CPAP & Dry Mouth

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,DanSee More

Outrageous Claims by Dentists???

I am responding to your post "Outrageous claims by dentists". You mention an unfortunate situation where a dentist placed an oral appliance in a patient's mouth without any diagnostic basis for doing so. There can be no justification for this behavior and no dentist who is trained in sleep medicine would do such a thing. It takes very little training and no understanding of sleep medicine to learn how to make a "snore appliance". It takes a great deal of training and a significant amount of… Continue

Dr. Lawler, I sense your genuine conviction in the effectiveness of your therapy. It's up to doctors like yourself who have rare insight to push the boundaries to make things happen. I hope you unveil your therapy to the world through SleepGuide. We here at SleepGuide would be honored to support your efforts in any way possible.

Dr. Lawler, I was fascinated by the webpage you sent me to. I'd suggest you gather more feedback by posting a new topic on it at , but until then, here are my thoughts:

I think you do a really good job of talking about the physiology of this problem/ the anatomical issues. You don't do as much talking about how the treatment will help. I don't think that should be the focus necessarily, since i appreciate the in-depth explanation of the anatomy. But somewhere you should highlight how your treatment helps.

Dr. Lawler,
For many years... (Well too many) I have looked at my super obese patients and wanted to try a combination of therapy. Dental appliances in tandem with CPAP.
One case a 700 lbs male's obstructed apnea could not be reduced any lower than 60 events per hour and had desaturations as low as 68% with 3 liters of oxygen. In just a couple of weeks of testing he passed away. This was a tragedy that should not have happened. He refused tracheotomy; I wanted his Physician to try a dental device as well. This patient had a week jaw and a neck girth of 29 inches.
This is that one patient I have thought about and sure will continue to haunt me.
