    I use Biotene Oral Balance Dry Mouth Gel everynight and I put it on the roof of my mouth. I rarely have to reapply during the night. The only problem is finding it in the store when I need to buy more. I always buy at least six at a time. If you have a dry mouth problem, please try this and tell all your friends with the same problem.

    Beware the new formula for Oral Balance

    Beware - the formula for my beloved Oral Balance has been radically changed, and for the worse. Those good for your mouth enzymes are gone, and it now contains sodium hydroxide which burns my mouth, tongue and throat! What a loss. A great product for dry mouth sufferers is gone. The new one is more than useless for people with dry mouth. I used this product multiple times a day and now I'm looking for a replacement product and haven't been able to find anything.

    I use Oral Balance Gel every night for dry mouth. First I tried putting it on my tongue, but just swallowed it, so now I put it between my teeth and lips. Occasionally, I have to reapply it once during the night, but it usually lasts all night. It has a mild minty flavor. I love this stuff! Now I don't worry about my teeth falling out from chronic dry mouth. My dentist noticed a difference after I started using it. Yea.

    Biotene Toothpaste is no longer recommended by me. I can't even use it anymore because they changed the taste. The "mint" flavor now is overpowering. I have bought Biotene for years because every other brand was offensively strong in "mint", and Biotene was mild. I do not have dry mouth. But now, the box says "NEW Improved pH Balance", the cute flip-up cap is gone, and the taste is unbearable. Either I got a bad batch, or some new executive has screwed up what used to be a very good product.

    Changed Formula Tastes Bad & Less Effective

    Some time ago, perhaps the beginning of 2014 or thereabouts, Biotene changed the formula of this product. I used to swear by it for solving dry mouth problems overnight where long-term efficacy was required. However, the "NEW! PH-balanced formula" has been watered down so that its effectiveness longevity has been severely compromised. In addition, the new formula has a very caustic or acidic edge; inevitably one is going to have to swallow some of this goo during use, and in my case (and many others’ -- read the reviews on Amazon and on Biotene's web site) the formulation provides a very unpleasant throat-burning experience for a good 20-minutes after it is applied, which certainly doesn't help one get to sleep! This new product seems about as far from "pH-balanced" as you can get. The only reason I buy this product anymore is because it's the only real player in the game for relief that lasts longer than a couple of hours, and because I can still blend it with the contents of some travel packs of the old gel that I still have and have found more of online. After that stash runs out, I don't know what I will do. I guess I'm hoping Biotene realizes they made a huge "Coca-Cola reformulation" error and restores the old formula -- or at least remedies the horrible caustic edge this formulation suffers from. Wal-Mart does have the best pricing I have been able to find to date (another problem with this product -- it's ridiculously expensive -- prior to the reformulation you could buy it for $3.99 / tube).

    Just using this product for the first time. I need to use it before I sleep. How or where do you apply it (I know applying on the tongue is useless).

    • A. Push one half inch up and lick it.

    • A. I am a man, FYI: I squeeze a bead of it along my pinky from the main knuckle to the fingertip. I then swish that bead around in my mouth, coating the inside of my mouth with it, including teeth. I believe I read instructions advising to do this somewhere along the line! Try to avoid swallowing it as the new "pH-balanced" formulation has a caustic edge that irritates the throat -- bad decision by Biotene!

    • A. Apply it to the tongue and "swish" it around your mouth. You don't necessarily have to use it before you sleep. You can use it anytime, all day long.

    • A. You're so right! Those directions are useless. The best technique I've found is to squeeze a small amount to tip of tongue and then deposit the gel between upper gum and inside of cheek with tip of tongue. ( like chewing tobacco??? )

    • A. I put it on my tongue and then use my tongue to coat around my mouth - even between my gums and my teeth. It's fairly easy and seems to work well.
