Tongue "resting" against the front teeth will keep you from opening your mouth during CPAP therapy.

How do you know you are doing it while you are asleep?

Then you need to be seeing a dentist because there's a real chance that something else is going on to cause the loose teeth besides your tongue.

Normally once we are asleep the tongue relaxes and puts no pressure on anything and even if you could maintain some pressure on your teeth from your tongue...you aren't doing it 24/7 unless you do it while awake too.

That's a good thing... it means your tongue is sealing air from escaping your mouth. I had to cinch up my chin strap to prevent air from leaking out to prevent loosing therapy/pressure support. I believe there is a brace to wear to help with discomfort, they are to treat Apnea, but maybe might work here, as long as you don't need to breathe through your mouth.

There's nothing at all one can do with one's tongue that will affect even remotely normal teeth.

I'm having the same issue. I'm using the Resmed P30i and I've found that my tongue is plastered against the back of my top teeth.

I've noticed my front teeth separating. It's happened so much now that my front teeth can not physically touch my bottom teeth. I can't bite a cuticle, can't open a pack of ketchup.

Interesting article. My issue probably has to do with the fact that I'm at 18cm of pressure and my tongue takes all that and shoves it up and forward. Regardless, I see a CPAP-related orthodontia bill in my 41-year-old future.

I wonder if a bite guard would help mitigate that....
