Most people think they know the dangers of smoking because we hear warnings all the time,” Dr. Receveur said. “Now you can add losing or damaging your teeth to potential problems you know smoking can cause.

New Albany dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur has noticed two television commercials that he hopes smokers are paying close attention to.

The first is from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign and can be found at youtube.com/watch?v=y70V5HGhpHs. It shows a 49-year-old man named Brett remove two prostheses from his mouth, exposing his missing front teeth on both the front and bottom rows.

“Your smile says a lot about you,” Brett says. “What does this say?” as he removes the prostheses.

The second is from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Real Cost Commercial campaign, in which a convenience store clerk tells a patron that he doesn’t have enough money to pay for his menthol cigarettes. The patron takes out a pair of pliers, pulls out a tooth, adds it to the cash, and takes the cigarettes.

“What’s a pack of menthol’s cost?” the narrator asks. “Your teeth.”

The commercial can be seen at youtube.com/watch?v=15Q5qGgfz_Q.

According to the CDC, smoking causes half of all cases of adult periodontitis, which is a gum infection that can ultimately lead to tooth loss.

“Most people think they know the dangers of smoking because we hear warnings all the time,” Dr. Receveur said. “Now you can add losing or damaging your teeth to potential problems you know smoking can cause.”

Dr. Receveur urges all smokers to quit and see him at his dental implant clinic to repair any damage already done to their teeth.

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.
