Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dry Mouth?
Dry mouth can describe both the feeling of dry mouth (xerostomia) and the physical reduction in the flow of saliva (hyposalivation).

What are some symptoms of Dry Mouth?
Symptoms may include:

  • A sticky, dry feeling in the mouth,
  • Problems chewing, swallowing, tasting and speaking
  • Bad breath
  • Cracked lips
  • Dry irritated tongue
  • Mouth sores
  • Sleep interruptions due to thirst
  • Gum inflammations
  • Difficulty wearing dentures
  • Dry throat

What causes Dry Mouth?
A number of factors could cause dry mouth. A few of the most common are:

  • Side effects of medication. More than 400 medications list dry mouth as a side effect.
  • Multiple Medications. The more medications you take, the more likely you are to have dry mouth.
  • Disease. Some diseases affect the salivary glands, which results in dry mouth. i.e. Sjögren's Syndrome, HIV/AIDS, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.*
  • Radiation therapy. The salivary glands can be damaged if exposed to radiation during cancer treatment.
  • Chemotherapy. Drugs used to treat cancer can make the saliva thicker, causing the mouth to feel dry.
  • Nerve Damage. Injury to the head or neck can damage the nerves that tell the salivary glands to make saliva.
  • * Biotène products are not indicated for the prevention or treatment of mouth infections, periodontal disease, or sleep problems.

Why is saliva so important?
Saliva provides a ‘first defense’ against chemical, mechanical and infectious attacks. It also:

  • Helps you digest food
  • Protects your teeth from decay
  • Helps prevent against infections by controlling bacteria in the mouth

Adults and children 6 years of age and older: Brush teeth thoroughly, preferably after each meal or at least twice a day, or as directed by a dentist or doctor.

To minimize swallowing for children under 6, use a pea-size amount and supervise brushing until good habits are established. Children under 6 years ask a dentist or physician.

I used to have constant bad breath and/or a bad taste in my mouth. So...I brushed my teeth more. Eventually I found that the taste in my mouth was dried blood (yuck). Long story short, SLS is really abrasive and I'm not sure why it's found in 99% of soaps/toothpastes/shampoos...except that it's cheap and foamy. I easily save more than the extra this (SLS-Free) toothpaste costs, simply by not having to buy gum/mints/mouthwashes constantly. Biotene does not foam as much as other toothpastes *because* it is SLS-free. Every unbiased reference I've found - including my dentist - has said the foaming isn't what's important, and the mechanical motion of the brush is what loosens and removes the junk in your teeth. Toothpaste is mostly there to make brushing bearable. My only is that you don't get a "minty fresh" flavor all day long. But, anything that stays in your mouth (which is constantly refreshing itself with new saliva) for that many hours can't be natural in my opinion...so I'll deal with it.

My husband has used this for years. After having cavities at every dental visit, even though he takes very good care of his teeth, he uses this and his teeth are in great shape!
