New Albany dental expert Dr. Ronald Receveur is offering the 90 million chronic bad breath sufferers in this country eight tips on serious issues that may be causing their problem.

Dr. Receveur, a noted Louisville family cosmetic dentist, said food is the number one reason for halitosis, but people shouldn’t assume it is the reason for bad breath that never seems to go away.

“Most people realize their food can cause bad breath,” Dr. Receveur said. “But if you have bad breath not related to what you eat, you should see a medical professional.”

A dentist might find that a patient has gum disease, which is caused by bacteria build up that also causes bad breath. Poorly fitting dentures or an ill-fitting bridge may trap food particles. Dentists also can spot cavities that are causing bad breath.

Medical reasons for chronic bad breath can include:
1. Kidney disease.
2. Liver disease.
3. Post-nasal drip and chronic sinus infections.
4. Diabetes
5. Respiratory tract infections.
6. Chronic bronchitis or pneumonia.
7. Chronic dry mouth.
8. Acid reflux.

Dr. Receveur reminds people that mouthwash, mints and gum will not solve their bad breath and, in some cases, may make it worse.

Dr. Receveur, whose dental implant clinic is 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, One Day Smile Solution, 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.
