learn more about medications with dry mouth side effects.

DIABETES

Diabetics often experience dry mouth symptoms, typically due to elevated blood sugar and side effects of medications. Dry mouth is both a symptom and cause of high blood sugar. A diabetic’s dry mouth symptoms can lead to widespread tooth decay, resulting in blood sugar increases as the body attempts to fight infection. Read more about treating dry mouth from diabetes.

Sjogren's Syndrome

Sjogren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that destroys the glands that produce tears and saliva. As a result, Sjogren’s is commonly known for its two major symptoms: dry mouth and dry eyes. While some patients may require prescription medications or surgery, Sjogren’s can often be controlled with dry mouth remedies like XyliMelts. Read more about treating dry mouth from Sjogren’s Syndrome.

CANCER TREATMENT

Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatments often struggle with dry mouth symptoms, as salivary glands can be damaged or destroyed during the treatment process. In some cases, cancer-related dry mouth is temporary and will subside once treatment is completed and in other cases it lasts for the lifetime. Read more about finding relief from cancer dry mouth symptoms.

Benefits of Xylitol 

What makes XyliMelts so effective against dry mouth? The key ingredient is xylitol, a naturally sweet carbohydrate found in raspberries, corn, oats, and other plants. Xylitol cannot be digested by the harmful mouth bacteria that cause tooth decay, gum disease, and infections. Plus, when xylitol lingers in the mouth, it stimulates saliva and may reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Clinical studies suggest that you can maximize the benefits of xylitol by slowly releasing a continuous concentration of xylitol in your mouth. To achieve this with xylitol gum, you’d need to work through 6-9 pieces of gum per day and you would still miss the sleeping hours. XyliMelts help solve this problem by utilizing adhering disc technology that releases just the right concentration of xylitol over time—meaning hours of dry mouth relief for you as the disc coats, moisturizes, and increases saliva flow, especially while sleeping when dry mouth is worst.

XYLIMELTS - SLIGHTLY SWEET/MINT-FREE
