Implant Placement & Restoration

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one possible form of restoration when there is a loss of teeth and replacement is necessary. A dental implant is a surgical element that affixes within the jaw in order to provide a stable support for a dental prosthesis (ex. a crown).

Patient Testimonial

I wish I would have found Dr. Dickerson years ago! I met Dr. Dickerson in 2017 after doing a search for OBI specialists in the Denver area. Dr. Dickerson took the time to address my jaw and teeth concerns in a straightforward manner. She has a holistic approach that I value greatly, and she is dedicated to delivering high quality dental care at very fair rates. I am grateful to have found a good fit. The staff at Dynamic Dental Solutions is great- they are personable and very responsive. I look forward to my visits!

What types of implants are utilized at Dynamic Dental Solutions?

Ceramic Zircon Oxide Implants

Dynamic Dental Solutions is dedicated to providing our patients with the most innovative options for dental care, including dental implants. Based on exhaustive research, our practitioners have committed to utilizing ceramic implants. Here are some reasons why our dentists prefer ceramic to metal implants:
1. Cosmetic Advantage: Metal implants often present a grey huge through the gums or around the edges of the crown. Ceramic implants are white and mimic natural tooth exquisitely.¹
2. Metal-Free: Research continues to suggest that the dental application of metal implants can result in negative health implications for the patient.1,5 Therefore, the use of non-metal ceramic implants avoids any such potential ramifications.
3. Immunologically Neutral/Biocompatible: Zirconia has no free surface electrons, making it an inert material. Thus, studies show that it does not act as an interference field within the energetic meridians of the body. 6,7
4. Healthy Integration: Growing research indicates that zirconia poses little to no risk for peri-implantitis.8,9 In other words, it generally heals readily to healthy bone and rarely accumulates inflammatory bacteria. Thus, many of the leading biological dentists find zirconia implants to have higher long-term success rates than metal implants.¹

What Is The Implant Treatment Process?

Implant Placement

As with any care provided at Dynamic Dental Solutions, the decision to use ceramic implants first begins with a comprehensive exam and a thorough diagnosis using state-of-the-art 3D radiographic images when necessary. If after this diagnostic conversation, the patient and doctor determine that a ceramic implant is the ideal choice for treatment, then we will begin assisting the patient in preparation for that process. 

 

Our doctors and team implement special measures to ensure each patient is sincerely and holistically cared for before, during, and after their dental procedure; taking any steps feasible to safeguard optimal results and a positive experience.

Implant Restoration

Once the ceramic implant has fully integrated and healed, our doctors will replace the temporary prosthetic with a long-term solution (ex. a permanent crown) that is custom fabricated to enhance the patient’s smile. During the delivery of this prosthetic, a holistic approach is taken to provide optimal functionality, esthetics, and biocompatibility.
