“Unfortunately some people think that because they have prosthetic teeth supported by titanium implants that they don’t have to have good oral hygiene,” Dr. Receveur said. “Nothing could be farther from the truth.”

All on Four dental implants dentist Dr. Ron Receveur encourages all persons who have received dental implants to vigilant in the fight against gum disease in a recent blog post.

The post, which can be found at http://www.newalbanyimplants.com/dr-rons-blog/, reminds those with dental implants that if they don’t brush and floss diligently, they could lose their implants in the same way people lose their natural teeth: the bone will deteriorate and the implants will come loose.

“Unfortunately some people think that because they have prosthetic teeth supported by titanium implants that they don’t have to have good oral hygiene,” Dr. Receveur said. “Nothing could be farther from the truth.”

In his blog, Dr. Receveur offers those with dental implants three tips for preventing gum disease and, not coincidentally, they are the same three tips for those with their natural teeth:
1. Brush.
2. Floss.
3. Regularly visit the dentist for cleanings.

"Gum disease is caused by bacteria left in the mouth after eating and drinking. If enough bacteria stay in your mouth long enough, you will get gum disease,” the Louisville cosmetic family dentist said. “If you have gum disease long enough, you will lose bone density.”

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 has vast experience with 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. He has been restoring implants with prosthetics and complex dentistry for 25 years and surgically placing implants since 2008.

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.
