How does the XEROS Dry Mouth Pump work?
The XEROS is programmed by you, the user, to pump water into his/her oral cavity for so many seconds (duration) over so many minutes (interval). For example, you can program the XEROS to pump water for 10 seconds every 10 minutes. Each user is different however the setting during sleeping does not have to be as aggressive as when exercising, for example, unless you wrestle in your sleep :O)
The XEROS also has a BOOST BUTTON which allows you to deliver water to your mouth anytime for as long as you want without interfering with the program.
The water first hits the small soft fluffy sponge you have in your mouth. The sponge absorbs the water then gently releases it into your oral cavity. After awhile you aren't even aware that it is happening.
