Hummmmm: I would be careful if an upper molar was extracted. The air could cause pressure changes in the sinus and cause an opening between the sinus and mouth thriough the socket. Either take a few days off, or very low pressures. Otherwise, CPAP should not be a problem for the remainder of the mouth.

c-pap: It shouldn't matter if the bleeding has stopped. The c-pap helps you sleep better and it will help you to heal.
