Dr. Hay and his staff are one of the most talented and caring dental practices I have had the good fortune to experience. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone needing dental services. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and comfortable during your visits.
Enjoy Quality Rest by Treating Your Sleep Apnea in Paducah
Everyone appreciates a good night’s sleep. If you struggle with sleep apnea in Paducah, you can get the rest you need with Dr. William E. Hay’s help. He will confirm if your sleep troubles are related to apnea and provide a custom appliance that keeps your airways open. As a result, you can:
- Stop your snoring, so your whole household will sleep better
- Ditch your CPAP to wear a comfortable sleep appliance
- Wake up refreshed and energized to take on the day
- Improve your concentration so you perform better at work or school
- Reduce your risk for systemic health issues
Say Goodbye to Your CPAP With This Comfortable Alternative
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that causes the airway in your throat to close during the night, briefly cutting off your breathing. It can cause you to snore or wake up gasping for air, leading to frequent interruptions to your sleep. When you visit our practice, Dr. Hay can fit you for a custom oral appliance that will stop this from happening.
During your consultation, Dr. Hay will arrange a sleep test. This will confirm if your sleep troubles are related to apnea. Once this diagnosis has happened, we can set up a virtual visit with a sleep specialist. We’ll also take digital scans of your teeth that are used to create a custom oral appliance. Unlike a CPAP machine, this device is:
- Comfortable to Wear – Your sleep appliance will fit you perfectly. After just a few nights, you’ll barely feel like you’re wearing it. This is far better than a CPAP that can be awkward to wear while you sleep.
- Simple to Maintain – You can easily clean your sleep appliance with a soft toothbrush and gentle soap. It’s that simple! You can also take it with you while you travel by simply packing it in your suitcase with other oral hygiene supplies.
- Easier to Incorporate Into Your Lifestyle – Because of the ease of its use, you are more likely to continue wearing this appliance each night. As a result, you can expect more long-term relief.
I am so pleased with the amount of time Dr. Hay took to examine my records & my CT scan & explain the next process needed in my care! His entire staff is extremely caring & helpful as well! I will be sharing photos soon! I can’t wait to have a beautiful smile again! Thank you Dr. Hay for the exceptional care I received!
Dr. Hay has put together one of the best office staff and dental associates I have ever encountered. Everyone there is so friendly and down to earth. Dr. Hay and wife Nicky are so kind and thorough if it’s a checkup all the way to dentures. I highly recommend Dr. Hay’s dental practice to anyone. If you are not smiling when you get there; you’ll be smiling when you leave!
I can’t express enough how pleased I am with Dr Hay and his wonderful staff! I couldn’t be happier with my results and also the feeling that I leave with after each visit. They feel like family.
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Hay since he came to Paducah. I agree with others that the office staff and dental assistant are kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. Dr. Hay is a talented clinician who has earned our trust and respect. Thank you so much!

I had a great experience on my visit. Dr. Hay was very caring and gave me valuable information, in addition to a comprehensive check up. They come highly recommended! Thank you again, and see you next time!
I would highly recommend Dr. Hay and his staff, I hadn’t been to the dentist in 15 years because of past bad experiences and I was a nervous wreck going to the dentist. When I walked in I was met by Alisha who is so sweet and calming, then I met Nikki and together they got me calmed down, took my X-rays and then Dr. Hay came in explained everything I needed done and what options I had, I was so happy to hear they offered sedation. I needed lots of work and I was put under sedation, woke up and had a beautiful smile! If you want a dentist office that makes you honestly feel comfortable and relaxed go see Dr. Hay and his staff you will feel completely different about going to the dentist. I no longer have a fear and enjoy going to get a teeth cleaning.
Everyone is so nice!!! If you want to be treated with respect and have someone care about you. Go see Dr. Bay and his staff !!!
A great team of people gave me my smile back. Dr Hay did an amazing job!
Sleep apnea is a condition caused when your airway becomes obstructed while you sleep. This usually occurs when your tongue or other soft tissue in your mouth temporarily relaxes. This causes frequent interruptions in your breathing that make it nearly impossible for you – and often your household – to get a good night’s rest.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition because it interrupts critical airflow while sleeping. It can leave you feeling lethargic during the day and interfere with your work productivity and your personal life. In addition, sleep apnea has been linked to serious health conditions like high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression.
Yes, you are quite likely to feel fatigued if you suffer from sleep apnea. This sleep disorder prevents you from reaching the stages of deep sleep, including REM sleep. Without deep sleep, you will experience the effects of sleep deprivation. That can leave you feeling tired and dealing with daytime sleepiness.
