Dry mouth

If you normally breathe through your mouth while sleeping or your mouth falls open during sleep, CPAP may increase dry mouth. 

Using a heated humidifier each night with CPAP will decrease the dryness. 

A full face mask (fits over mouth and nose) may work better for you. If you wear a nasal type mask a chin strap may help keep your mouth closed and reduce air leak.
