In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.

Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad.

 

Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Dan,

Do you use a chin strap?  If you're a mouth breather, you may need a chin strap to keep your mouth closed. It's important to keep it closed throughout the night for a lot of reasons -- dental, teeth, etc., etc.

I've also used a 3M's Micropore tape to close my mouth overnight. I've found the tape helpful, but must be careful when I remove it in the morning otherwise it pulls off too harshly.  Here's the link at Amazon to get more information:

I hope these two tips help.
