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 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.
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).
I could not make it through a day let alone a night without Oral Balance. I also put a bit on my upper denture before putting it in, seals better than Fix A Dent. I also use your toothpaste. Thank you for your products. Walmart does not always have oral balance on their shelf.
This is an excellent product that significantly helps resolve dry mouth conditions. I use it each evening. Great price at Walmart.
my husband is bed-bound with a disease that makes it impossible for him to close his mouth. Consequently, his mouth is extremely dry. Biotene gel helps but we also use lemon glycerine swabs.
So glad that the production problem has been resolved. This gel has been missed! Best product for dry mouth. Gel's flavor is far superior to the flavor of the liquid. Not that long lasting and not inexpensive, but the best.
My husband sleeps with a bi-pap and says Biotene Gel is a must for his dry mouth.
I use a CPAP machine and have had a problem with dry mouth for years. I was looking at product reviews and this got good ones so I decided to give it a try. Glad I did! It is easy to use. It has an ok taste - not good but not terrible. I don't use as much as they say to use because I ended up swallowing a lot of it. I start with a little bit on my tongue - coat the inside of my mouth and add more if I need it. Helps me get to sleep and stay asleep longer. If I wake during the night I am able to grab the tube and use a little more without turning the light on. Not a miracle cure but it helps quite a bit. It seems a little expensive but you really don't use much. I expect this tube will last me about one month.
This is a good product for dry mouth. I have tried everything out there. It was much better before they changed their formula, however. It now has a strong flavor that iritates inside of my mouth. Before, was a very bland mixture. Now it is way too strong.
I have been using this product for about a year and it is the only thing I have found that will really relieve dry mouth. I awaken in the middle of the night and I use it then and before I go to bed.
I use all of the Biotene products. I love them all.
Works great for dry mouth problems.
Due to the medications I must take I suffer from DRY MOUTH, which is a breeding ground for GERMS! Use this and keep your mouth moist-especially used before going to sleep when all of our mouths are the dry.
Biotene gel really helps my dry mouth which is the result of radiation I needed for a malignant tumor. I always keep a tube in my purse and next to my bed.
Never wake up with a dry mouth again. A little gel in you mouth at bed time solves dry mouth.
We have been using this product for several years. We have tried other products which are supposed to be similar but they do not compare.
I've been using Biotene Oral Balance now for several years and have been very satisfied. It is one of the best mouth moisturizing gels out there.
I very seldom write reviews , this works, taste is ok, must be popular cause the stores in my areas cannot keep it in stock, thanks for fast shipping , thanks
