What is the purpose of a chinstrap?
Nasal delivery devices are the preferred mode of delivering CPAP air. They are smaller, lighter and usually more comfortable, with many styles and sizes to choose from.

When using a nasal device with a CPAP, it is imperative that the mouth remain closed for the pressure to be maintained and the therapy to be effective. Most people will automatically keep their mouth closed while on CPAP, but some are unable to do so, at least in the beginning of the therapy.

Use of a Chinstrap is the first response to opening the mouth during sleep. It is worn in addition to the CPAP mask to hold the jaw up and help keep the mouth closed.

Even with the use of a chinstrap, some people are still able to breathe through their teeth and lips. If so, a Full Face Mask is an option worth considering.

Here are some recommended chinstraps:

Ruby-Style Adjustable Chinstrap with Extension Strap
Deluxe-Style Chinstrap
Premium Chinstrap
Halo Chinstrap
What styles of chinstraps are there?
A basic chinstrap cups the chin and has narrow straps that connect at the top of the head, usually with Velcro. It works best for those who sleep on their side and who do not open their mouth very much. The straps may fall forward or backward on the head if not held in place by the mask headgear. An example of this type of chinstrap is the Sullivan Chinstrap.Sullivan Chinstrap

For greater strength, a wider chinstrap is available. The width of the strap is sufficient to cup the chin, and narrow straps are available to attach across the forehead to keep the chinstrap from falling back, as well as across the back of the head to keep it from falling forward. This style of chinstrap is more stable, but it may cover the ears. An example of this type of chinstrap is the Premium Chinstrap.Sullivan Chinstrap

Another style of chinstrap is a series of straps that cup the chin at a lower angle for greater support, and include the stabilizing straps in the design. An example of this type of chinstrap is the CPAP.com Deluxe Chinstrap.

Why is air leaking from my mouth?
Air leaks from the mouth whenever the mouth is opened during CPAP therapy. This occurs for many reasons, but a very common one is due to nasal irritation from the CPAP airflow.

The correlation between the lack of humidification and mouth leaks is a topic being heavily researched. Studies are now being conducted on the hypothesis that a large amount of mouth leakage is caused by the following cycle:
  • CPAP therapy is used with ineffective or no humidification.
  • The nasal membranes are unable to adequately condition the increased airflow and after a few minutes the airway and nasal passages become dry.
  • To remedy the dryness and obtain moisture, the body uses the mouth to breathe.
  • CPAP air follows the path of least resistance and leaks out of the open mouth.
  • The air leaking through the mouth causes more dryness.
  • Patient wakes up feeling tired with significant dryness in mouth and dry, swollen nasal passages.

The answer to this cycle is humidification. If the mouth continues to open during sleep, a chinstrap may be needed to hold the jaw up so that the mouth can close. If mouth breathing continues, a full face mask that covers the nose and mouth is indicated.
Why is my mouth dry in the morning?
Dry mouth is a sign that you are opening your mouth while you sleep. If you use nasal mask, breathing through your mouth bypasses any humidification you may be using so increasing the heat will not be effective. Breathing through your mouth while using a nasal mask reduces the benefit of the CPAP therapy.

First be sure the mask is not leaking. If it is six to nine months old and leaking, try replacing it. If it is new and leaking, we can help you get a better size.

If your mask is new and NOT leaking, try a chinstrap to keep your jaw up and mouth closed. If a chinstrap doesn't solve the problem, try a full face mask that covers your nose and mouth.

If you use a full face mask and have a dry mouth, try adding a heated humidifier to add moisture.

papcap

Verified purchase | Sep. 15, 2023 | Vincent D. | Recommended
Solved a problem I have been struggling with for years. Bald guys can't use a conventional chin strap. No hair, no friction, the strap slips and moves when you are sleeping allowing your mouth to open and the cpap air escapes

Keeps my mouth closed while using my cpap machine

need two, clean once a week, expensive

Good Results!

Verified purchase | Apr. 05, 2021 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
This Pap cap works very well in getting a good mask seal and helping me to get a good nights sleep. I had tried a chinstrap through my med. insurance but could not get this good of an outcome. the Papcap stayed in place all night and soon I expect to rate it excellent. My company does not offer this product, too bad for them !

Cap slides forward during the night

Verified purchase | Feb. 27, 2021 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
I have only used for three nights but each night I find the cap has slid forward during the night so far that it covers my eyes. The velcro on the cap should be farther back in my opinion to pull down evenly on the cap. The Velcro on the cap is front of center and with any tension on the chin strap constantly is pulling down on the front half of the cap. I still like this since I don't wake up in the morning with grooves in my skull from the other chin straps I have used. It actually seems to work better if I put the cap on backwards with the flap and velcro to the front. This moves the velcro the chin strap attaches to back so that the chin strap is pulling the cap down instead of forward.

Satisfied repeat customer

Verified purchase | Dec. 08, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
I am a regular PapCap user and repeat customer. I tried several different chinstrap styles and brands over the years and find the PapCap the best. It keeps my chin up and my mouth closed, allowing my CPAP to do what it is supposed to do..

Works, But Too Hot For Summer

Verified purchase | Aug. 22, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
The design is unique, it’s a good idea. It worked well, but I’m waiting until the weather cools down before using it again as it made me hot, even with the air conditioning set at 72 degrees. Other than that it was comfortable.

Useless. Expensive. And useless.

Verified purchase | Feb. 26, 2019 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
Flimsy design, poorly engineered to stay in place. My AHI #s tripled the few nights I replaced my traditional chinstrap with this lousy alternative. Completely disappointed.
