Our goal at Dickerman Dental Prosthetics is to assist you in all aspects of your prosthetic fabrications. We use state-of-the-art implant planning software to ensure predictability in every surgical case no matter the complexity. We are always available to help plan your prosthetically driven implant placements and to help enhance the final outcome for your patients. Our guided surgery staff expert, Brandon Dickerman, is a part-time consultant for Straumann® regarding the coDiagnostiX Guided Surgery System and has lectured and conducted training on it across the country.
Since our technicians are informed from state-of-the-art implant planning software, Dickerman is able to offer the ultimate in guided surgery.
With its comprehensive implant planning, we are able to ensure a predictable outcome for every surgery.
We are able to fully communicate with patients and provide them with a complete overview of their surgery and eventual outcome through its advanced visualization features, which increases treatment acceptance.
By completely planning out a surgery beforehand, we can help ensure that everything is prepared and ready so that each surgery is carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We are able to online case share and communicate so that our lab, your practice, and your patient are completely satisfied with the results.
DWOS Synergy™ is a software that allows for a continuous and efficient workflow between our technicians using coDiagnostiX™ and practices using Straumann® CARES® Visual. Synergy allows us to create a digital diagnostic waxup that will be used to plan the placement of implants to ensure truly esthetic results. We will be able to fabricate a laboratory processed pre-surgical provisional restorations with the guided surgical stent. If the intention is to begin to shape the soft tissue from the day of surgery but not load the implant, we can fabricate a custom gingival former that terminates at the soft tissue crest.
All of our technicians at Dickerman Dental Prosthetics are dedicated to simplifying surgeries and reducing patient discomfort and dissatisfaction. When you choose our team of experts you will discover the numerous benefits we provide.
Your patient will appreciate the quality esthetics of our custom provisionals, but its exceptional fit and function will keep them perfectly comfortable throughout the healing process.
Our custom provisionals ensure a perfect fit for your patient, which will decrease the necessary chair time to ensure proper abutment seating.
The provisional will also serve as a blueprint for the final prosthesis. Your patient will be able to provide feedback that will inform the fabrication of the final prosthesis.
When compared to other options, custom healing abutments are more anatomically shaped and biologically advantageous. This provides an easier healing process for the patient.
At Dickerman Dental Prosthetics we are well versed in guide fabrication for the edentulous patient including the fabrication of guided bone reduction. We have a workflow in place for fabricating sequential guides starting with a guide for drilling the fixation pin sites prior to reflecting a flap. The second guide is the bone reduction guide that sits directly on the mandibular bone and is supported by the fixation pins. The 3rd and final guide is for drilling the implant osteotomies and is also stabilized on the fixation pins.
Our expert technicians at Dickerman are able to fabricate any guide design needed so that every patient can benefit from the consistency of guided surgery.
