New Albany, IN (PRWEB) November 27, 2014
Dr. Ronald Receveur, who has a leading Southern Indiana dental implant clinic, has a few oral health tips before patients dig into the annual Thanksgiving feast.
Dr. Receveur, who offers Louisville and New Albany affordable cosmetic dentistry, and his staff understand that Thanksgiving means mountains of foods high in starch and sugar. While the staff wishes everyone a happy and safe holiday, the dental practice has some helpful tips for how patients can enjoy a feast that is also healthy on their teeth:
- Beware of sticky and sugary foods. Sticky and sugary foods take much longer to break down inside the mouth. This exposes the mouth to harmful bacteria that put the teeth at a higher risk of tooth decay.
- Avoid snacking. Thanksgiving is a snacking holiday, but try to keep grazing to a minimum. Snacking exposes teeth to harmful acids for long periods of time, which opens the door to tooth decay.
- Try different food groups. During Thanksgiving, it’s tempting to load plates with foods high in carbohydrates. Much like sugar, foods high in starch and carbohydrates can create harmful bacteria that leads to cavities. Vegetables and foods high in protein can help combat the acids that create harmful bacteria in the mouth.
- Drink water or rinse with water after the meal. Sugary drinks damage the teeth and create cavities. Rinsing with water can remove food debris from the mouth, and it also helps the oral cavity maintain healthy saliva levels, which also fight tooth decay.
- Brush after eating. In addition to your regular brushing and flossing routine, brush after meals to remove food debris and harmful acids inside the mouth.
“Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be destructive on your teeth,” said Dr. Receveur, who provides low cost dental implants. “By following these tips, you can still enjoy a holiday feast without forfeiting your oral health.”
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 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 at his dental implant clinic.
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.
Dr. Receveur’s associate, Dr. 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.
