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.
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.
Once your implants are placed, they are fused to your bone in a process called Osseointegration. This is like setting a fence post in wet cement and waiting for it to dry. At Nuvia, we install a titanium bar immediately after placing your implants to prevent any micro-movements and ensure not only the truest fit once Osseointegration is complete, but Absolute Stability immediately after. This is why with Nuvia’s permanent teeth in 24 hours, you can eat soft foods immediately instead of having to go on a liquid diet for 2-3 weeks like is required with traditional, “Teeth-In-A-Day”.
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.
Dr. Preston Hansen grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, Dr. Hansen attended the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco.
He then went on to a formal 4 year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at UCSF Fresno where he received the most rigorous surgical training available for dentists. He is currently the Clinical Director of Nuvia.
Dr. Jordan Heimer graduated from the Dental College of Georgia and completed his dental surgical residency in Salt Lake City, Utah at George Wahlen Veteran’s Affairs General Practice.
His favorite part about working for Nuvia is his ability to focus on each patient individually, “Working as a general dentist created a very busy day that never let me spend the time I wanted with people. But, here at Nuvia, we are patient focused all the way. There are no guesses with these patients, we get this great result every time”.
In his spare time, Jordan loves cycling. He is an ex-professional cyclist, and worked as a professional bike mechanic who toured the world to work for a few different cycling teams. One lesson he learned from cycling is “To put my head down and grind out work regardless of what it takes. It taught me to use work as a means to live, not using life as a means to work”.
