Dry Mouth, or Xerostomia, is a common problem that affects about 25% of all adults. But exactly what is Dry Mouth? Dry Mouth occurs when saliva production begins to slow down. Dry Mouth itself is not a condition but rather a side effect of several different medical and biological circumstances. Biotène is committed to formulating products that either help to relieve the discomforts that these side effects lead to or to providing products that work gently where others further aggravate these symptoms.

The symptoms of Dry Mouth vary from individual to individual. However, if you think that you may be suffering from signs of Xerostomia, some common Dry Mouth symptoms are: blisters and mouth ulcers, difficulty eating dry foods, cracking at the corners of the mouth, oral redness, thirst at night and difficulty speaking**.
