I need mask info

I need mask info
I am a mouth breather and have tried all the full face masks and all have leaks . I have decided to try the nasal possible pillow ones also with a chin strap. I need ideas on which one are easier to get used to and also looking at nasal pillow masks.

RE: I need mask info
Welcome to the forum.

I was a mouth breather and trained myself to breathe thru my nose, it took time and a combination of taping and the tongue trick. Check out the mouth breathing section of the MAsk Primer (in my signature)

RE: I need mask info
OP asked about recommendations for a pillow mask. I have used the ResMed P10 and the F&P Brevida. For me (may not be the same for OP), the Brevida has been wonderful. Although I use medium in many masks, the small size Brevida pillow works best for me. Very easy to get used to. Seal is great. But I still had mouth leak.

FWIW, although I am not a mouth breather during the day, my chin goes slack during the night -- resulting in0 large leaks and sahara-desert dry mouth. I found chin strap confining and reluctantly tried mouth taping. Sorry I waited a year to try taping. Now I have zero large leaks. The MedVance silicone tape keeps my mouth closed even if jaw goes slack. It is very flexible and comfortable. It is easy to remove, which is not the case with some tapes. To the OP - may I recommend trying tape.
