Question About Tooth Pulled
Hi, I had a tooth pulled today as emergency, lost blood and don't have other teeth in the area of where my tooth was pulled. Can I use my Bipap (setting 14-18) tonight or do I have to wait a specified time? Dentist said it was ok but don't think he knew much about sleep apnea. My sleep doctor not around for the weekend. Thanks all who answer.

Riv, if it's not too painful I would use it, your using a FFM so it shouldn't push on your teeth, possibly the lower ones if the mask pushes up.

I had a molar extracted last spring. Used my CPAP system with my FFM that very night. No problem.

I was given a mouth rinse with Chlorhexedine gluconate which I used just before mask strap on.

RE: Question About Tooth Pulled
I have had (sadly) a tooth pulled multiple different times. The dentist didn't know, and didn't care either way, but didn't think it would be an issue. Sleep doc said it was up to me, but if no machine, I was to sleep in a recliner or chair.

All that said, I have always used my machine, right after a tooth pull (Dental chicken, shocky when I get home, directly to bed after) - one time I ended up with a 'dry socket' - no idea if the machine caused it or not.

One thing I'm afraid of is getting dry socket, Pete.
Read the Mayo Clinic on and how to prevent Dry Socket.

RE: Question About Tooth Pulled
The CPAP should cause no issues with a typical tooth extraction. A humidifier would be best as it would help to keep the mouth moisturized.

A dry socket happens when that blood clot (within the hole left by the tooth) is removed. Usually that happens from sucking on a straw or some other similar action. I don't believe that the air from a CPAP would be strong enough to do that. I would think the force of snoring due to NOT using the CPAP would be worse.

Well, the dentist himself didn't think the machine BLOWING air would/could cause a dry socket. Out of five pulls (so far), only one dry socket (more than enough thank you) - I only mentioned it for completeness - I did not smoke, or use straws for like a week after each pull - but I do tend to make a suction in my mouth at night - so who knows...

For me it was easy - sleep with machine, or do not sleep - 'nuff said...
