I haven't been on here for a while, seems like I got busy during the holiday season. But I've got a problem I hope one of you can solve. My mouth burns when I'm brushing my teeth. I've used sensitive, Benetene, crest, colgate and children's toothpaste. By the time I finish brushing my teeth my gums and tongue is on fire and it takes glasses of water to put it out.

My didn't exactly burn, but weren't feeling so good in the mouth especially the gums, so I use the Sensodyne brand, really helps. Hope that helps. Others I'm sure will have better alternatives.

My gums burn a bit, but mostly they are sore. I use a really soft toothbrush. I also try to brush several times a day for just a quick minute. Instead of brushing for several minutes like I used to do. Good luck Debbie.

Isn't it weird that fighting a life threatening disease sometimes comes down to trying to figure out how to brush your teeth?

Take Care,

My dentist prescribed me a low hydrogen peroxide tooth paste. It does not foam as much and it has a higher fluoride content. My dentist also recommended ACT mouth wash. She said it has less alcohol and will not dry out one's mouth as much. (Since most of the anti-nausea drugs dry out one's mucus membranes already.)

Best Always, mike
