Sleep apnea

Anyone out there tried or still use the dental appliance for your sleep apnea. I was diagnosed last year and have been putting off getting one. Going in next month and curious about the mouth piece compared to the mask. I've had neither yet so just curios for personal experiences.

I tried the mouthpiece for awhile, I could never get used to it. Have been using the cpap machine for 6 years and I can't imagine sleeping without it.

I've been on CPAP for about 2 years. My dentist recently made me a mouth peice, but my tongue somehow seals itself in there, and then I cant breath at all.

I've been on a CPAP for 5 months. I have the small nasal mask. It's very comfortable and I have no problem sleeping with it. I didn't experience the miraculous transformation I was hoping for, but it definitely makes a big difference. I now sleep soundly through the night, no longer wake up several times, and no more snoring.

I tried using a cpap during my sleep study for apnea. They put me on a bipap machine instead because the constant pressure was too much and I wasn't able to exhale. This was after surgery to remove most of the soft palate and uvula.

Sleep Studies aren't a lot of fun. Bipap should be much more comfy. Stick with it.
