We study in detail the nonperturbative modifications caused to the dynamical quark mass by the inclusion of a small number of quark families in the gluon propagator and ghost dressing function obtained from the unquenched lattice simulations. We solve the quark gap equation using a non-Abelian Ansatz for the quark-gluon vertex which displays a crucial dependence on the ghost dressing function and the quark-ghost scattering amplitude. As a result, we obtain, in the chiral limit, dynamical quark masses of the order of 300 MeV for a different numbers of quark flavors and we find a good agreement with lattice data availaible in the literature.
