The American Dental Association (ADA) has announced that Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse is the first product to earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance in the Dry Mouth product category.
The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs in June accepted the oral rinse, a product of GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSK), based on its finding that the product is safe and has shown efficacy in temporarily relieving dry mouth symptoms, when used as directed.
“Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse addresses an important problem that many people face,” said Mia L. Geisinger, DDS, MS, chair of the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs’ Seal subcommittee. “By earning the ADA Seal of Acceptance, this product has shown to be safe and effective in helping relieve dry mouths symptoms and will hopefully help consumers identify a trusted solution when shopping for products that address this issue.”
To earn the Seal, the product’s manufacturer, GSK, 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.
