For the nearly 40 million Americans who wear dentures, New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur wants you to know you do not have to live in pain or embarrassment from having loose-fitting dentures. However, not everyone is a good candidate for implants, and Dr. Receveur offers three tips to know if you are poor candidate for dental implants.

New Albany, IN (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

Nearly 40 million Americans wear dentures, including 57 percent of those aged 65 to 74 years old. For this group, New Albany cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Receveur wants you to know you do not have to live in pain or embarrassment from having loose-fitting dentures.

There is little worse than not being able to eat the foods you love or having painful gums from ill-fitting dentures, Dr. Receveur said. If there is anything worse, its being ashamed to smile or terrified that your dentures might pop out at the wrong time.

For most such patients, Dr. Receveur would recommend dental implants, which screw into your jaw bone to anchor a prosthetic tooth on top. With the revolutionary All on Four dental implants, patients missing all their upper and/or lower teeth can get a full set of teeth using only four implants in each jaw rather than an individual implant per tooth.

However, not everyone is a good candidate for implants, Dr. Receveur said. All the technological advances we have made has decreased that number, though.

Dr. Receveur offers these three tips to know if you are poor candidate for dental implants:

1) Chronic health conditions that are not under control. Diabetes and heart disease are two of the most common ones. Usually, if you are healthy enough for a routine dental procedure, you are healthy enough for a dental implant. But someone whose health problem is out of control is not healthy enough for any kind of oral surgery. You must get your diabetes, heart disease or other chronic health condition under control before completing undergoing the procedure.

2) The patient has poor oral hygiene. This causes two problems: an unhealthy mouth and an unproven track record of taking care of their teeth. Patients with poor oral hygiene usually have gum or bone infections, which must be resolved before a dentist can place implants. In addition, dental implants will not last a lifetime if they are not cared for properly.

3) The patient is too young. A patients jaw bone must be completely developed before receiving an implant. If a dentist places an implant too soon, it could disturb the natural movement of the patients smile as he or she grows into an adult.

These are guidelines and not rules, Dr. Receveur said. We consider each patient individually to decide if dental implants are right for them.

Dr. Receveur offers a lifetime warranty on dental implants and a five-year warranty on all cosmetic and prosthetic work.

Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., 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, dental implants in one day, dental implants in one hour, Strickland facelift dentures, bone grafting and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry.

Dr. Receveur, a New Albany, Ind., 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.
