Hi, I've noticed in the past few months of using my CPAP (Philips Dreamstation) that my teeth appear to have shifted... Has anyone else had that happen? I'm a little concerned about it...
Thanks for any replies.

Hi everyone, have you noticed that your teeth have shifted after wearing your CPAP mask? Is this common? What should @sleepy do about it?

I just started using my CPAP machine so it is too early to tell.
Nope. Been using machine since 2004.
I've never had such problems with my CPAP, but I observed that my teeth became yellow. Does anyone know how to make them white again? :D
Hey there! I've also experienced some discoloration with my teeth while using a CPAP machine. It's frustrating when we're trying to improve our health and end up with unexpected side effects. As for whitening teeth, I recommend checking out afterva.com. They have an article that explains some effective ways to brighten your smile, including natural remedies and professional treatments. It's definitely worth a read if you're looking to improve the appearance of your teeth.
I noticed a month after using my CPAP Phillips Dream Wisp mask my teeth moving . It has been 3 months now and I have a noticeable gap between my two front teeth and a bottom tooth that sticks out now. I went to my dentist today and he told me it would keep happening and I am getting retainers to wear at night to stop further movement of teeth. But, it will not correct what has already happened. I dont think this is common at all and I don't even wear the mask all night long.
I haven't personally experienced it, it's not uncommon for some people to notice teeth shifting or changes in their bite while using CPAP.
I get your concern about teeth shifting from using a CPAP mask. It can be a bit freaky, right? While I can't speak from personal experience, it's always a good idea to consult with a dental professional to address your concerns.
