Bite Guard for Mouth Breathing

I heard back from ZYPPAH's customer service. They thought it could work. But my mouth is super small, my dentist has to use children's bitewings. So they are sending me a list of dentists in my area who would check the fit at no cost.

Due to Thanksgiving I haven't done anything more than some reading/Googling. The other two that sound interesting are sold in the UK. Most of the ones in the US advertise that they either hold your mouth open or have extra large breathing holes to accommodate mouth breathing. If I find one that I want to try I would have to seal the hole shut.

I found a mouth taping product that doesn't cover your lips. It is U shaped and goes from under your cheek bones, around your mouth and under your chin. They have three different strengths of tape. Of course that is also made in the UK.

I've been reading a book by Dr Mark Burhene , The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox: How We Are Sleeping Our Way to Fatigue, Disease and Unhappiness. He talked about using a MAD in conjunction with CPAP to improve therapy. The MAD keeps the airway from collapsing, allowing the machine to function more efficiently thereby improving the arousal rate. Helps the person obtain better sleep quality.

Perhaps this could help with arousals caused by RERAs and FLs?
