Biotene Dry Mouth Causes and Reviews
Dry mouth is the feeling that there is not enough saliva in your mouth. Everyone has a dry mouth once in a while - if they are nervous, upset or under stress. But if you have a dry mouth all or most of the time, it can be uncomfortable and can lead to serious health problems.
Symptoms of dry mouth include
- A sticky, dry feeling in the mouth
- Trouble chewing, swallowing, tasting, or speaking
- A burning feeling in the mouth
- A dry feeling in the throat
- Cracked lips
- A dry, rough tongue
- Mouth sores
- An infection in the mouth
Dry mouth is not a normal part of aging. Causes include some medicines, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and nerve damage. Salivary gland diseases, Sjogren's syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes can also cause dry mouth. Treatment depends on the cause. Things you can do include sipping water, avoiding drinks with caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol, and chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless hard candy.

Biotene Dry Mouth Reviews
|Sat, 11 Feb 2012|
I don't have or feel like I have a Dry Mouth. After visiting the dentist, they suggest I try Biotene because my tongue has cracks in it. I eat and like a lot of spicy foods, but I don't have any medical conditions. I tried the mouth wash and now after a few rinses my tongue feels sore and it is sensitive to eating. Is this common or normal and will this cease after getting use to this product?

After using Biotene mouthwash to treat Dry Mouth, I experienced soreness on my tongue and gums. They felt raw and it was painful to eat. Discontinued use - it took several days for the soreness to go away.
