I finally looked into OCF and read about Biotene.  It sounds like the "New and Improved" formula doesn't have what we need in it.  I can't handle any other mint toothpaste, burns tongue and mouth and lips.  What are you using for toothpaste that doesn't burn and has the enzymes that we need in it?

I've noticed the Biotene seems to sting now and I don't remember it did before.   It's definitely more foamy than before.   I just left a comment on the Biotene web site for their customer service team.    Kind of like going from old coke to "new" coke ( of course I haven't had a coke in about 10 months).   

 

If anyone has found any other toothpaste that does the trick it would be great to know.

Is good as for the fluoride... Not sure what you are presently doing as for that... 

I'm not sure Prevident is something that you can handle or not though...

Since radiation I have summer teeth.............summer here and summer there. But when I brush 2 to 3 times a day, like John I use Prevident 5000. It tatses so sugary sweet I actually feel a little naughty using it. I didn't know Biotene made a toothpaste. I used something else for while but I forget the brand name.

I have a script for SF 5000 from my dentist. Before that, I used M&I polishing paste because I could not tolerate toothpaste.

For a long time, I used prescription SF 5000 plus and later introduced Biotene.  Now and for the past few years and because of sensitivity, I swapped to Sensodyne with fluoride.  Every night before going to bed, I rinse with ACT.

I use the Sensodyne at night and in the morning mixed with Oregadent. Then follow up with the Colgate 5000 plus. For someone who can’t open his mouth it is all I can do to keep my teeth in as good a health as possible.

We're still trying to figure that out too. Been using the prescription strength Denta 5000 and because of the canker sore issue, we've stopped it. Still looking for a substitute. Going to the dentist to see about trays and get a suggestion on toothpaste.

Good luck.

This is what my dentist offers. Not sure if it will be gentle on the mouth as I started using it after my mouth sores resolved.

Hey KT, I've been using Biotene with PBF, my personal favorite variety, for the longest time, and I am very happy with it.  Although it says "toothpaste," it is actually a gel, which I prefer, because it is not foamy.  I have not experienced stinging or burning from it.
