    Dental
    issues. Ever since I finished my chemo treatments in 2006, I have had several dental issues consisting of root canals, crowns, cavatives and dry mouth.

    My dentist put me on a Biotene mouthrinse and toothpaste. I use the mouthrinse twice daily and the toothpaste in the morning. Due to my cavaties, I use a different "dental" toothpaste in the evening as well as taking a flouride pill.

    Biotene is made for dry mouth. Dry mouth gives bacteria a place to grow.
