Snoring & Sleep Apnea Solutions
Sleep apnea is the disturbance of sleep brought on by fragmented breathing and is more common among men, overweight people, and people over the age of 40. The most common way that breathing is disturbed while sleeping is through snoring. People who have sleep apnea are more at risk for problems such as heart failure, stroke, and hypertension.
We’ve got some really incredible appliances out there now for snoring and sleep apnea. In fact, I was just reading something the other day in one of the journals that said that some of the appliances, that are mandibular re-positioning appliances, that’s when the jaw is pulled forward and down a little bit to increase the air way, that they work about as well as the CPAP machines. I find that to be interesting research, because those machines are so cumbersome and big. The little things that we make for patients are pretty simple and easy to wear. My experience has been that it helps a high percentage of those patients. We’ve got some incredible results with it. People are quite comfortable with them. They’re simple to wear. I think it’s saving marriages.

Many of our patients at Hubbard & Leath Dental come into our office and tell our staff that they are having a hard time sleeping because of sleep apnea. These patients are worried about their future health because they know about the problems that can be brought on by sleep apnea.
Some of our patients who come in seeking help for their sleep apnea have been searching for answers for a long time. In fact, some of our patients have come in and stated that they are using a state-of-the-art CPAP machine and it just doesn’t work for them. A CPAP machine is a mask that covers your mouth and receives air from an attached device. It is designed to open your airways while you sleep.

The custom mouthguard, which we have created for many of our patients at Hubbard & Leath Dental, is designed to align your mouth in such a way that opens your air passage, allowing for improved breathing during sleep.
