    Great Advice
    Thanks RayTodd for the information. I will talk to my dentist to see if we can do the same thing. Funny, I thought I was the only one biting my cheeks at night. I have a mouth guard but end up taking it out during the night while asleep. A thin one with gel would do the trick.

    RayTodd,

    Could you put a picture of what your dentist made? This way we can ask our dentist for the same thing.

    who has the driest mouth?
    RayTodd,

    Like you I’ve been working diligently to solve the dry mouth syndrome, I’ve contacted some of the greatest minds, but they said leave me alone. So, I guess it is hit or miss by fellow H&N bus riders.

    Lately, I’ve been trying the Xylimelts just as my head hits the hay and like you have been sleeping through the night only to be woken by the pee signal (you know all that water). The Xylimelts are a funky little mint you place between the check and gum and for the most part they stay fixed in place (I found one on the pillow this morning). They dissolve slowly over a few hours (I guess, I am asleep). Next thing I know it is morning. I am getting from 5 to 7 hours uninterrupted sleep for multiple nights in a row. For me they seem to help.

    It is probably hit or miss on whether they will work for anybody else, but you know how it is here amongst fellow thread readers, we are a tolerant, yet vocal group about what does and doesn’t work.

    Good luck to all and try to sleep with your mouth closed (to preserve moisture).

    Best,

    Matt

    Solution.
    12weeks out of treatment and I have no saliva at all. My saliva glands
    were not even in the line of fire (if you know what I mean). Anyway back to
    the issue of dry mouth. There is a company in Europe (Germany) I think
    named SALIWELL ( www.saliwell.com ) and they have invented a custom
    made mouth-guard with a electronic device built in it which it stimulates the
    saliva glands by electric impulses.
    I've read over their website and it looks pretty promising. It doesn't give
    prices so its proberbly expensive as they are custom made through your
    dentist ( who have never heard of it ).
    Please check out the sight and see what you think ( I have NO affiliation )
    I wish I did as it looks good, but I will give it more time to see if any
    of mine comes back.

    God bless
    Tonsil dad,

    have posted this in the past as soon about Salliwell
    As my dentist told me about it, its like a mini TENS machine for the mouth.Tried my tens machine with nearly dead batteries and no pads and it did work. Healthy batteries blew my fillings out LOL. Its not cheap so this is a stop gap.

    PS I finished Rad treatment 8 months ago which by the way does not have to be the actual area being blasted, its not the glands that die its the nerves that fire them
