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 use before going to bed. My teeth remain healthy as a result. A dry mouth gives you bad breath, leads to tooth decay, and makes it difficult to talk sometimes.

            I have serious issues with dry mouth and cannot sleep at night when my mouth gets dry. It gets completely dry. The Biotene Oral Balance is the most effective saliva substitute I have found. I could not get by without it.

                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.
