I really just need to know what to do for my extreme dry mouth. My teeth never feel clean and I can’t seem to get a job. Am I the only one going they this?

That is a topic that comes back around fairly often. Different people use different things.
Biotin. There is a chewable now developed by Stony Brook University dental college specifically to protect teeth for people like us.

I hope these threads give you some ideas or tips. Are you using any medications to lessen your dry mouth at the moment?
