New Hydrating products to help ease symptoms of dry mouth

About 1 in 5 people around the world experience dry mouth (also known as xerostomia) ¹, which causes discomfort and can affect the ability to speak, swallow, and sleep. It is linked to ageing, medical conditions, such as Sjögren's syndrome, Parkinson's, Alzheimer’s and diabetes, the menopause, and medications or treatment, including chemotherapy. Lacking saliva can also lead to oral health problems, with an increased risk of cavities being a major concern. Water is often the standard remedy but offers usually only brief relief. TePe is launching a new product range with a more lasting solution to help tackle the symptoms of dry mouth. With this addition to the wide range of oral care products, TePe is putting extra focus on the needs of the large and diverse group of people suffering from dry mouth.

TePe Hydrating Mouthwash™ is a gentle formula which soothes and moisturises the oral cavity for long-lasting comfort from dry mouth. The hydrating oral care solution contains 0.2% fluoride to provide effective protection against cavities - a crucial defence against the increased oral health risks associated with dry mouth. To cater to patient preference and those with dry, sensitive mouths, TePe Hydrating Mouthwash is available in two flavours, mild apple-peppermint and unflavoured.

TePe Hydrating Mouth Gel™ is for dry mouth sufferers seeking immediate comfort. TePe Hydrating Mouth Gel offers a gentle, moisturising solution. Available in a mild peppermint and unflavoured variety, TePe Hydrating Mouth Gel soothes the oral cavity, providing sustained comfort.

It also has a convenient pump dispenser to facilitate easy application, making it an ideal on-the-go solution.

Kelly Dunwell, Brand Manager at TePe UK, said "Millions of people suffer daily with the uncomfortable and at times, debilitating symptoms of dry mouth. Along with the physical side effects, our latest research shows that one in three² dry mouth sufferers also experience negative self-confidence due to the condition.

“Yet, effective oral care solutions for dry mouth remain scarce. There is also a lack of awareness about the condition and its implications for oral health.

“TePe Hydrating Mouthwash and TePe Hydrating Mouth Gel were developed by dental experts in response to demand for an oral health solution that provides long-lasting comfort from dry mouth symptoms, whilst protecting the teeth and gums.

“The new hydrating range reflects our commitment to developing high quality oral health products, which promote long-term wellbeing and quality of life.”
