My mouth gets extremely dry at night Will using my sleep apnea machine helps mouth from getting so dry.
See dentist: A mouthpiece may help you with grinding or may even cause you to grind more.

Can septoplasty cure sleep apnea? I've been using a cpap machine for a couple of years. I hate it. My doctor wants me to have a septoplasty for my deviated septum, but she won't say whether it will cure my sleep apnea.
Improving : Improving chronic nasal obstruction can help with sleep apnea, though there's often more going on in the airway to cause blockage than the septum.

Regardless of the sleep apnea, septoplasty can help with chronic nasal obstruction which may be enough of an indication for you to have surgery if it bothers you enough. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Depends on severity: There are many types of mouthguards for grinding and clenching. Over the counter ones actually may be too thick and throw the muscles into more spasms.

You have listed: Sleep apnea as one of your conditions. I assume that you have have seen a sleep medicine specialist & had a polysomnogram. Was a CPAP machine recommended? Do you use one? I am afraid that a sleep medicine specialist who has evaluated you would have probably already provided more information than can be done on-line. Now, if you haven't seen a sleep specialist - please do so. Take care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
