Biotene: Fast Relief for Oral Dryness and Chronic Dry Mouth or Xerostomia

Chronic dry mouth or xerostomia is a common problem that can affect about 25% of all adults. Biotene offers a full line of products that can help alleviate dry mouth symptoms triggered by medications, diabetes, Sjögren’s Syndrome or a variety of other causes.

Do you have chronic dry mouth?
Dry mouth, also called xerostomia, is a condition that can interfere with everyday activities, such as eating, talking or sleeping. Some common symptoms of dry mouth include:

  • Bad breath
  • A sticky, dry or sore mouth
  • Cracking at the corners of the mouth
  • A red and parched mouth
  • Blisters and mouth ulcers
  • A pebbled look to the tongue
  • Difficulty eating dry or spicy foods
  • Waking up with a dry mouth at night

What is dry mouth or xerostomia?
Dry mouth, also called xerostomia, is a persistent feeling that there is not enough saliva in your mouth, making talking and eating difficult or embarrassing. Saliva lubricates and protects your mouth from infection by bacteria, from chemicals in the atmosphere and from hot food and drinks. Saliva coats your teeth and protects them. Reduced saliva flow, which causes dry mouth, can cause dental decay and contribute to bad breath.

Do I have dry mouth?
The effects of dry mouth may be severe, moderate or mild. Mild sufferers of dry mouth are unlikely to even know they are affected. Maybe you've noticed food sticking to the roof of your mouth and food just won't go down? You probably see your dry mouth symptoms as normal, and simply try drinking more.

If you're a moderate dry mouth sufferer, you may also be unaware of it, even though you're licking your lips constantly and finding that your mouth feels sticky or dry. You might be avoiding certain foods, and denture-wearers will find that their dentures don't stay in place. You probably try to alleviate symptoms of dry mouth by drinking more, sucking sweets or applying lip balm.

Severe sufferers of dry mouth will find that dry mouth symptoms have a serious impact on their quality of life. As a severe sufferer of chronic dry mouth, you may experience a sore mouth or tongue when eating, cracked lips, blisters and mouth ulcers. Your dentist may be seeing rampant decay, serious plaque levels and food debris, fungal infections, a "pebbled" tongue and red and shiny tongue and cheeks.

What are the causes of dry mouth?
Reduction in saliva flow, which results in dry mouth and throat, may have one or more of five underlying causes:

  1. Medicines. The more medicines you take, the more likely you are to suffer from chronic dry mouth. Many everyday medicines cause dry mouth, including over-the-counter cold remedies and antihistamines. Anti-depressants, some beta-blockers, anti-hypertensives and diuretics can also be common dry mouth causes.
  2. Age. As people get older, they tend to take more medicines; half of all Americans aged 60-plus take three or more prescription medicines on a regular basis. This is the primary reason why older people are more likely to suffer from chronic dry mouth. Older people are more likely to suffer from cancer and Sjögren's Syndrome.
  3. Sjögren's Syndrome. This chronic condition, in which the body's immune system malfunctions and attacks the body's own tear and salivary glands, is a major cause of dry mouth.
  4. Diabetes. All types of diabetes can cause increased urination or an underlying metabolic or hormonal problem, which results in dry mouth.
  5. Cancer and Its Treatment. Neck and head cancer patients who have been surveyed ranked dry mouth as one of their most distressing symptoms. Radiotherapy is the worst culprit, affecting the salivary glands and causing a near-total reduction in saliva flow. Many never regain their full flow.

What are the symptoms of dry mouth?
Dry mouth sufferers often don't notice that they are suffering from dry mouth until their saliva flow has already dropped by 50%. Symptoms of dry mouth include: a feeling of soreness in the mouth; stickiness to the touch and cracking at the corners of the mouth; a red and parched mouth or pebbled look to the tongue; difficulty eating dry or spicy foods; food just not tasting like it used to; difficulty speaking; a tendency to wake up more often during the night; bad breath.

Suggested Use

Place approximately a half inch length of the gel directly on the tongue and spread thoroughly inside the mouth. Use gel as required for symptom relief, especially at night or as directed by a dentist or physician.

Children 12 years and under: not for use unless directed by a healthcare professional.

Note: Should be used after rinsing mouth. Use within 3 months after opening. Helps denture wearers, mouth breathers, and is safe to swallow.

Store below 77 degrees Fahrenheit / 25 degrees Celsius.

Warnings

Keep out of reach of children. If symptoms of a dry mouth persist, consult a healthcare professional.

    Perhaps your experience will be different. I really wanted the Biotene gel to work for me. I've used two other Biotene products (the mouthwash and moisturizing spray) with great success. While this gel has a much better flavor than the spray, when I used the gel, it was like I hadn't put anything in my mouth. It had absolutely no effect.

    I recommend this product!
    I have a very dry mouth plus oral lichen planus on the edge of my tongue on the left side. I use about half an inch of biotene gel when I go to bed. I spread it particularly around the back part of my mouth. When I wake up my mouth feels good, and not so dry and unpleasant the way it used to. I give this product the highest possible rating.
