New Albany, IN (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that nearly half of all Americans over age 30 have gum disease with that number ballooning to 70 percent for those 65 and older.
Louisville cosmetic family dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur believes that oral hygiene starts with young children, getting them in the habit of brushing, flossing and regularly visiting the dentist.
“People are going to come and see the dentist one way or the other,” the Louisville dentist said. “You can see the dentist to keep your teeth in good shape; you can see the dentist when your gums start to bleed and get red; or you can see the dentist when your teeth start to fall out.”
Dr. Receveur wants parents to put their children on the path for good oral health. To that end, he offers four tips to parents to help their children maintain healthy gums. They are:
1. Brush your children’s teeth after they are finished brushing. Children need to learn to brush their own teeth, but they don’t usually do a thorough enough job.
2. Stop children from eating or drinking anything other than water after they brush their teeth. Food particles and sugars left in their mouth overnight are breeding grounds for bacteria – the cause of gum disease.
3. Give kids foods like carrots, apples and celery to eat. The mouth produces more saliva when it eats these crunchy foods.
4. Do not skip your children’s dental appointments. The people best suited to help prevent gum disease are the dentist and dental hygienist.
Dr. Receveur, who practices 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 4 dental implants, All on Six dental implants, mini dental implants, dental implants in one day, dental implants in one hour, bone grafting 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.
