The Difference between Plaque & Tartar from the Dentist Aurora Families Trust

November 13, 2015

Woman chatting on phone and brushing teeth in a towel needs to visit the dentist aurora trustsAlmost 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.

April 9, 2015

Periodontal Disease and Your Overall Health: What’s the Connection?

February 9, 2015

487692979As your trusted Aurora, COfamily dentists, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck want to be sure that you have all of the tools and information you need to keep your smile looking and feeling its best for life. That’s why we’d like to take the time today to talk about a little-known relationship between the health of your gums and the rest of your body; it’s called the oral systemic link, or the mouth-body connection.

Exploring the Systemic Link

When the bacteria that cause periodontal disease enter the bloodstream, they can spread to other areas of the body and cause potentially life-threatening illnesses and conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Cancer of the pancreas, kidney, and blood
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Respiratory infections, including pneumonia
  • Preterm birth and low birth-weight in babies whose mothers have gum disease
  • Dementia

Another interesting correlation was discovered recently in a Scandinavian study that examined the link between athletes and oral health. It turns out that athletes, particularly runners, tend to suffer from more instances of tooth decay and periodontal disease than non-athletes. This is due to a variety of factors, one of which is decreased levels of saliva. Saliva protects your teeth and gums from damaging bacteria, a primary factor in gum disease and cavities.

While your teeth and gums may not be the first thoughts you have when you gear up to hit the gym, it is important to remember that your workout does directly impact your oral health. Fortunately, our team can help you manage the health of your teeth and gums without imposing upon your exercise routine. We’re here to serve as your partners in total wellness, and we’ll always do everything we can to ensure your oral health as well as your overall well-being.

December 9, 2014

157247370As we prepare to welcome the New Year and all of the promise it brings, we invite you to take a moment to consider your smile. Are you happy with the appearance of your teeth and gums? Perhaps there are just a few minor aspects you’d like to change, or maybe you are more interested in a total smile transformation.

Are Porcelain Veneers the Right Choice for You?

Porcelain veneers are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry options available today, capable of correcting a wide range of aesthetic flaws in as few as two visits to our Aurora, CO office. These customized shells of dental porcelain fit perfectly over the surfaces of your existing teeth, creating a beautifully radiant and uniform smile that still looks and feels completely natural. There are many reasons that are patients choose porcelain veneers, including the following:

  • The desire to mask imperfections in one or more teeth, including chips and cracks
  • Feelings of insecurity regarding deep stains in enamel or gaps between teeth
  • The need for straighter teeth without the use of braces
  • Embarrassment about the size, shape, or orientation of teeth in relation to the amount of gum tissue present

Porcelain veneers are meticulously crafted to match the shape, size, and color of natural teeth. The material used even reflects light in the same way that tooth enamel does, so you never have to worry that your teeth look unnatural. What better way to welcome the New Year than with a gorgeous new smile? Porcelain veneers from Drs. D’Amico and Mauck can turn your vision of a flawless smile into a reality, just in time for the start of 2015.

Make the Most of Your Dental Insurance Benefits: There’s Still Time!

November 7, 2014

140450744November 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.

Reserve Your Appointment Today

Whether you are overdue for a six month checkup or you have important questions about your dental insurance benefits, our team is here to help in every way we can. In fact, our experienced financial coordinator will even file your claims for you so that you can rest assured that all paperwork is taken care of properly. Contact our office today to schedule your visit with Dr. D’Amico and Dr. Mauck. We genuinely look forward to helping you reveal your healthiest, most attractive smile just in time for the holidays. Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Aurora, CO warmly welcomes families from Aurora, Denver, Parker, Englewood, Centennial, Denver Tech Center, and more.
