The Biotene range provides an extensive line of products that are specially designed for consumers with dry mouth symptoms. The Biotène® system/range allows consumers to choose the right products or group of products to fit their lifestyle preferences and dry mouth symptom severity. As the severity of dry mouth symptoms can vary widely among individuals, a single recommended regimen does not suit everybody. Read the product labels, visit our website or speak to a HCP to assist you to make your choice about which products in the range to use.
The primary mode of action across this range of oral products is physical (not pharmacological) by helping to retain moisture to help keep the oral tissues feeling moist, and by creating a physical coating film to lubricate the oral mucosa, thus helping to relieve dry mouth symptoms.
The Biotène® moisturizing products (Oral Rinse, Gel and Spray) contain humectants (substances that help to retain water in the underlying tissues) and lubricants (substances that create a physical coating) to help moisturize and lubricate your mouth. Water does "moisturize", but it is brief due to lack of humectants. However, we certainly do not discourage you from sipping water to help relieve your Dry Mouth symptoms.
The Biotene® Oral Dry Mouth Rinse, Gel, and Spray are regulated as medical devices and provide dry mouth symptom relief. The Biotene® Oral Moisturizing Rinse and Toothpastes provide oral hygiene benefits only and are not indicated to provide dry mouth symptom relief. The toothpaste is specially formulated to not irritate.
