RE: Observations, Aerophagia, Pillows/vs Mask
I went to see a dentist that specializes in the dental devices and does research related to them at the university here (e.g. I suspect she knows what she is talking about). One drawback is that your bite changes over years of usages of the dental device resulting in an inability to chew normally or completely. For me that made PAP every so much more attractive.

Thanks Chill! Makes it more attractive to me also. I wasn't told that. I'm really leaning away from that option now. I don't believe I've invested enough time in the PAP world. Like everyone else, I just want comfy, low leak mask(s).
