Result-Oriented Dental Implant Salt Lake City – New Smile. New You.

Your smile is what makes you, YOU! With a dental implant restoration, you can eat all your favorite foods again, start socializing without embarrassment again, and ultimately start being YOU again.  The American Dental Association states that dental implants are one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. Whether you need only a single tooth replaced or a full set of new teeth, we want to help you regain your confidence and your smile through the use of our groundbreaking procedures for placing dental implants.

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. With dental implants, your new smile will improve your oral health and its beauty will last a lifetime. Once you have completely healed from placing your implants dental worries will be a thing of the past.

SafeSmile Placement

While other implant dentists “freehand” the placement of dental implants, our oral surgeons 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 of your dental implants 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 different and difficult tasks for the dentist to do at the same time while you are asleep which increases the chance for error in your dental implants 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 your board-certified anesthetist takes care of you while you’re asleep. Would you want it any other way? Neither would we.


Regardless of whether you need a bone graft or not, 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 you your new smile by placing your final dental implants before your integration is strong enough. If that happens the implant could fracture the bone and need to be replaced entirely. At Nuvia, each one of our dental implants undergoes our TruIntegration tests. This testing 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 dental implants 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 dental implants to be received more effectively.
