I have been diagnosed with this and I'm in pain most days and would like to have discussions.

@cblue this site from Mayo Clinic says pretty much the same thing; that cevimeline stimulates your own glands to produce saliva versus artificial saliva which many people have to use.
https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/cevimeline-oral-route/side-effects/drg-20062661?p=1. Your dentist says the saliva produced is not adequate to protect your teeth. Have you asked him what he would suggest you use in addition to cevimeline?

Ps the oral pathologist confirmed it is saliva from my own glands. I’m just having trouble getting it to work consistently and when it does, it makes me nauseous often.
