Our SafeSMile™ MethoD Makes All The Difference.

Our proprietary method makes all the difference in safety, effectiveness and comfort of your dental implant procedure. A new smile restoration is a life-changing investment, we want it to last a lifetime.

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 & ComfortPlus Experience

Some dental implant dentists try to cut costs by performing both your implant procedure and sedation by themselves. This creates two very difficult tasks for the dentist to do at the same time while you are asleep 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.


It takes time for the bone to integrate and take a firm enough hold on your implant so that it won’t break when you bite down on something hard.  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 our 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. That way we can get your smile to you as safely as possible, and give it the best chance to last a lifetime without worry.


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.
