Three years ago, my dental hygienist told me to wear my whitening trays overnight. Once a month is all I need - I don't like the extreme white "Chic-lets" look. I noticed, before my sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment, I would sleep a little bit better during the nights I would wear my trays. Seemed to help "jut my jaw" out a bit.
A year ago I was diagnosed with sleep apneas and stopped wearing the trays at night because I didn't know if they would interfere with therapy. I switched to wearing them about 4 hours during the day and now I have to do that 2-3 times a month. I'd like to go back to wearing them overnight when I'm not thinking about drinking water, having a snack … or all those things I "have to do" when I have them in during waking hours.
So, my question is: Does anyone out there wear "teeth whitening trays" at night? If so, any comments? Problems? Do the trays "dry out" or otherwise get damaged? Is your therapy as successful as the nights you don't wear the trays?
