Moisturizing anti-caries protection and prevention in a great-tasting rinse.

Reduced flow of saliva in the mouth can be very uncomfortable for patients and put them at risk for developing dental decay, demineralization and sensitivity.With a clean, mint flavor, ACT® Dry Mouth Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash can help moisturize oral mucosa, as well as help strengthen teeth, remineralize enamel, prevent caries and freshen breath.

Mode of Action

ACT® Dry Mouth Rinse is formulated with three intensive polyol moisturizers and two hydrating polymers to coat oral tissues and lock in moisture. The non-irritating solution helps to create a pH-neutral environment in the mouth. Because reduced salivary flow can lower intraoral pH and increase the risk for dental decay and demineralization, consistent use of a neutral sodium fluoride rinse can help bind to teeth, oral mucosa and plaque, prevent demineralization, promote remineralization and ultimately serve as an effective defense against caries.2,4
