NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur is recommending the public stop abusing their teeth in the four common ways if they want to keep their smile attractive and healthy.
Dr. Receveur, who has been offering New Albany cosmetic dental procedures for 33 years, said he can’t count the number of people who have damaged their teeth by misusing them.
“When patients comes to see us after damaging their teeth, they’re usually very upset at themselves,” Dr. Receveur said. “As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Dr. Receveur offers these three tips to stop putting your teeth at risk due to misuse:
1. Don’t use your teeth as tools. They are not a replacement for scissors, hammers, wrenches or pliers, Dr. Receveur said. You could end up breaking, cracking, chipping and wearing down your teeth.
2. Don’t forget to use a mouth guard. That goes for more than just football and lacrosse, Dr. Receveur said. Any sport in which participants can hit each other or the ground – including basketball, soccer, softball and baseball – should be played with a mouth guard.
3. Don’t grind your teeth. This is often out of your control, as many people unknowingly grind their teeth at night. But your dentist can tell if you have the signs of bruxism. Some people intentionally clench their teeth when lifting heavy objects or because they are bored. This can crack your teeth and wear away your enamel, Dr. Receveur said.
Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., is an affordable dentist who 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 is an expert in more advanced implant dentistry like All on Four 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.

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.
