Benefits of Chin Straps
CPAP chin straps are an excellent alternative on the market for sleep apnea sufferers that find it difficult to sleep with a full face mask. For those that ordinarily struggle to use nasal or nasal pillow masks, CPAP chin straps can be a helpful tool in keeping the mouth closed and minimising mouth breathing. Often CPAP users that are mouth breathers are discouraged from using nasal masks, as they are not as effective if the wearer continues to breathe through the mouth. However, if you are a mouth breather who wants to try a smaller nasal mask, it may be worth trialling a chin strap for nasal CPAP to see if it’s right for you.
By keeping the mouth closed, chin straps reduce some of the common side effects of CPAP therapy such as a dry mouth or sore throat. They are also effective at minimising mouth snoring.
Chin straps are an affordable and simple solution for those who tend to sleep with their mouth open during the night. The straps are usually lightweight and shouldn’t interfere with your mask headgear. They are often highly adjustable, so it’s easy for you to get the right fit.
Is a Chin Strap Right for Me?
As with everything when it comes to CPAP therapy, it’s important to speak to a sleep specialist to determine if a chin strap is a good fit for you. If you are a restless sleeper, you may find the chin strap fails to stay in place throughout the night, reducing the effectiveness of your CPAP therapy.
Some CPAP chin straps, though they gently keep the jaw from opening, don’t offer a lot of support for the lips, so air can still leak in or out. This may reduce the effectiveness of your CPAP therapy. If you find this is happening for you, try a different style of chin strap that offers more lip support.
While CPAP chin straps can be quite effective at minimising mouth snoring, it’s worth noting that they are not guaranteed to reduce all snoring.
