Has anyone tried the mouth device for sleep apnea?  I plan to pick one up tomorrow from my health provider. I'm a bit skeptical about it because I've read it can change your bite. But I'm having no luck with the various masks I've tried. Any feedback would be appreciated.

@helsal When I was first diagnosed, I was "No way will I wear that damn thing every night!"  So, I investigated the mouth device, an oral appliance you wear like kids with orthodontics have to straighten their teeth. 

Unfortunately, the Medicare paid-for model looked like something out of a dark-ages torture chamber.  The smaller oral appliances were over $3000.  So, I made up my mind I'd have to adjust to a face mask.  Which I have.

No I haven’t tried it. I have friends who say it’s a fabulous product. I am currently researching it to see if it would be something affordable.

I have tried several full face units, now I am using AirFit F30i. It fits below the nose and covers the mouth. Better than the full face units. Waiting for the next larger size mask to resolve the fit issue.
