Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare is the first product in the dry mouth product category to receive the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs accepted the oral rinse based on its finding that the product is safe and effective in relieving dry mouth symptoms when used as directed.
“Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse addresses an important problem that many people face. By earning the ADA Seal of Acceptance, this product has shown to be safe and effective in helping relieve dry mouth symptoms and will hopefully help consumers identify a trusted solution when shopping for products that address this issue,” said Mia L. Geisinger, DDS, chair of the council’s seal subcommittee.
To earn the seal, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare had to pass ADA laboratory tests and meet ADA and American National Standards Institute-approved dental standards. The company also submitted studies proving clinical safety and efficacy.
Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse is designed to soothe and moisturize the oral cavity for up to four hours while freshening breath. It is alcohol-free and sugar-free and provides a balanced pH, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare also reports. Plus, it can be used up to five times a day with a 30-second rinse each time, used alone or along with toothbrushing.
“We are very honored that Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse received the first ADA Seal of Acceptance in the new dry mouth category,” said Ryan Chung, Biotene brand manager for GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare. “We understand that dry mouth can cause unintended long-term consequences on a person’s oral health, so we are proud to be recognized by the ADA for helping people manage their dry mouth symptoms effectively.”
