Saliwell sends electrical pulses of specific patterns that stimulate the nerves associated with salivary glands secretion. The stimulated nerves excite both the salivary glands directly to secrete more natural saliva, and stimulate the salivation center of the brain to further command the salivary glands to secrete more saliva.
Yes, Saliwell was found to be effective and safe for dry mouth symptoms. It was tested in fourteen (14) leading medical centers for about four years and about 120 subjects, showing very high success rates (scientifically analyzed) and outstanding user satisfaction. However, each user has his/her unique health condition and only your clinician can assess and determine if Saliwell treatment is indicated for you.
For some persons, the moistening effect is fully felt after some time of consistent use. It may take sometimes even a few months. Thus, use the device as a matter of routine. Also for building muscle, consistent exercising is needed.
Usually, Saliwell is not painful. However, like with any other dental device, you may experience some discomfort. In this case, please consult your clinician promptly, and refrain of using Saliwell until receiving his/her advice.
You should use it on an as-needed basis. Some users report reaching the desired effect using it for one minute 3-4 times a day; others need more time, about five minutes. However, it is recommended not to use Saliwell for more than 10 minutes every hour.
Yes. Saliwell built-in microprocessor reduces the stimulation intensity after several minutes in ON mode. However, a low stimulation level is always generated until the device is turned OFF. This mode is designed especially in case Saliwell is left inadvertently in the mouth during the night.
Place Saliwell in a shaded or dimly lit room. Point the remote control towards the device electronic circuit and press the ON button or OFF button. If Saliwell is working (not broken or powerless) an amber light on the device blinks. If no light is visible, the Saliwell batteries may be out of power.
Yes, the Saliwell electronic circuit may be activated by direct sunlight or strong lights and the batteries may run out of power faster. Also, direct sunlight may deform the device, making it unsuitable for your lower jaw shape.
Saliwell has been tested by leading clinical centers in Europe, showing very high success rates (scientifically analyzed) and outstanding user satisfaction. However, each user has his/her unique health condition and only your clinician can assess and determine if Saliwell treatment is indicated for you.
Inflammation is rarely produced in the area touched by the electrodes or in other areas of the oral cavity. In any case of inflammation, sensitivity, or pain, stop using Saliwell immediately and consult your clinician.
Open the two screws at the back cover of the remote control. Replace the batteries with two, fresh Alkaline only, size AAA batteries. Dispose the old batteries properly in accordance to your local WEEE regulations.
