NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) September 25, 2014
Louisville All-on-4 dental implants expert Dr. Ronald Receveur is warning the public that it is not only foods that can damage their teeth, but drinks as well.
The New Albany cosmetic dentist said the effects of hard and sugary foods are well documented, and most people know to be cautious of what they consume.
“But damage done by liquids is often overlooked,” Dr. Receveur said. “It would be hard to find a dentist who didn’t say that liquids do as much damage as solids, thought the damage may be different.”
Here are four liquids that damage teeth:
1. Fruit juice. Most people know that sodas and even sports drinks can damage their teeth because of the sugar or acid within. But many people overlook the sugar in fruit juice because of the drink’s health benefits. Dr. Receveur recommends limiting your intake of all of these beverages and rinsing your mouth with water after drinking them.
2. Red wine, coffee and tea. Most people know that all of these drinks will stain your teeth. What they don’t know, Dr. Receveur said, is that stained teeth attract more bacteria, increasing your likelihood of cavities. Dr. Receveur suggests limiting the amount of red wine, tea and coffee you drink; rinsing your mouth with water after drinking any of the three; and using a straw or beverage container spout to circumvent your teeth.
3. Bottled water. This is not because of what is in the water but because of what isn’t – fluoride. Fluoridated water is considered one of the largest health improvement developments in human history, reducing natural tooth loss and decay to unprecedented levels. Those who drink mostly bottled water are missing out on the tooth-fortifying benefits of this mineral.
4. Over-the-counter cough medicines. While some may not taste like it, many OTC cough medicines are loaded with sugar. Other medications that can lead to dental problems are antihistamines (dry mouth) and birth-control pills (gum disease).
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., is an affordable dentist who 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, 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.
