New Albany, IN (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur’s second surgical suite is open.
The new surgical suite includes a state of the art, top of the line Midmark 641 Barrier-Free power procedures chair.
“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to expand our office,” Dr. Receveur said. “We want to serve as many patients as we can, and 2014 has already seen us make a lot of changes in that direction.”
So far in 2014, Dr. Receveur has expanded his office at 819 Mount Tabor Rd. in New Albany to include a new in-house dental lab and add a Galileos 3D CT Scan imaging so patients can begin and end their care in his office and receive predictable, long-term solutions.
Dr. Receveur added a new lab technician to work in the new 1,200-square-foot dental lab that allows Dr. Receveur to guarantee fit, cosmetics and comfort for dentures, including those that make patients look as though they’ve had a facelift. Dr. Receveur recently was certified to use Strickland Facelift Dentures.
Advantages of an on-site laboratory technician include:
● Control and creation of a patient’s new smile in one place under one doctor, often in one day.
● Patients have more choices in the color and shade of their new teeth with an on-site lab technician.
● Revisions can be made on site rather than having to return ordered components.
● The dentist and technician can craft a patient’s smile and make minor changes while the patient waits in the chair.
Dr. Receveur’s lab technician has "extensive background in Dentures, All on Four procedures (has fabricated more than 600 prosthetic cases of all on 4s), and lots of experience in implant-supported teeth that help people with replacing missing and failing teeth and solve their denture problems.”
With a Galileos 3D CAT Scan in his office, Dr. Receveur can explain a patient’s options right on the spot to solve his or her problems with missing or failing teeth, denture problems, and failing dentistry.
The Galileos 3D Dental Imaging System offers computerized axial tomography (CAT) scans of the jaw and mouth. With CAT scans, also called computed tomography (CT) scans, computers combine hundreds of X-ray images to generate high-resolution, three-dimensional views of facial bones, including teeth and jaw bones. The 3D images show bone structure, bone density, tissues and nerves.
"We can be more accurate in your implant placement and do a better job when we can see the anatomy better,” Dr. Receveur said. “I will not place an implant without a 3D film. There are some providers around the country placing implants without a 3D film. I can do a more accurate job, producing better results and a longer lifespan with the increased precision/accuracy."
Dr. Receveur’s dental implant clinic in New Albany, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., is one of only about 500 offices in the country, and the only practice in Southern Indiana, using a Galileos 3D CAT scanner to diagnose and treat patients.
Thanks to the Galileos 3D CT scanner, Dr. Receveur’s patients don’t have to leave his office for the precision and accuracy of CAT scan radiography.
Unlike at hospitals and imaging centers, which require patients to lie down, patients sit in an open-air chair for the Galileos 3D CAT Scan for about 20 seconds.
Dr. Receveur said there are additional benefits of the new machine:
1. Improved Diagnostic Ability: Three-dimensional images find 25 percent more tumors, abscessed teeth and abnormalities than traditional two-dimensional dental x-rays.
2. Reduced Radiation: The Galileos CAT Scan has 90 percent less radiation of a CAT scan at a hospital.
3. Decreased Cost: The Galileos CAT Scan costs about half of a medical CAT scan.
The Galileos will be a huge success with Louisville and New Albany all on 6 dental implants patients, all on 4 dental implants patients, teeth in a day patients and teeth in an hour patients, Dr. Receveur said.
Some of the main ways Galileos CT scans are used in dentistry are to:
● determine the quality of the jawbone where an implant will be placed.
● see virtual placement of implants using advanced software.
● observe where nerves are located.
● diagnose tumors and diseases in the early stages.
● measure the density of the jawbone where an implant will be placed.
● find the most effective placement for implants, including the angle of best fit.
● plan a complete surgical procedure in advance.
● accurately decide on the appropriate size and type of implants.
● view the exact orientation and position of each tooth.
● see impacted teeth.
