New Albany, IN (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
However, some patients are confused about how to care for their new dentures, and whether that treatment differs from caring for traditional dentures.
Strickland Facelift Dentures, while more expensive than traditional dentures, maintain and support a wearer’s face and allow wearers to eat whatever they want.
“Facelift dentures fit closer to a patient’s gums, which improves the fit and function of their new smile,” Dr. Receveur said. “Facelift dentures also preserve the shape of the wearer’s face better than traditional dentures because they stimulate the jawbone to prevent bone loss.”
To help his and other patients better care for their dentures of all kinds, Dr. Receveur offers these four tips:
1. Be careful when handling your dentures. They are strong but not indestructible.
2. Brush and rinse your dentures every day. Use a soft-bristled brush designed for dentures with a mild soap. Brush all of the denture, being careful not to damage the plastic or bend any attachments.
3. Keep your dentures moist when not in your mouth. Denture cleanser is usually a safe option, but check with your dentist to be sure. Never use hot water, as it can warp your dentures.
4. Schedule a dental checkup every six months to a year.

Dr. Receveur, a New Albany native, has been the family dentist of choice for Southern Indiana and Louisville since 1981.
Dr. Receveur was born with a partial cleft palate that left him with a missing front tooth. As a child he “wore an awful removable partial.” As a teenager, Dr. Receveur received a permanent bridge, but his dentist destroyed one of his healthy, natural teeth in the process. These dental experiences helped drive him to find better dental solutions for his patients.
Dr. Receveur graduated from Indiana University Southeast with honors in chemistry, after which he earned his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Receveur has attended more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training and even gone to Portugal to study with the best dentists in the world. He has been awarded numerous advanced certifications in Implant, Sedation, Comprehensive, Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry so he may provide the most current dental techniques to his Louisville and New Albany dental patients.
