What Makes Nuvia Different?

The Safest Dental Implant Surgery Available Today

The SafeSmile™ Method

SAFESMILE PLACEMENT

While other implant dentists “freehand” the placement of implants, we use advanced surgical mapping technology to plan out your procedure in advance. Then, your surgery is performed using a custom “guide” that ensures the optimal placement of each implant with pinpoint accuracy. We don’t leave your life-changing smile restoration to chance. You shouldn’t either.

SAFESEDATION

Some dentists try to cut costs by performing both your implant procedure and sedation by themselves, which increases the chance for error in your procedure. At Nuvia, every patient is assigned their own board certified anesthetist at no extra charge. You can rest assured that your implant surgeon will be 100% focused on your procedure, while a certified anesthetist takes care of you while you’re asleep. Would you want it any other way? Neither would we.

TRUINTEGRATION

It takes time for the bone to integrate and take a firm enough hold on your implant.  Some other clinics rush to get your final smile placed before your integration is strong enough. If that happens the implant could fracture the bone and need to be replaced entirely. At Nuvia, all of our implants undergo TruIntegration tests. This gives us a reading of how strong your implants have integrated into the bone and tells us when we can connect your final set of teeth to the implants so they can last a lifetime without worry.

RAPIDRECOVERY

Sometimes the body needs a little help to heal from the procedure, so we place something called a “membrane” on the site. Other clinics use manufactured membranes which can compromise the healing process. At Nuvia, our implant technicians use your own white blood cells to create a custom membrane. This provides a more natural healing process allowing the site to heal much quicker and the implant to be received more effectively.

Dental Implants Are The Long Term, Permanent 

TOOTH LOSS SOLUTION

Just like your natural teeth

Dental Implants are fixed anchors that act and feel just like natural teeth

Thanks to advanced dental implant technology, you could be enjoying a new smile in as quick as 1 day!

The Superior Alternative To Dentures

Because dental implants are secured just like natural teeth, they won’t slip or move around while you eat or talk. 

You'll be able to enjoy all your favorite foods again and never worry about them falling out like dentures.

Dental Implants Are Essential To Preventing Jawbone Loss, Wrinkles & Pre-Mature Aging

When teeth are missing, the jawbone shrinks over time (and constant pressure from dentures can even accelerate the problem). 

Properly placed dental implants integrate with the bone stopping deterioration and preventing further loss.*
