I take Vimpat which causes me to have dry mouth issues causing dental problems. Any ideas how to combat a dry mouth? I only know a few.

You can try gum or mints called Pur, a mouth rinse called Biotene, sucking on ice chips, sipping small amounts of warm water or cool water, and brush your teeth after each meal or snack. Your dentist and hygienist can give you other suggestions.

a mouth rinse called Biotene, .
I also have a dry mouth, due to meds and Diabetes. My dentist suggested I use Biotene toothpaste as well as the rinse. It does help. I also use sugar free "Werther's" butterscotch hard candies.

I don't brush after every meal/snack. That would cause me more problems.
