The purpose of a titration is to determine the pressure. I don't know how your doctor determined the recommended pressure without a titration.
I don't know myself. I had sleep study and diagnosed with mild  sleep apneia and gave me prescription and second study with follow up apponment .

When I first started using CPAP about 1.5 years ago, the discomfort in my jaw and teeth seemed to get worse during the first few months. I think this was caused by having to get used to the CPAP nasal pillows mask against my face and also to the weight of the hose. 

I only realized while reading your post that I have not noticed any significant jaw discomfort for quite a few months now. I do still clench my jaw a little, but not enough to be a problem.

You probably know that some medications have jaw clenching and teeth grinding as a potential side effect. I take an SNRI antidepressant, and I think that's probably responsible for most of my jaw clenching. I've kind of always thought that the reason I don't have a use a chin strap with my CPAP mask may be due to my tendency to clench my jaw a little.

I think it's difficult to say whether or not your jaw clenching will improve due to using CPAP therapy. You'll probably just have to try and see.

Thank you for responding . I am also wondering about grinding and want to know if that improves .
