Hi,
I just thought I'd throw in my 2cents. I had a thought that it's possible you were opening your mouth at times during the night when using the nasal pillow.

I only use a full-face mask so I don't have any personal experience to say what the likelihood of this is, but just thought I'd share in case it helps.
