Tooth pain, jaw shifting?
I've noticed since I started with my machine. I'll wake up in the morning with sore teeth occasionally.

Also sometimes I wake up at night and my jaw is pushed forward like an underbite.

Has anyone else experienced this?

With my full face mask I will have sore lower teeth/jawbone if the lower straps are adjusted too tight. I din't think your nasal mask would do that.
The jaw shift that you are experiencing could be caused by certain fitting or adjustment of the chin strap if you are using one. It might be worth discussing with your DME supplier and/or your dentist.

RE: Tooth pain, jaw shifting?
Also have upper teeth pain using nasal mask (F&P 405). This is because lower straps are too tight after chasing major mask leaks. Also in my case the gum is very sore above left canine tooth. Concluded a new mask is needed so back to my DME.

Recommend you back off the lower straps in minor adjustments (1/8") at a time to relieve the pressure on your teeth. The mask should be floating on the cushions instead of tightly fitted to your face. Fitting mask correctly seems to be the one major issue with many users of CPAP. Good luck with your journey on CPAP.
