NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
Dr. Ronald Receveur, a leader in providing residents of New Albany and Louisville All on 4 dental implants, is now using a conus abutment that has been proven to better stabilize prosthetics used on patients with missing or failing teeth.
The newly tested and approved conical abutment is made from non-precious metals, typically titanium, and is placed between the implant and the crown to provide support for the prosthetic.
Abutment technology has advanced quickly in recent years, and dentists are now using a conical-shaped abutment instead of a conventional plug-in abutment because the conical abutment better stabilizes the implant, reduces the risk of bacteria exposure and reduces bone deterioration. Implants with conical connections also have been shown to provide bone development up to the abutment.
Dr. Receveur said the conical abutment will revolutionize the way dentists place implants. He recently began using the abutments at his comprehensive dental practice and has had tremendous results.
“This is huge for us,” the New Albany dentist said. “These cutting-edge abutments for implants allow us to continue improving stability and retention for prosthetics made on top of implants.”
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers Louisville affordable cosmetic dentistry services and general family dentistry such as teeth cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening and veneers.
Dr. Receveur also has vast experience with 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. 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. A New Albany native, he 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.
Dr. Receveur’s associate, Dr. Bradley Frederick, graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), orthodontics and dental implants at the Midwest Implant Institute, and has completed dental sedation training.
Dr. Frederick was a dental lab technician before receiving his DMD. That gives him unique knowledge in cosmetic dentistry elements like crowns, bridges, veneers and smile design.
Dr. Frederick is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of the men’s soccer team and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He graduated high school from St. Xavier in Louisville.
