A lillte dab at night after I brush my teeth lasts all night. It is quite expensive, so I normally use less that advertised. I found that the smaller amount works just fine. It took a little getting use to. Then it was like an old friend. Told my dentist this worked best, and lasted all night. Would recommend it to anyone who has dry mouth from meds.

I have used this gel day and night for over 10 years and now they have ruined it. It is NOT a gel anymore - it is now runny, tastes bad, and is also sweetened with sorbitol and xylitol (originally only contained xylitol). I do not know what I am going to do now that Biotene has made this USELESS to help with my dry mouth. Over the years I have tried many different brands and none were as effective as the ORIGINAL Biotene Dry Mouth Gel. I am now looking for something to replace this terrible product. I don't know why companies change good products - I suppose this change will make a bigger profit IF they do not lose all their customers. I have not even mentioned that it now also contains Propylparaben (a not so good for you preservative). I have not looked up all the new ingredients to see where they come from. Here is what is in the "new improved pH balance" Biotene Oral Balance Dry Mouth Gel: Glycerine, Water, Sorbitol, Xylitol, Carbomer, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Sodium Hydroxide, Propylparaben. The ingredients are VERY different, it is not a minor change. I wish they still offered the ORIGINAL. I can only hope I can find something from another company that will help my dry mouth.

        Comments about Biotene Oral Balance, Dry Mouth Moisturizing Gel, 1.5 oz:

        I had radiation therapy as part of cancer treatment when I was 16. Thirty years later I still have severe dry mouth. It is particularly bad at night. I wake up a lot with a severely parched mouth. If I put a little dab of Biotene gel on my teeth and it keeps my mouth moist for hours and allows me to sleep for longer intervals of time.

          Use nightly @ bedtime...works until AM...saves me money in the long run by eliminating/delaying additional dental work that results from dry mouth.
          Also, very good at healing occassional mouth ulcers.
          But is very expensive...only buy it if you really NEED it!

            Not a good as the mint flavor; however, it works good for dry mouth. Watch the size - I thought I was buying the large tubes. These cost more than what I paid for the larger size in the past. I will only buy these if they go on sale.

            Comments about Biotene Oral Balance, Dry Mouth Moisturizing Gel, 1.5 oz:

            I've been using a CPAP for about twenty years. Recently, I've started waking up with a dry mouth. I don't know if it's related to the CPAP, but it is persistent. I tried Biotene rinse. Didn't work. The Biotene Gel works. I put about three eights of an inch in my mouth, and I'm good for the night. Once in a while I have to add a little more during the night. I think it depends on how much I use.

                Comments about Biotene Oral Balance, Dry Mouth Moisturizing Gel, 1.5 oz:

                I am a CPAP user and I found this product about a year ago. It was very helpful for my dry mouth and lasted for several hours. I was very pleased with it. I am EXTREMELY upset that the "new and improved" version is no longer really a gel and it disappears within about 30 seconds and no longer helps with dry mouth at night. Unfortunately, not realzing the formula had changed, I bought two tubes ...I will be looking for a new product.
