Objective: This study measured the efficacy and the safety of OraMoist mucoadhesive disks for relief of dry mouth.
Methodology: OraMoist mucoadhesive disks and placebo mucoadhesive disks were applied three times daily to 27 participants in a double-masked, randomized, controlled crossover study. Differences in subjective ratings of dry mouth and salivary flow rates were measured.
Results: The disks showed statistically significant improvement in the subjective experience of moistness and salivary flow rates across the 60-minute period after application and compared with baseline measures after one and two weeks of use. The disks were well tolerated with no adverse affect reported.
