How Can Implant-Retained Dentures Help You? Restorative Dentistry in Aurora, CO

October 9, 2014

Millions of American men and women wear dentures, but this removable restorative prosthetic isn’t the right answer for everyone. Advances in modern restorative dentistry now make it possible for dentists to offer a wider variety of tooth replacement solutions, including implant-retained dentures. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck provide edentulous patients with a way to enjoy a fully functional bite and a gorgeous smile that looks and feels completely natural.

494375087Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures

While traditional dentures do meet the basic needs of many Americans, a substantial number of patients missing all of their teeth are more inclined to seek a more permanent and stable tooth replacement solution. Fortunately, it is now possible to combine the realistic look of custom dentures with the security and support afforded by dental implants.

With implant-retained dentures, the full arch of custom-crafted replacement teeth is affixed to the jaw using biocompatible titanium posts. These metal implants are surgically placed within the bone of the jaw for unparalleled stability. Worries of slipping dentures, discomfort, and embarrassing moments when speaking or eating become a thing of the past. You can finally enjoy the freedom and confidence that comes with knowing that your dentures will stay in place, no matter what. Drs. D’Amico & Mauck will happily sit down with you to discuss your unique case, your needs, and your expectations. Our goal is to ensure your comfort, health, and happiness, and we’re always here to answer any questions you may have regarding our restorative dentistry solutions.

Repair and Restore with Custom Tooth-Colored Fillings in Aurora, CO

August 20, 2014

476106489Dental fillings are among the most commonly performed dental procedures today, providing a structurally compromised tooth with the strength it needs to function even after it has been affected by decay. For decades, fillings were made of an amalgam of silver, mercury, and other metals, but today’s dental technology makes it possible for us to provide a much better alternative. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck offer patients a modern restorative option that blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth: composite tooth-colored fillings.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

The most obvious benefit associated with tooth-colored fillings is the aesthetic factor. Because the composite resin is precisely color-matched to the natural shade of your tooth enamel, the worry of a conspicuous dark metal filling is a thing of the past. This is particularly important when the filling is required on a tooth surface that is clearly visible when you smile. With tooth-colored fillings, you can feel free to smile openly. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had a filling placed because the results look completely natural.

Another prime benefit of tooth-colored fillings is their resistance to changes in temperature. While metal fillings have been shown to expand and contract due to extreme heat or cold, composites maintain their size and shape. This means that there is a significantly reduced risk of microfractures in the enamel over time. Furthermore, tooth-colored fillings allow for the preservation of more tooth enamel, meaning that we can preserve more of your natural smile than with silver amalgam restorations.

Achieve Your Healthiest, Most Beautiful Smile

Drs. D’Amico and Mauck look forward to helping your smile look and feel its best with our extensive array of restorative, preventive, and cosmetic dentistry services. Contact us today to schedule your appointment, and learn more about the advantages afforded by tooth-colored fillings. Our family-friendly dental practice in Aurora, CO proudly serves patients from neighborhoods in surrounding communities as well, including Denver, Centennial, Denver Tech Center, Parker, Englewood, and more.

When Do Teeth Fall Out? What to Expect and When

May 22, 2014

Shutterstock Little Girl at DentistFor an adult, the prospect of losing a tooth can be terrifying – unless, of course, you are the proud parent of a little one who is looking forward to his or her first visit from the tooth fairy! At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck offer a wide range of general and family dentistry services, as well as accurate, reliable information for parents looking to keep their child’s smile healthy and looking great.

Tooth Loss Time Table

In most cases, a child’s primary teeth (more commonly referred to as baby teeth) begin to grow loose naturally at around the age of five or six. Girls typically precede boys in tooth eruption and loss, though this isn’t always the case. Teeth will generally fall out in the order in which they erupted, with the two bottom front teeth – lower central incisors – coming out first. The two top teeth, or upper central incisors, are next. By the age of about 9 to 12, all four of the canines will be lost and replaced gradually by adult teeth.

Under normal circumstances, all primary teeth will have been lost by the age of about 12 or 13 years. It is important to remember that, while baby teeth will eventually be replaced by permanent ones, their care during these formative years is still incredibly important. Proper oral hygiene at home and regular visits to our office will ensure that your child’s smile remains as healthy as it is bright.

Tooth Loss as an Adult

Of course, tooth loss doesn’t only affect children. The loss of a permanent tooth is a very serious event and should be addressed as soon as possible by our trusted team of doctors and staff. If you are an adult and are missing one or more permanent teeth, please contact our office to schedule your consultation with Drs. D’Amico and Mauck. We’d be happy to provide you with a full array of tooth replacement options, including crown and bridgework, dentures and partials, and dental implants.

