Caring for Your Dentures: Helpful Tips from D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO

June 12, 2014

shutterstock_179301155You want your dentures to last, fit well, and look great; the only way to accomplish this is to ensure that they are cared for properly and regularly. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck offer our patients helpful information regarding all aspects of restorative dentistry, including how to properly care for their dentures, partials, and other dental prosthetics. Here are some simple tips that can help you keep your dentures in optimal shape for years to come.

Easy-to-Follow Denture Care Tips

  • Always handle with care. Your dentures are crafted specifically for you using high-quality dental materials, but they can still be damaged. When you remove your dentures, do so over a folded towel or a sink full of water. This will help prevent breakage if they should be accidentally dropped.
  • Clean daily and after meals. Rinsing your dentures after eating will help prevent the buildup of plaque and odor-causing bacteria. Every night, remove your dentures and brush them with a special brush and cleansing agent designed for cleaning dentures; regular toothbrushes and toothpastes can be too abrasive and actually cause unnecessary damage.
  • Store dentures properly. The way you store your dentures when you are not wearing them is extremely important. Dentures must be kept moist so that they maintain their shape, so keep them in a container of specialized soaking solution or water. Never place your dentures in hot water, as they may warp and will no longer fit properly.

Give Your Smile New Life with Restorative Dentistry in Aurora, CO

January 15, 2013

We’re well into the New Year now, and that means you must have some resolutions you want to see accomplished. Maybe you want to finally complete that creative project, or you’d like to spend more time outside. While you’re at it, you might want to consider calling D’Amico & Mauck, DDS about any restorative dentistry procedures you should undergo. Needing help with your teeth is nothing to feel embarrassed about – whether wear and tear happens because of age, an accident, or even an occasional sweet treat, you deserve to have a beautiful smile you can share with the world. That’s why here in our Aurora, CO office, Dr. D’Amico and Dr. Mauck are committed to not only increasing the strength and function of your teeth, but also helping you to prevent further damage. Here are just a few of the restorative dentistry services we can offer you:

Dental Implants

One of the newest methods in restorative dentistry for replacing lost teeth, dental implants are a permanent way to have a strong, long-lasting smile. Titanium screws are first placed in your jaw by an oral surgeon. Then, Dr. Amico or Dr. Mauck will create custom-made, tooth-like crowns for you that will sit on top of the screws, which will hold them firmly in place. Dental implants have an advantage that few procedures do: they provide you with new tooth roots, meaning your jaw stays healthy and functional through the years.

Porcelain Crowns

With our E4D technology, we can now craft porcelain crowns in just one visit, saving you valuable time. E4D takes digital impressions of your teeth then sends this information to a computerized milling unit that works on your new crown while you wait. After only around an hour, you’ll be ready to head out in the world with new confidence and a new, complete look.

In addition, other restorative dentistry procedures we can offer you here in our Aurora office are:

  • Fillings
  • Dentures and Partials
  • Root Canal Treatment
  • Complete Mouth Reconstruction, for those with multiple needs

If you’re in need of restorative dentistry, don’t let the time get away from you.  Let Dr. D’Amico, Dr. Mauck, and their team help you keep smiling!  Call our office in Aurora today with any questions you might have about our restorative dentistry procedures, or if you’re ready to schedule a consultation. Our office serves patients from the greater Denver area as well, including Centennial, Englewood, and Parker.
