New Albany, IN (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
Few people have been spared seeing the effects of cancer and cancer treatment on themselves or someone they love. Radiation and chemotherapy can take a devastating toll on the body, and Louisville dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur doesn’t want anyone to overlook the effects it has on their or their loved one’s mouth.
“Oral health is obviously not the first thing on someone’s mind when they hear they have cancer, unless it is some form of mouth cancer,” Dr. Receveur. “But you can do some things to keep your mouth healthy while you get rid of the cancer.”
Here are Dr. Receveur’s 7 tips for caring for your teeth while fighting cancer:
1. Visit your dentist about a month before starting chemotherapy to develop a plan.
2. Keep your mouth moist with sugar-free gum, ice and saliva supplements.
3. Brush with warm water after every meal.
4. Floss every day.
5. Use a solution of 1/4 tsp of both salt and baking soda in a quart of water to rinse your mouth every day. Rinse with warm water.
6. If your mouth hurts, eat soft, moist foods.
7. Avoid crunchy, sharp, acidic, spicy and sugary foods.
“We have the utmost compassion for those battling cancer,” Dr. Receveur said. “We want to make sure your smile is still beautiful after you have beaten the disease.”
Dr. Receveur, a New Albany dentist who practices across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers Louisville cosmetic dentistry services and general dentistry such as teeth cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening and veneers.

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.
