Atridox helps reduce the depth of gum pockets, improves gum reattachment to teeth and reduces bleeding,” Dr. Receveur said. “It’s not painful and may delay or even eliminate the need for surgery.
New Albany, IN (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur has added a new weapon to his arsenal for fighting periodontal disease.
Traditionally, there have been three ways to fight gum disease:
- gum surgery
- pulling teeth
- deep cleaning (also called scaling and root planing)
The first two are pretty easy to understand. With deep cleaning, a dentist scrapes the tooth roots where gums have detached from the teeth. This is done under local anesthesia.
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., has added a fourth option: Atridox antibiotic. Atridox is a gel that coats gums with the antibiotic doxycycline. The gel it hardens after it is applied, then dissolves over seven days.
“Atridox helps reduce the depth of gum pockets, improves gum reattachment to teeth and reduces bleeding,” Dr. Receveur said. “It’s not painful and may delay or even eliminate the need for surgery.”
Dr. Receveur far exceeds his state-required continuing education, accruing more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training. He has received advanced certifications in Comprehensive, Restorative, Implant, Sedation and Aesthetic Dentistry so he can give the most current dentistry to his Louisville and New Albany dental patients.
Dr. Receveur, one of Louisville’s best cosmetic dentists, can provide smile dental care such as teeth cleanings, fillings, extractions, crowns and root canals, as well as more advanced implant and cosmetic dentistry like teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants in one day, dental implants in one hour, All on Six and All on Four dental implants, bone grafting, and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry.
Dr. Receveur graduated with honors in chemistry from Indiana University Southeast and earned his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry. Dr. Receveur, a native of New Albany, has offered cutting-edge dentistry to Southern Indiana and Greater Louisville residents since 1981.
