You’ve heard the saying, “monkey see, monkey do.” Actually, if you have kids, then you’ve probably seen the saying in action. You talk on the phone, and your toddler is right there wanting to talk, too. If your child sees you enjoying a good book during your free time, then he is more likely to want to read, also. Make healthy food choices, and your son or daughter will grow up wanting fruits and vegetables just like you. And if your children see you taking care of your teeth, then they will learn to do the same. Drs. Nicholas D’Amico and Matt Mauck are the Denver family dentists who know that parents need to be active participants in their children’s lifelong pursuit of healthy and happy smiles.

Have you ever noticed how one ailment can make the rest of your body feel less than its best? For example, when you have a headache, you may feel lethargic and other parts of your body may ache and then you become irritable and then you can’t get your work done and then… well, you get the picture. Your headache seems to spread throughout your body. The same holds true when your oral health is compromised. In particular, your periodontal health plays a critical role in your overall health. For this reason, the Denver general dentistry practice of D’Amico & Mauk spends time at each dental exam assessing the health of your periodontal, or gum, tissue.

November is upon us, and with it come the inevitable preparations for holiday gatherings and family traditions we all know and love. As 2014 quickly comes to a close, chances are that you have plenty on your mind aside from your dental insurance benefits. While it is true that visiting the dentist probably isn’t at the top of your list of things to do as you get ready for the holidays, you might be surprised as to why it should be. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Matt Mauck and Dr. Nicholas D’Amico would like to take a moment to talk about the importance of utilizing your dental benefits before the end of the year.
Putting Your Dental Benefits to Work for You
If you are anything like the majority of working American adults, it’s likely that a portion of your weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly pay goes toward a premium for a dental benefits policy. No one likes to pay for a service they’ll never get to use, and your dental benefits aren’t any different.
Did you know that thousands of men and women who pay into a dental benefits plan never actually utilize any of their benefits? Make sure that you’re getting the most for your hard-earned money this year and visit Drs. D’Amico and Mauck before December 31st. This is the date on which most dental insurance plans reset, rendering any unused benefits forfeited; they don’t roll over at the end of the year. When it comes to dental benefits, if you don’t use it, you lose it! We can help you get the care you need and deserve, making it easier to put every penny of the premiums you’ve paid to great use.

Dental fillings are among the most commonly performed dental procedures today, providing a structurally compromised tooth with the strength it needs to function even after it has been affected by decay. For decades, fillings were made of an amalgam of silver, mercury, and other metals, but today’s dental technology makes it possible for us to provide a much better alternative. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck offer patients a modern restorative option that blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth: composite tooth-colored fillings.
Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
The most obvious benefit associated with tooth-colored fillings is the aesthetic factor. Because the composite resin is precisely color-matched to the natural shade of your tooth enamel, the worry of a conspicuous dark metal filling is a thing of the past. This is particularly important when the filling is required on a tooth surface that is clearly visible when you smile. With tooth-colored fillings, you can feel free to smile openly. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had a filling placed because the results look completely natural.
Another prime benefit of tooth-colored fillings is their resistance to changes in temperature. While metal fillings have been shown to expand and contract due to extreme heat or cold, composites maintain their size and shape. This means that there is a significantly reduced risk of microfractures in the enamel over time. Furthermore, tooth-colored fillings allow for the preservation of more tooth enamel, meaning that we can preserve more of your natural smile than with silver amalgam restorations.
Achieve Your Healthiest, Most Beautiful Smile
Drs. D’Amico and Mauck look forward to helping your smile look and feel its best with our extensive array of restorative, preventive, and cosmetic dentistry services. Contact us today to schedule your appointment, and learn more about the advantages afforded by tooth-colored fillings.

As the summer break draws to a close, busy parents from across the country are gearing up for the coming school year. There are school supplies to buy, schedules to coordinate, and plenty else to do as your prepare your children for their first day back to school. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck want to make getting your little one’s smile ready for school as easy and convenient as possible, so we offer a comprehensive selection of family and children’s dentistry services all under one convenient roof.
Preventive Care for the Whole Family
When it comes to keeping your child’s smile healthy and looking its best, preventive dental care visits are crucial. It is during this type of appointment that we get the opportunity to assess the overall health of the teeth and gums, providing extra protection against tooth decay as needed. We may recommend treatments like fluoride supplements and dental sealants, both of which help fortify tooth enamel and protect teeth from cavities. Fluoride treatment strengthens enamel by correcting the demineralization that occurs with everyday eating and drinking, and sealants offer an extra layer of defense against bacteria and acid erosion.
A routine preventive dental visit also gives our doctors a chance to talk to your child about home hygiene habits in a way they can understand. Working as a team, parents and their child’s dentist can ensure years of healthy, beautiful smiles free of decay and other concerns. We’ll always take the time to makes sure your son or daughter is completely comfortable and that you’re fully apprised of all treatments we recommend.
