NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ron Receveur was horrified to hear about the New York City Police rookie who was punched in the face last month during a failed drug arrest and had several of her teeth broken. If the situation were to happen in Southern Indiana, Dr. Receveur said he would offer the officer four tips on deciding what to do about the broken teeth.
They are the same tips he offers when his patients or anyone in the public calls him asking for emergency dentistry for broken teeth. They are:
1. For a small break, Dr. Receveur might be able to use a filling to repair it.
2. For a break in the raised portion at the top of a tooth, called the cusp, Dr. Receveur may have to use a crown or onlay to cover the tooth.
3. For a break that goes all the way into the innermost part of the tooth, called the pulp, Dr. Receveur may be able to save the tooth with a root canal as long as the break doesn’t go below the gumline.
4. For breaks below the gum line, no matter whether they start below the gumline and go up or start at the top and go down, Dr. Receveur would have to extract the tooth.
“Dental implant costs are much more reasonable than they once were,” Dr. Receveur said, “so many people elect to replace their broken tooth with a permanent prosthetic.”
Dr. Receveur, who practices in a dental implant clinic in New Albany, Ind., 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 also is an expert in more advanced implant dentistry like All on Four dental implants, All on Six dental implants, mini dental implants, dental implants in one day, dental implants in one hour, and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry.
Dr. Receveur offers a five-year warranty on all cosmetic and prosthetic work.
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.
