Where do I get the Biotene toothpaste with active ingredient as sodium and not fluoride used for dry mouth?

Hi. My name is Cheryl and I am in a predicament to say the least. I suffer from SEVERE dry mouth and I used to use Biotene's Dry mouth gentle mint toothpaste. However, Biotene was bought by a company that changed the formulation of this toothpaste gel (active ingredient: Sodium Monofluorophosphate) and added too much fluoride and MINT such that I cannot use it. Do you know where I could purchase the OLD biotene toothpaste gel with the above active ingredient??? Help!

I have read your concern.

To get the Biotene toothpaste with active ingredient as sodium which has been changed into its flouride content will be available ,even if it is outdated.

I would suggest you to use the toothpaste with flouride content for better result.

Meanwhile,maintain oral hygiene well.

You can also consult with your dentist and get an opinion regarding this.

Take care.
