Memorial Day weekend, which was last weekend, marks the beginning of the summer vacation season. New Albany teeth in a dayexpert Dr. Ronald Receveur urges adults needing dental implants to not let their dental work stop them from planning a vacation.
“With our One Day Smile Solution, you’ll wake up missing teeth and go to bed that night with a fully functioning smile,” Dr. Receveur said. “By the next day you’ll be ready to hit the road.”
Traditional dental implants can take 10-12 months of planning, procedures and recovery.
To get dental implants in one day, a patient first gets a Galileos 3D CAT Scan, the only one in Southern Indiana, at Dr. Receveur’s dental implant clinic in New Albany, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky.
The Sirona 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 bone.
Unlike CAT scans at hospitals and imaging centers, which require patients to lie down, patients sit in an open-air chair for about 20 seconds for the Galileos 3D CAT Scan. The Galileos also has 90 percent less radiation than a CAT scan at a hospital and costs about 50 percent less to use.
Using the three-dimensional image, Dr. Receveur can see the condition of a patient’s teeth, decide the best places for placing the dental implants and see any other issues before beginning the procedure. The image also allows a laboratory technician to design custom-made prosthetic teeth for each patient.
On the day of the procedure, Dr. Receveur will sedate the patient, and then place the implants and new teeth, immediately giving the patient a set of fully functioning and attractive teeth.
“You can use those teeth the second you walk out the door,” Dr. Receveur said.
That means patients are ready for their vacation immediately instead of needing days or weeks to recover, said Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky.
