Smiles That Last a Lifetime
Dental implants can not only enhance a smile, but improve the quality of our patients’ lives. By maintaining the integrity of the bone structure, dental implants can help improve speaking ability, facial appearance and overall confidence of our patients. With the guidance of Dr. Tempel, we can restore your smile to better than it was before you walked in the door.
We Can Help You Get a Better Night’s Sleep
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your muscles relax during sleep, allowing the soft tissue to collapse and block the airway, causing you to stop breathing up to hundreds of times a night. If left untreated, sleep apnea can be a potentially life-threatening condition. Dr. Tempel is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and will work with your physician to treat snoring and sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy.
