Almost every oral health issue starts with plaque or tartar buildup. More than 50% of US adults experience some level of gum disease which is the number one cause of tooth loss, and periodontal disease occurs due to soft tissue irritation caused by plaque and tartar build up. Tooth decay causes cavities, root canal infection, and tooth loss, and begins when acidic plaque and tartar breakdown tooth enamel. Regular preventive dental care from D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora and thorough at-home oral hygiene are the first lines of defense against these destructive bacteria.

When it comes to your kids, you want to make sure that they get the best in everything – from proper nutrition at home to a future with a good education and career. Giving your children the best possible start in the oral healthcare department should be a top priority, too, building the foundation for a happy, healthy smile for decades to come. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck provide our youngest patients with all of the essential general dental care they need to keep on smiling.
Prevention is the Key
Your little one’s teeth go through a lot during the first few years of their development. In order to make sure that everything is progressing as it should from the very start, we recommend having your kids visit the dentist by the age of three. These initial checkups allow Dr. D’Amico and Dr. Mauck to assess the growth and health of the primary teeth.
We’ll talk with you about how your child’s teeth and gums should be cleaned at home, as well as look for any signs of decay. We can recommend fluoride treatments to strengthen young teeth and sealants to protect them. For older children who are involved in sports, we can provide customized athletic mouth guards to prevent oral injury while they play. As a parent, you can rest assured in the knowledge that you’ll be apprised of every step of your child’s oral healthcare process.
At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS, we believe that visiting the dentist should be a fun, positive experience, especially for our youngest patients. We’ll do everything we can to make sure your children feel welcome, calm and comfortable so that every visit to the dentist in the future will be a pleasant one.
Protect Their Pearly Whites

If you play a contact sport like football, hockey, or boxing, you know how important an athletic mouthguard is for protecting your teeth and tongue. But did you know that an athletic mouthguard can also offer extra protection from concussions?
A custom-made athletic mouthguard will actually absorb some of the force incurred from falls, collisions, or other forms of physical activity during play, helping athletes avoid a serious concussion. You might think of them as acting like shock absorbers that protect the jaw and the base of the skull from becoming violently jarred.
That makes wearing an athletic mouthguard absolutely essential for some sports, like the ones mentioned above. But it’s not just football players and hockey players who can benefit. The American Dental Association and the Academy of Sports Dentistry recommends that athletes from just about any sport wear an athletic mouthguard, including athletes involved in:
- Track and field
- Martial arts
- Softball, and more
To find out more about how athletic mouthguards can offer you extra protection from concussions and other injuries, call the dental office of D’Amico and Mauck today. During a simple visit with us at our Aurora office, we’d be happy to explain the advantages and how we can help you.
We look forward to hearing from you!
