In this post, we’ll review some of the many dental implant materials available to help you prepare to talk to your dentist about these advanced tooth replacement plans.

Why Two Dentists May Just be Better Than One

Drs. Mauck and RicciHave you heard the old adage, “Two heads are better than one?” This saying is used to promote the efficacy of teamwork in solving a number of challenges. You may never have thought of this in association with choosing a dentistry practice, but actually, patients who visit multi-dentist practices often receive better dental care than those who receive treatment from single dentist offices. At the Aurora dental office of D’Amico & Mauck, DDS, our two skilled dentists work as a team to support one another and ensure we always provide patients with the highest quality dental care.

The Many Benefits of Dental Implants: Restorative Dentistry in Aurora, CO

March 11, 2014

Shutterstock Dental ImplantMissing teeth affect your life in a number of ways, limiting your ability to speak, eat, and smile with comfort and confidence. Thanks to modern dental technology and advanced restorative options, patients with missing teeth can once again enjoy the numerous benefits of a full set of teeth with dental implants. Drs. D’Amico and Mauck in Aurora, CO offer comprehensive restorative dentistry services, including dental implant placement, to rebuild smiles that last a lifetime.

Restore Form and Function with Dental Implants

If the teeth you are missing are within the visible area known as the “smile zone,” it is likely that your primary concern is one of aesthetics. You may feel embarrassed of your teeth, hiding your smile behind your hands – or even avoiding smiling at all. This can have immensely detrimental effects on your overall sense of self-esteem, self-image, and self-confidence. Some people with multiple missing teeth will even shy away from the opportunity to engage in social functions with friends and coworkers.

Missing teeth also present a very real and serious problem that isn’t cosmetic at all, but function-related. When you can’t bite or chew a variety of different foods, your body may begin to suffer from vitamin deficiencies and even malnutrition. Without the sturdy root of a tooth to support it, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to deteriorate. This can lead to an entirely new host of problems, making tooth replacement a priority regardless of where in the mouth the problem is.

With dental implants, Drs. D’Amico and Mauck replace missing teeth to solve all of these problems at once, utilizing a time-tested restorative solution that allows you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably.

Dental Implants in Aurora, CO Can Help Rebuild Your Smile and Self-Confidence

October 26, 2013

dental_implantsLosing a tooth is often considered one of the most devastating dental injuries. After all, not only is your oral health compromised (an increased risk of periodontal disease and additional tooth loss are common consequences), but your self-image suffers a blow too, making it difficult to even leave your house, much less interact with people in professional and social settings for fear of embarrassment. While traditional replacement solutions, such as dentures and bridges, are often available, many patients find themselves unsatisfied by their bulky, unnatural nature. While Drs. D’Amico and Mauck can’t rewind the clock and bring your lost teeth back, they do offer the next best thing at their Aurora office: dental implants. With the help of dental implants, our team can give you back the beautiful, seamless smile you’ve been dreaming of.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium screws that fuse successfully with your jawbone tissue, effectively replicating the entire structure of your lost tooth. The process is simple – first, Dr. D’Amico and Dr. Mauck will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon; they will handle the placement of these screws. Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for you to heal, you’ll return to our Aurora office where we’ll place your brand-new, customized restorations atop them, completing the process.

How are dental implants better than other tooth replacement treatments?

Dental implants are so effective because they replace the root of your tooth, not just the crown. While dentures and bridges often look nice, the lack of tooth roots will cause your jawbone to deteriorate over time, resulting in a hunched appearance for your face. Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry solution that provides a solution to this problem! Additionally, dental implants are much more sturdy, lifelike, and long-lasting than their tooth replacement counterparts.

Don’t settle for an incomplete smile – instead, bolster your oral health with help from D’Amico and Mauck, DDS! Contact our office today to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from all over the greater Denver area, including Aurora, Centennial, Englewood, Denver Tech Center, and beyond.

Revitalize Your Smile with the Help of Dental Implants in Aurora, CO

May 3, 2013

When it comes to tooth loss, dentists can offer patients a variety of restorative options, including dentures, partials, or bridges. While these tools may meet the needs of some patients, others find themselves wishing for a more natural, long-lasting solution that can make their smile look and feel as good as it did before their dental problems. While our team at D’Amico and Mauck, DDS can’t turn back the clock, we can give you the next best solution: dental implants. A relatively new procedure in the world of restorative dentistry, dental implants can offer newfound stability, comfort, and beauty to the smiles of our patients in Aurora, CO and beyond!

What exactly are dental implants?

While other tooth replacement options rest on top of the gums and only restore the crown of the tooth, dental implants take your oral health a step further by replicating the entire structure, including the root. First, a trusted oral surgeon will place a titanium post into the empty socket. Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for the post to integrate with your jawbone, you’ll come in to see Drs. D’Amico and Mauck at our Aurora office, where we’ll attach a beautiful, custom-made crown to the implant, completing your brand-new look.

Dental implants have several benefits over more traditional restorative treatments, such as:

  • Bone deterioration often occurs in the jaw when teeth are lost. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that integrates with the jawbone, sustaining and even regenerating tissue.
  • They offer a way to rebuild your smile without having to sacrifice the health of your remaining teeth.
  • They’re much more sturdy and comfortable, not to mention seamless!

Don’t leave tooth loss untreated – call our dedicated team at D’Amico and Mauck, DDS today if you have any questions about dental implants, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment. Dr. D’Amico and Dr. Mauck will be happy to sit down with you and discuss the unique benefits of all our restorative dentistry options in order to find the one that fits your unique goals best. We welcome patients from all over the greatest Denver area, including Centennial, Eaglewood, and Parker.
