Help - changed mask from full-face to nasal - dry throat

RE: Help - changed mask from full-face to nasal - dry throat
Start practicing this technique.

Tongue Suck Technique:
Place your tongue to the roof of your mouth with tip of tongue behind front teeth.  Slowly suck upwards and back.
This places the tongue in a natural position, with the back of tongue sealing the back of the throat so that if you open your mouth/jaw while sleeping, no air will escape.


As stated above, in time it will become a habit.  I know many of us think we don't mouth breath, but our jaw can become slack and drop open while in deep sleep and air will flow out.  This is the major cause of that awful dry mouth feeling.

Besides the fact if air is flowing out your mouth instead of down your throat, your not getting the proper therapy.

A soft cervical collar can also help hold your jaw up.
