Someone posted a while back that they use a spray bottle of water at night..just keep it at their bedside and spritz water when they are dry. I thought that was a great idea...you could almost stay in a prone position and spritz away before you get too awake.
It was just a thought along with the use of the Biotene products which, if I understand correctly, not only help with moisture but replace enzymes necessary for good oral health.
Glad you found this board...it will be such a help physically and mentally.
