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.

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.

Now that we’re into October, fall is in full swing. That means cooler weather, fall colors, and shorter days. It also means the holidays are almost here. In fact, the first major one of the holiday season, Halloween, is just weeks away. And along with the holiday season come certain things you won’t want to miss: holiday parties and holiday treats.
But when you have questions about how your smile is doing, it can be harder to enjoy either of these to the fullest. You might feel self-conscious instead, worried that you have gum disease or a cavity that needs to be treated. Or you might just be self-conscious about how your smile looks.
During a regular checkup and cleaning with D’Amico & Mauck, DDS your doctor can thoroughly assess your oral health to help you put your anxieties to rest. Not only can Dr. Nicholas D’Amico or Dr. Matt Mauck tell you if your smile needs help, they can also recommend a cosmetic dentistry treatment to help you create a more dazzling smile. All so you can face the upcoming holiday season with a greater sense of confidence.
What’s more, regular exams and cleanings can help you support your overall health. In recent medical studies, gum disease has been connected with a wide range of health problems including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and even pregnancy complications.
Has it been more than six months since your last checkup and cleaning at D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora? If you live in Denver, Centennial, Englewood, Parker or beyond, call us today to reserve your next appointment. A healthy smile is key to enjoying a healthy life.
