Directions: Use whenever necessary to relieve dryness. When using the Biotene Oral Balance Liquid, squirt directly into the mouth as often as moisture is needed. When using the Biotene Oral Balance Gel, use a clean fingertip to apply a one-half inch ribbon of gel onto tongue, add an additional amount of gel onto affected areas. You can also massage into the gums. It is safe to swallow excess gel and liquid to assist in throat lubrication. Repeat several times daily as needed.
