I can't help wondering if the 'specialist' recommends the hard plastic ones that you order thru them after a fitting etc because they make more money off them. I have wondered that for years based on my dentist's same type of recommendation for my night grinding.

On a similar note, I am wondering if night grinding is still an issue after beginning CPAP therapy? I guess unless I get a night vision video camera and video myself during the night, I'll never know.

RE: Sore teeth, but not from grinding
Perhaps the dry mouth is caused by mouth-leaking. It may be that when the pressurized air starts escaping out your mouth, you respond (unconsciously, of course, since you're asleep) by pushing your lower jaw forward.

I would inspect the leak rate graph for extended periods of time where the leak rate is high. A chin strap, or a full face mask, might be worth a try. Mouth-leaking interferes with the machine's ability to keep your airway unobstructed and it can cause arousals that interfere with the quality of your sleep.

RE: Sore teeth, but not from grinding
Well I have a couple mold-able guards I've been using and they do keep the lower jaw from pushing my upper teeth out, but I do still wake up with ALL of my teeth being sensitive from the biting pressure during the night. Not terrible and can be lived with, but something new. This all started, or started to be noticed, with CPAP. Oddly, my AHI and related numbers improved with the guard. From 1.8ish to .4 to .8ish AHI for 2 nights. Snores I believe are similar before and after.

No, the soft rubber promote clenching. You can buy cheap hard plastic ones. It's not a conspiracy.
