We understand that the dentist may not be at the top of your list of medical office visits when you are in the fight or your life, but a clean bill of oral health can work wonders in improving your overall health,” said Dr. Receveur.
NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Dr. Ronald Receveur, who owns and operates a New Albany contemporary dental implant center, is urging those diagnosed with cancer to closely monitor their oral health throughout their treatment and recovery.
In his latest blog published Nov. 14 to his website, http://www.NewAlbanyImplants.com, Dr. Receveur writes about the harmful effects cancer treatments can have on a person’s oral health. The dental implant clinic owner encourages patients diagnosed with cancer to visit his office before their treatment to correct any outstanding oral health issues.
About 1.4 million American are diagnosed with cancer every year, and many of those patients must resort to aggressive treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. Dr. Receveur, a leading New Albany and Louisville cosmetic dentist, writes that while these treatments are necessary to fight off the deadly disease, they can create dry mouth, oral lesions, tender gums, tooth decay or even serious oral infections. Children who undergo cancer treatments also may have tooth development issues.
If oral health issues are not corrected before the cancer treatment, the cancer-fighting medicine may exacerbate the dental problems, Dr. Receveur writes. For cancer patients undergoing treatment, an infection of any kind is harder to contain because the drugs weaken the immune system. Gum disease, which is caused by oral infections, also has been linked to illnesses like heart disease and diabetes.
“We understand that the dentist may not be at the top of your list of medical office visits when you are in the fight or your life, but a clean bill of oral health can work wonders in improving your overall health,” said Dr. Receveur, who provides revolutionary All On 4 dental implants.

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.
