Frequently Asked Questions:
Do XyliMelts cause indigestion or diarrhea? If their systems are not used to it, many people find that they have gut discomfort when they ingest more than about 10 grams of xylitol. The time-release of XyliMelts allows use of a small amount of xylitol (less than 5 grams per day), eliminating all risk of discomfort.
What would happen if I inhaled a XyliMelt disc? Whether the disc is in your mouth or throat or lung, the disc will entirely dissolve, so nothing would need to be done but give it time to dissolve.
Use two discs before bed, one on each side of the mouth, in the lower or upper part of each cheek. During the day, use as needed. Swallow as it slowly dissolves. The tan, dimpled side will adhere to teeth or gums.
Place a disc at the gum line between your cheek and gums (upper or lower portion of mouth), with the tan adhesive side against your gums. Use your tongue to push disc to a comfortable spot. Once there, do not move it with your tongue for 30 seconds, as this movement will disrupt adhesion. Swallow as it slowly dissolves.
Before bedtime: Use two (2) discs, placing one on each side of the mouth.
Everyday use: Use at least 3 or 4 more discs during the day and as needed.
Xylitol, vegetable gum, cellulose gum, mild natural peppermint, stearate of calcium/magnesium, and nothing else. Contains no: animal products, fermentable sugar, color, dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives and no products of nuts, corn, wheat, rice, grain, gluten, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, milk or yeast.
Store in a dry place
Frequent use of candy with sugar or starches to relieve dry mouth promotes tooth decay. Xylitol does not promote and may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Not recommended for children under age 5 - risk of choking.
Do not use while sleeping where you are likely to pry it loose with your tongue - it might lodge in your throat or lung, causing discomfort until it dissolves.
Do not give xylitol to dogs or other pets.
Carbohydrate exchange for diabetes: Xylitol raises blood glucose half as much per unit weight as typical carbohydrates.

iHerb Customer Reviews
It has been very difficult to find a product for dry mouth. There are mouthwashes, toothpaste, and gels. These either taste horrible or don't last very long. The XliMelts(ORH-00072) are easy to carry in a pocket and have a mild spearmint taste. They are so convenient to use before going to bed. There is no mess to deal with. Simply put 1-2 mints between your gum and teeth. I wake in the morning without that dry taste in my mouth. These mints do not cause cavities; are simple to use; and can be used as needed. XliMelts are still difficult to find in the stores. Your web site has been such a help. A few clicks on the keys and my order is filled and comes directly to my home. Thank you for your good service.
I have had chronic dry mouth ever since I started on the Cpap machine 3 years ago which also caused dental problems. That is until I started with the xylimelt regimentation (one xylimelt in each cheek at bedtime) that was about ten months ago. Since then the dry mouth and tooth problem is gone. They really work and I would not be without them. I use them every night. Charles Hardy