D’Amico & Mauck: Your Trusted Source for Comprehensive Care

Whether your child has already begun to lose his or her primary teeth and you have concerns regarding childhood oral health, or you’d simply like to schedule a routine checkup appointment, we’re here to help. Contact our office in Aurora, CO today and speak with our caring, experienced staff. Our conveniently located office proudly serves families from throughout the Aurora area, as well as nearby communities in Denver, Englewood, Centennial, Parker, and beyond.

Porcelain Crowns Provide Your Smile with Exceptional Form and Function

April 21, 2014

Shutterstock Pretty Woman SmileDental crowns have long been used to supply necessary strength and protection to teeth that have succumbed to injury or decay. Thanks to modern dental technology and revolutionary cosmetic dentistry advancements, porcelain crowns can also be used to seamlessly correct visible flaws as well, including deep staining, gaps, persistent discoloration and more. At D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora, CO, Dr. Nicholas D’Amico and Dr. Matt Mauck offer a variety of exceptional cosmetic dentistry treatments to build flawless smiles, including custom-crafted porcelain crowns.

Why Choose Porcelain Crowns?

Dental porcelain is an incredibly strong, full customizable material that very closely resembles the luster of natural tooth enamel. When a tooth sustains a serious injury, such as a fracture or chip, our doctors can preserve the affected tooth with a porcelain crown that looks great and fortifies the area as well. Following treatment of a root canal, a crown may be placed to add strength and beauty to the tooth in question, all while sealing out additional harmful bacteria. Smiles that feature teeth that are oddly spaced or misshapen may also benefit from the placement of porcelain crowns.

One of the primary benefits of porcelain crown restoration at D’Amico & Mauck, DDS is the speed with which we can provide you with your new crown right here in our office. With E4D technology, our doctors will take precise digital impressions of your teeth and transmit this information to our on-site milling unit for fabrication while you wait. In only about an hour, we can place your beautiful new porcelain crown, allowing you to leave our office smiling comfortably and confidently once again. No messy impressions or multiple visits required!

Enjoy the Benefits of a Healthy, Beautiful Smile

Whether you currently have unsightly metal crowns that you’d like to have replaced or you are in need of a new restoration soon, Drs. D’Amico and Mauck are here to help. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our restorative dentistry procedures and provide you with the information you need to make your decision about treatment, so contact our office today. Our family-friendly dental practice in Aurora, CO happily welcomes patients from the surrounding areas of Parker, Denver, Centennial, Englewood, and beyond.

Here’s Everything You Need to Know about Root Canals

January 22, 2013

Out of all the dental procedures you could undergo as a patient, “root canal” always seems to be the phrase that strikes the most fear into people’s hearts. Maybe that’s because over time, the treatment’s been built up to be an unbearably painful and invasive experience. Here at D’Amico and Mauck, DDS, in Aurora, CO, we want you to be fully informed and up-to-date about the variety of effective dental services we can provide you with, and that includes root canal treatment, which certainly isn’t as bad as it’s been built up to be. In fact, root canal treatment is a crucial procedure that can save your natural teeth from having to be extracted due to extensive decay or infection. Here’s some important information you need to know:

What kinds of symptoms show that I might need a root canal?

  • Serious tooth pain when chewing
  • Excessive sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, even after the hot or cold source has been removed.
  • Discoloration (specifically a darkening) of a tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums
  • A persistent pimple that occurs on the gums

What happens during root canal treatment?

It’s simple enough – once Dr. D’Amico or Dr. Mauck have carefully checked the area around the affected tooth in order to determine whether there’s any infection in the surrounded bone, we’ll access the inside of the tooth and the pulp and bacteria will be wholly cleaned out. Your tooth is then sealed. All that’s left then is to see if you might need any further restorations to full functionality.

Is it really worth the pain?

The procedure is incredibly successful, and many teeth that have been treated go on to last a lifetime. And don’t worry – pain during root canal treatment has been greatly exaggerated. Most people report that it hurts no more than when receiving a common filling.

If you think you may be in need of root canal treatment, don’t wait any longer! Dr. D’Amico, Dr. Mauck and their excellent team can provide you with comfortable and effective service that’ll be sure to keep you smiling.  Call our office in Aurora today to schedule your consultation. Our office serves patients from the greater Denver area as well, including Centennial, Englewood, and Parker.

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.
