At Lechner Dental Group in Delaware, we know that your oral health is imperative to your overall health. Conditions like dry mouth can be the result of underlying health issues. It is important to know what causes this condition so it can be treated appropriately.

What Causes Dry Mouth?
Dry mouth is caused by many different things including medications, anemia, nerve damage,  other health conditions like diabetes, medical treatments like chemotherapy, dehydration, smoking, consuming excess caffeine, and many more things.

  • Antidepressants
  • Diuretics
  • Pain Killers

From Our Patients:

Dr. Lechner has been my dentist for as long as he's been in Delaware. He was the first dentist to recognize that my having had rheumatic fever meant that I should take an antibiotoc prior to a dentist visit. From that time forward, I have not come down with any sort of illness following a dentis appointment. Thank you for all these wonderful years of healthy teeth and general good health!
