Biotene Oral Balance, Dry Mouth Moisturizing Liquid Changed My Life!
I’m pretty sure I’ve told you all (in past articles) about how my sister has always teased me because I’m a neurotic freak about my breath and I have probably given you all the tips and oral care treatments I’m aware of that have helped to freshen my breath. But I recently found the underlying cause of what I consider to have been why my breath felt unfresh to me. Whether my breath issue was real or imagined (as my sister would say) it was a very real concern for me. Problem was I found many products that felt like it treated it well…I wasn’t aware of the underlying cause so at the end of the day I was probably only masking it which made me feel as though I had treated it. I’ve always known there are physiological reasons for halitosis such as gastric issues and the obvious reasons such as eating onions and garlic but I never figured out what had caused mine.
I started realizing that I seem to be thirstier than everyone I’m around. I have such a dry mouth that I would literally have to pull over my car to buy a water even if I were late for something important. I always have a gallon of water near my bed because I wake up all night long needing drinks of water. I also noticed that I’ve always had difficulty in swallowing my pills and my thirst was usually just plain unquenchable. Excessive thirst can also be the underlying cause of many illnesses so if you can relate you would need to let your physician know about it. However, I had been tested for things such as diabetes and other issues that can cause excessive thirst and I had none of them. But it soon came to me that my dry mouth was probably contributing to my perceived or actual bad breath. On top of the fact that it’s just miserable to worry about my breath…having an extremely dry mouth is just down right uncomfortable.
I had heard about Biotene products as well as other mouth lubricating products in the past but had always thought they were prescriptions and just never thought to ask one of my doctors to get one written while I was at my appointments. I would only think about it that night or the next day that my dry mouth would return with a vengeance.
It turned out that Biotene has dry mouth products that are not prescription after all. My relief ended up being only a click away. I decided to search for dry mouth washes and lubricants one day when the southern California Santa Ana winds were blowing like crazy and the air was as dry as a bone. As you could imagine it was all I could do to swallow the limited amount of saliva I could even muster up.
That’s when I discovered Drugstore.com offered Biotene products and they were over the counter products, not written prescriptions as I had thought. I ordered Biotene Oral Balance, Dry Mouth Moisturizing Liquid and it truly changed my life! It contains five different moisturizers and 18 amino acids and milk protein. My mouth is now lubricated, comfortable, rarely ever dry, and my breath is as fresh as can be. And I can even swallow now with ease. I’m so blown away it has taken me virtually my whole adult life to figure out something so easy and for less than ten bucks no less!!
