Unlock the Secret to a Fear-Free, Gorgeous Smile in Just 24 Hours!

Do you dread the dentist's chair so much that you'd rather endure a toothache than step into a dental clinic? You're not alone—nearly 36% of the population feels the same way. But what if we told you that you could conquer your dental anxiety and walk out with a stunning, permanent smile in just 24 hours? Intrigued? Keep reading to discover how Nuvia Dental Implant Center is revolutionizing the dental implant experience, making it easier, faster, and virtually stress-free.


What Is Permanent Teeth in 24 Hours?

Nuvia has found a way to decrease the amount of time it takes to get a permanent set of teeth when getting dental implants and limit the amount of times you need to come to the office. We believe that setting you up for success while doing our best to help you overcome your dental anxiety along the way, will be beneficial to you. In the past, getting dental implants could be a lengthy process depending on where you go, and for those with dental anxiety, multiple visits can be overwhelming. 

By offering "Permanent Teeth in 24 Hours,” we can help speed up the process and minimize the number of visits required compared to generic “teeth in a day” providers. With this innovative method, you can enjoy a full set of permanent, custom, zirconia teeth in just 24 hours. Our goal is to provide a more convenient and stress-free experience for patients, giving you the confidence to smile and enjoy a healthier, happier life quickly with visiting the dentist as little as possible.

Common Fears and Concerns About Dental Visits

If you're feeling anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist, you're not alone. Many Americans experience fears and concerns about visiting the dentist and getting treatment done. These fears can stem from past experiences, such as discomfort or pain during procedures, or feelings of vulnerability while lying in the dental chair. In some cases, dental anxiety can even lead to someone leaving the dental office and never going back because of the fear. 

Like many people, Christy had a series of negative experiences at the dentist, causing her to put off needed dental care for a very long time. However, when her smile had gotten to a point that it was holding her back, she knew it was time to take action. That's when she found Nuvia and underwent full mouth dental implant surgery. With her new teeth, Christy no longer has to worry about cavities or the need for future root canals or dental fillings. Nuvia helped her achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile, and she's never been happier. If you're in a similar situation, we want to help you transform your smile and your life just like we did for Christy. Watch her story below. 

Communication with Your Dental Professional

You deserve clear and open lines of communication during your dental visits. Our team actively listens to you and we will do our best to help you get the care you need, even if that care is not with us. We want you to feel comfortable and confident about addressing your dental concerns in a safe and welcoming environment. You will receive complete information about your dental implant options, including the procedure, risks and benefits, and treatment plan costs, as all of these are unique to each patient. 

To help you clearly see what our center can offer you, visual aids, such as models of the teeth, videos, and pictures are used to communicate our dental procedures and treatments, ensuring that you are fully informed and confident about your treatment before making the decision. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible and encourage any questions or requests that you may have and we will do our very best to make sure all of your needs are met. 

Creating a Positive Dental Experience

During the consultation, we like to get to know you in a more comfortable environment before introducing you to the clinic or dental chairs, as they may cause you to have feelings of stress, especially before getting to know and trust our team. Instead, we have a suite exclusively prepared for you to have a meaningful conversation about your wants and desires in a calm environment with your smile consultant. This approach helps our patients feel at ease and more confident about their dental implant journey. We will review your unique needs and deliver you a recommended treatment plan along with the cost of your dental implant treatment during your consultation. If there are any special requests that you would like to feel more comfortable with us, please let us know as we will do our best to accommodate them.

Sedation at Nuvia Dental Implant Center

Because we want you to have the best experience possible, we provide general anesthesia during your procedure at no additional cost to you. You will not have to be awake during your dental procedure and are likely not to remember much about the procedure after waking up. This ensures a comfortable and low-stress experience getting your permanent teeth in 24-hours at Nuvia.

To ensure that you are well taken care of during your surgery, our team includes a licensed nurse anesthetist who will administer the sedation and monitor your safety throughout the procedure, as well as an experienced oral surgeon who will perform the surgery. Unlike some generic dental providers where the dentist may be responsible for both sedation and surgery, we believe in a more focused approach to your care by having two dedicated providers. This not only ensures that each individual task is completed with the highest level of attention, but it also eliminates the risk of juggling both the surgery and your safety.

Relaxation Techniques and Coping Strategies

There are a number of relaxation techniques and coping strategies that can be helpful for you if you find that you are experiencing dental anxiety. Here are some of the most effective that we have found:

Deep Breathing Exercises: Practicing deep breathing can effectively slow down your heart rate and alleviate feelings of anxiety and stress. Our dental professionals can teach you simple yet powerful breathing techniques, such as "square breathing," which involves counting to four as you breathe in, holding your breath for a count of four, exhaling for a count of four, and then holding your breath again for a count of four. Repeating this pattern as many times as needed to achieve a sense of calm and relaxation.

Bilateral Stimulation:

Bilateral stimulation involves tapping alternating sides of your body, such as your hands or feet, in a rhythmic pattern. This technique can help regulate your nervous system and reduce feelings of anxiety. To perform bilateral stimulation, gently tap one side of your body, then the opposite side, using your hands, feet, or any other preferred method, and continue to alternate in a rhythmic pattern until you achieve a sense of calm. Some people find it helpful to visualize themselves swaying back and forth on a hammock or rocking gently in a rocking chair, which can further aid in reducing anxiety.

A medical device called "Bi-Tapp" is available to perform this "tapping" for you, all you have to do is wear them. By using bilateral stimulation, this can be a holistic approach to help with anxiety and stress, even outside the dental chair. 

Progressive muscle relaxation:

This technique involves tensing and then relaxing specific muscle groups to help reduce muscle tension and anxiety. By tensing and relaxing, you can help draw awareness to that part of the body and wear out the muscles to help them relax naturally. This can be a powerful tool if you need to recenter and focus on calming down. 

Imagery and visualization:

Patients can be encouraged to use positive imagery and visualization techniques to imagine a peaceful, relaxing scene. This can help to reduce anxiety and stress and promote a sense of calm. It may be helpful to turn on background noise such as birds in the forest or ocean waves and imagine being somewhere you feel at peace. 

Distraction techniques:

Simple distractions, such as listening to music, reading a book, or watching a video, can help to reduce anxiety and stress by taking the focus off of being at the dentist. 

Medication:

For some patients, medication, such as anti-anxiety medication or nitrous oxide (laughing gas), may be prescribed to help reduce anxiety and make the dental process more manageable.

It's important to note that what works best for one person may not work for another, so it's recommended to work with your healthcare and dental professional to find the best approach for your specific needs. In some cases, a combination of techniques may be most effective, such as listening to music and bilateral stimulation. By working together, we can find an effective strategy for managing your dental anxiety and improving your experience as our patient and guest.

The innovative "Permanent Teeth in 24 Hours" procedure offered at Nuvia Dental Implant Center addresses dental anxiety in several key ways, making it an ideal solution for individuals who struggle with fear or apprehension surrounding dental visits.

Patients are provided with complete information about their treatment options, including procedure details, risks and benefits, and treatment plan costs. Visual aids and ample opportunities for questions and requests help ensure that patients feel informed, comfortable, and confident about their treatment.

Comfortable Environment:

To alleviate anxiety, the initial consultation with a smile consultant takes place in a comfortable, non-clinical environment, rather than in the dental chair. This allows patients to discuss their concerns and desires in a more relaxed setting.
