What is the difference between the CPAP PRO and CPAP PRO II?
The CPAP PRO and the CPAP PRO II are identical devices except for the mouthpiece. The CPAP PRO ships with a single Boil 'N Bite mouthpiece that affixes to your upper teeth.
The CPAP PRO II contains a double Boil 'N Bite mouthpiece that affixes to both upper and lower teeth. It gently holds your mouth closed while you sleep and is designed specifically for open mouth breathers. The CPAP PRO II can also easily be converted into a CPAP PRO by removing the lower mouth piece if desired.
How is the CPAP PRO and CPAP PRO II systems different from CPAP masks?
Invented by a severe sleep apnea patient who could not stand the traditional CPAP masks on the market, the CPAP PRO® and the CPAP PRO II® were designed to overcome his own personal CPAP usage problems. Unlike engineers from huge respiratory companies that design masks, but never have had to endure the torture of use, CPAP PRO® and now the CPAP PRO II® has been used nightly by the inventor for the last 18 years, continuously being improved to maximize his own personal comfort. Without annoying straps or headgear, the CPAP PRO® line make CPAP more tolerable by eliminating the pain, sores and claustrophobic panic feelings of conventional CPAP breathing devices and CPAP machines.
Additionally, CPAP PRO® and CPAP PRO II® are much lighter weight than traditional face masks and its design minimizes skin contact so that it is far easier to forget that it is there and sleep comfortably.
What is a Boil 'N Bite Mouthpiece?
Similar to a sports mouthpiece used by athletes, the CPAP PRO® is customized to your exact dental configuration in just minutes right at home. Once formed the CPAP PRO® will comfortably snap on to your upper teeth (or upper and lower if you have a CPAP PRO II) and stay in place throughout sleep. Since the upper teeth always stay in perfect relationship with the nose, you can sleep in any position and all the nasal components stay in place eliminating the leaks, the skin irritation and sleepless nights!

Will CPAP PRO work with my existing CPAP, BiPAP, or PAP machine?
CPAP PRO® works with all CPAP, BiPAP, and PAP systems. Each individual with respect to tolerating CPAP pressure is unique, and in most instances nasal pillow CPAP interfaces are recommend with pressures 13 or less. However we do have patients using CPAP PRO® at pressures in the 18-20 range with good results! At higher prescribed CPAP pressures it would be advisable to consult with your sleep specialist.
Do I have to bite down on the mouthpiece all night long to keep it in place?

Should everyone use a Boil 'n Bite mouthpiece? What about dentures?
Patients with serious dental problems should consult with their dentist before utilizing CPAP PRO® or CPAP PRO II®. Since both units snaps on to the patient's teeth, in certain cases it can be used with removable dentures if you can leave your dentures in place during sleep. Additionally, patients that are sensitive to hot foods, liquids or are emotionally concerned about this technique should not use the Boil 'N Bite fitting procedure, but should consult with their dentist to discuss the preparation of a customized CPAP PRO® dental mouthpiece.
How does CPAP PRO provide a better night's sleep?
With severe skin irritation, annoying leakage and the need to constantly tighten straps, it is almost impossible for the patient to reach essential "REM" sleep with conventional masks. By eliminating these annoyances with CPAP PRO® , our patients tell us they're sleeping more comfortably and more soundly and waking up refreshed.
If you are an open mouth breather our CPAP PRO II goes one step futhere and gently holds your mouth closed without painful straps or headgear improving CPAP effectiveness.
Does CPAP PRO have exhalation holes?
Directly under the nasal puffs on each tube there is an exhalation hole. These holes are surrounded by a unique foam ring with millions of microscopic air holes. The exhaled air is silently diffused through these foam rings without blowing into your face.
