Dynamic Dental Solutions
Dr. Dickerson’s practice is based on a holistic assessment of dental and whole-body health. Utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic analysis, she strives to bring harmony between dental health, function, and esthetics.
Dr. Dickerson is accustomed to collaborating with the patient’s personal physician, naturopathic doctor, functional medicine doctor, and other health care providers to ensure the most favorable oral health outcomes for her patients. A combination of biologically-based clinical methods allows Dr. Dickerson to utilize minimally invasive techniques to achieve natural-looking, gorgeous results with the patient’s health and comfort as the highest priorities.
Focuses on the fundamental cause of bite and jaw dysfunction instead of merely treating the symptoms. TMJ dysfunction and excessive tooth wear often stem from a biomechanical imbalance, and Bioesthetic Dentistry provides a conservative avenue for diagnosis and treatment in many cases. Patients with long-standing TMJ symptoms or badly worn teeth can experience life-changing results with Bioesthetic treatment.
A cutting edge, less damaging way of using direct filling techniques with less grinding of the natural tooth structure than some other traditional techniques. Many cosmetic concerns, including “black triangles” can be treated with BioClear methodologies in a very conservative manner.
Comprehensive Analysis and Outcome-Based Treatment Planning
Dr. Dickerson addresses each new patient initially in a non-clinical, consultative environment to learn about their history and understand their highest priorities for their future dental health. From this base of understanding, a thorough oral/dental diagnosis is made utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostics, including cone beam 3D analysis when necessary. Each treatment plan is carefully developed based on the patient’s individual goals and needs. Often, treatment can be staged over the course of time without sacrificing the ultimate goal of long-term health, esthetics, comfort, and function.
An alternative approach to dental care that emphasizes the impact that dental toxins and infections may have on a person’s overall health, offering alternatives that are supportive of total health. Safe protocols are always used in this office for the removal of silver mercury fillings, and Oxygen Ozone therapy is a beneficial adjunct to many of the routine procedures performed here.
Implant Placement & Restoration
Dental Implants are a consideration when teeth are lost and a replacement is necessary. Dr. Dickerson works in collaboration with oral surgeons and periodontists, both locally and from a wide geographical radius, to ensure optimal implant and restorative results. There are multiple factors that affect the final result with dental implants, and we enroll the client as an active participant in setting the priorities for the final outcome.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Treatment is based on the principle of preserving the natural tooth structure as much as possible. We strive to educate our patients on their role in preventing the destruction of their teeth. When it becomes necessary to restore tooth structure, we utilize Bioclear and other methodologies to minimize further tooth grinding as much as possible. We also find that many cosmetic concerns can be addressed utilizing additive procedures rather than grinding the tooth down for restoration.
To assist individuals on their path toward ultimate health with state-of-the-art, biologically sound dental care. In the process, we aim to provide an environment that uplifts the vitality and wellbeing of our collaborative, health-centered network of clients and allied care providers.
