dry mouth – especially at night – can be a real problem. At the very least it’s very hard on teeth, causing them to crack, develop cavities, rot, gingivitis, on-n-on. So enter the never ending of finding the perfect solution to this problem.
There are mouth sprays, like Oasis or Biotin, that can be used. Personally, I like the refreshing taste of Oasis.
But, any of these have a limited time that they are active. Sometime after you fall asleep they stop working. I’ve recently had have two gold crowns because my back molars disintegrated. Those were NOT cheap – $3,000. I had to have gold because I’m a “grinder” at night. Porcelain would have disintegrated under that kind of pressure, too.
Some people use gum or a pebble with varying degrees of success. They wouldn’t work for me because I’d swallow them in no time at all.
Have you found anything that gives you overnight protection? If so, please share with the forum.
