Recently, Dr. Receveur took intensive training in the latest dental implant surgical procedures in Charleston, S.C., at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine.
The training focused on the “AlloDerm” method of soft tissue grafting. It was conducted by Dr. John Russo, an author and international lecturer on bone grafting and dental implant surgery and a member of the faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina.
The training broadens Dr. Receveur’s ability to assist implant patients and patients with their natural teeth by using the latest proven technology and procedures.
The latest development in dental grafting, AlloDerm has been used successfully in other medical procedures, including hernia repair. AlloDerm is cadaver skin that has been reprocessed to remove the cells leaving only the connective tissue matrix. In the past, dentists had to harvest donor tissue from the palate to cover the root surface and the tissue grafting only prevented the gum recession from getting worse.
Using AlloDerm, Dr. Receveur can actually cover some of the exposed root surface and raise up the gum. When the root surface is exposed, it’s very sensitive to cold water.
Other important advantages of AlloDerm include:
- The patient does not suffer from a sore spot in the roof of the mouth for 30 days while it heals.
- It is a far less painful than the traditional procedure.
- It is esthetically more pleasing because the AlloDerm goes under the existing gum. This eliminates the “big bump of tissue graft” of the past.
Dr. Receveur has had a successful practice in New Albany, Indiana, for 30 years. He offers patients one-stop service for IV sedation, dental implants and complex surgery. Patients travel from as far away as Illinois, Ohio and even Florida to obtain treatment and care from Dr. Receveur.
“We take care of patients from beginning to end,” Dr. Receveur said. “We can take their CAT scan, place their implants and craft their new permanent teeth, all done in our office. Patients can have their implants done all in one appointment.”
“We are determined to make our patients’ lives easy and save them time,” he said.
