I have very bad dry mouth and decay problems. I have a cleaning scheduled for Tuesday and I'm actually afraid to hear how bad the decay is getting. I have followed all of the dentist recommendations of drinking a lot of water, chewing gum with xylitol, rinsing with biotine mouth wash, and brushing with a prescript
ion toothpaste (it's strong floride).
I know that I cannot be without the medicines so I'm not sure what to do. I cannot function without my medicine; I guess dentures will be in my future.
I just had a thought for the night time dryness. Maybe keep a vaporizer next to the bed. I also have a spray (biotine or oasis) that I spray in my mouth if I wake up at night. It's kind of thick and I'm not fond of the flavor but it does help a little. I also keep a bottle in my purse so if I'm out shopping and my mouth feels dry I spray a few times and it gets me through until I can find some water.
It's just another reason for us fibromites not to smile!
