Tips to Quench Your Thirst! Dry Mouth - Part 3 

Tuesday, July 7, 2015
In parts one and two of the blog series on Dry Mouth, also referred to as xerostomia, we discussed its definition, the symptoms, and some of the causes.
 
At Lechner Dental Group we want to help inform the residents of Delaware about their oral health. So, let’s take a look at some tips on treatments to help alleviate the symptoms and get some relief!

Tips to increase saliva production:
  • Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day
  • Maintain good habits like brushing and flossing twice perday
  • Replace your gum with sugarless chewing gum that contains xylitol
  • Employ a humidifier while sleeping
  • Keep your lips moist
  • Maintain regular dental appointments 
Unfortunately, there are times where your dry mouth cannot be solved. If this is the case Dr. Lechner may recommend some medications that can help your dry mouth and keep your mouth healthy.

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!
