There are healthy and tasty ways to enjoy the holiday without throwing your oral health out the window,” Dr. Ronald Receveur said.
NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) December 23, 2014
Dr. Ronald Receveur, a trusted New Albany and Louisville cosmetic family dentist, is challenging every Christmas cook extraordinaire to prepare tooth-friendly foods for the holiday feast this year.
“While this is the most wonderful time of the year, the treats and sweets we consume during the holiday season can take a mighty toll on our oral health,” said Dr. Receveur, founder of a leading New Albany dental implant clinic. “I encourage all of you in charge of the holiday feast this year to add foods that are tooth-friendly.”
The biggest culprit on the holiday menu is sugar, Dr. Receveur said. The average American consumes about 130 pounds of sugar every year, which increases the risk of cavities and oral health problems. Sugar is dangerous because when it is consumed, harmful acids and bacteria form in the mouth to make plaque, the substance that directly causes tooth decay.
Dr. Receveur says crunchy vegetables and fruits like celery and apples help fight off plaque. He also recommends cheeses or snacks high in calcium that induce saliva and flush out harmful bacteria inside the mouth.
“There are healthy and tasty ways to enjoy the holiday without throwing your oral health out the window,” the New Albany dentist said.
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers New Albany cosmetic dental treatment 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, 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.
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.
