BELLEVUE, Wash.—OraCoat, a division of OraHealth, produces a line of all-natural products conducive for the use of orthodontic patients suffering from brace irritation and difficulty brushing their teeth with braces.
Pediatric patients, and brace wearers in general, often experience mouth sores as a result of the brackets rubbing against the inside of the cheeks, creating exasperating and often painful mouth sores. Although home remedies such as rinsing with salt water and avoiding acidic foods can help allay these symptoms, for many patients, the sores persist.
OraCoat H-B12 Melts provide long-lasting pain relief and healing support for mouth sores, cuts, wounds, brace irritation, and mouth ulcers. With active ingredients of hyaluronan and bioactive B12, the adhering discs support a healthy mouth lining and work with braces and other orthodontic appliances.
Moreover, pediatric brace wearers also run the risk of suffering tooth decay as a result of food and plaque getting trapped between the brackets and wires. To prevent permanent damage to tooth enamel, in addition to proper cleaning, XyliGel neutralizes acids in the mouth with a buffered pH of 7.4 and holds 17 percent xylitol against the teeth to reduce plaque formation.
Effective for both daytime and nighttime use, XyliGel stimulates saliva production and coats the mouth and lips to relieve dry mouth. The gel reduces plaque and acidity on the teeth.* XyliGel is the newest member of the OraCoat brand family of products which includes XyliMelts oral adhering discs, rated by a Clinicians Report survey as the most effective remedy for combating dry mouth.†
