General Questions

Why should I use fluoride?
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay in a few ways.  First, it promotes tooth remineralization, which can reverse the early stages of tooth decay.  Second, it helps teeth become more resistant to tooth decay, giving them natural protection from it by strengthening them.  Finally, it inhibits oral bacteria’s ability to create tooth-attacking acids by disrupting bacteria’s ability to metabolize sugars, which is the process that leads to the attack of tooth enamel.

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!
