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

"Todd, Somehow I missed your post before I put up mine below).  Do you know if there are any studies or journal articles to support this? (The relation between clenching and nasal resistance).  Thanks. Steven Oxygen Pillow"

Steven replied to Sandra Ford's discussion Bruxism and TMJ linked to Sleep Apnea
"Anecdotal, at best... When I clench my jaw, I have a noticeable reduction in nasal resistance (almost like a breathe-rite strip-try it). It also seems like it would be less likely for the tongue to detach from the hard palate and shift…"

Steven replied to Alan C's discussion Preventing Supine Position Sleeping
"Alan, When you go to sleep on your side, are you comfortable? How quickly do you fall asleep? Do you overheat or get sweaty when you sleep? When you are on your side, do you stack or fold the pillow? Or, put your arm under the pillow? Enough…"

Steven replied to Matt's discussion How do you keep your mouth shut when you're sleeping?
"Love this topic! If anyone has any medical info about this, let me know. My thoughts are below. I think the best way to prevent a loss of the tongue seal is to facilitate side sleeping with a slight incline. I think pillow position and support also…"

Steven replied to TOM GIBBS's discussion RESTLESS SLEEP 12-09

Steven replied to Marie Davis's discussion Pillows, pillows and more pillows.....
