When people engage in self-destructive behavior, generally they are not concerned about the effects on their teeth – but they should be, according to New Albany cosmetic dental treatment authority Dr. Ronald Receveur.

Dr. Receveur wants to alert the public to the ways four different self-destructive behaviors can affect their teeth:

1. Bulimia. Even when no one else can tell that a person is bulimic, his or her dentist can. That’s because stomach acids brought forth by regular vomiting leave tell-tale damage to teeth.
2. Abuse methamphetamine. Meth addicts traditionally take poor care of themselves, eat sugary foods and drinks and have visible cavities. The damage is often irreversible and solved only through cosmetic dental work or prostheses.
3. Smoke. Smoking tobacco not only stains teeth, but it increases the likelihood of diseases gums and jaw bones.
4. Tongue piercing. Tongue piercing, unlike the others, is not inherently self-destructive. However, a person with a stud or ring in his or her tongue is regularly banging it against his or her teeth. This can leave the teeth cracked, chipped and broken over time.

“Even discount dental implants cost far more than preventing these problems,” Dr. Receveur said.

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 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.
