Add custom points to automatically generated Ticks?

Dear all,

I have an ordinary plot like Plot[x^2,{x,0,10}] and I would like to
add to the x-axis one or two special points , to point out where
certain parameters are located. How to do this in a graphically
attractive way? I have tried to use Epilog with a (vertical) Line and
a Text, but I can't get the Text to be displayed properly below the x-

I have read about Ticks and I was wondering whether there is an easy
way to use that, were "easy" would mean that I don't have to specify
the whole set of Ticks manually, but can first make a plot without any
additional points, then somehow subtract from there the Ticks
generated by Mathematica, then add one or two custum ones and finally
create a new plot with those adjusted Ticks.

Any hints?

Thanks in advance!
