What about Biotene?

Dear Dr. Ellie:

I think the gum you make is great and your system sounds promising. What is your opinion on the Biotene line of products? My mouth gets excessively dry due to medication. I’ve been thinking of switching to their toothpastes.

At night I like to use their Oral Balance. These are the ingredients: Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Xylitol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Beta D Glucose, Lactoperoxidase, Lysozyme, Lactoferrin, Glucose Oxidase, Potassium Thiocyanate, Aloe Vera. I usually use ACT mouthrinse at night, wait 30 minutes, and then use the Oral Balance before I got to sleep. Will this disrupt your system?


Hi A,
The system of rinses and xylitol that I recommend is like a recipe for a special cake! If you change the ingredients in my recipe the results will not be what you should experience. Biotene is well known and has been advertised for “dry mouth” for many years. However, I have been contacted by three hospitals who wanted to know about my system. Most of their patients use Biotene but ONLY patients using my system had avoided dental damage during the “dry mouth” of radiation oncology. People on my system usually impress their dentist in four to six months with noticeable oral health improvements.
My system is made for everyone especially those with acidic or dry mouth (these are reasons that make teeth weak, brittle, stained and sensitive). 
If you try my system for a week or two then you could compare how your teeth feel with how they feel using the products now. I would not recommend mixing the products up it won’t work. 
Trust Crest Regular paste on a very clean tooth brush. Start brushing after you have first rinsed with Closys. If you find Listerine too strong, dilute it to taste in some water. 
As your teeth get stronger and healthier you will be able to tolerate it better. Rinse the toothpaste off with Listerine, and then rinse the Listerine off your teeth with ACT (let the ACT “soak” into your teeth).
In place of your idea to rinse ACT off your teeth with another rinse I would recommend you snack on a Zellie mint before bed or during the night if your mouth is dry. The combination of ACT and Zellies work in harmony and you will love the outcome! Let me know how this works for you. It would be great to gather all the “dry mouth” user testimonials because this is an awful condition and I think my system can really help everyone.

Best Wishes and Good luck!
