So...reboiled it, with the plug in, and bit down good and hard to make sure there were no holes left.

The mouthguard was very effective at locking my jaws together. But that didn't stop air from leaking into my mouth, puffing up my cheeks, and escaping with hisses that kept my hubby up all night. Plus, I started drooly and ended dry, dry, dry...for me, at least, this idea is a fail. :(

Old thread but a real great piece of advice. My AHI was shooting up and it was because my jaw had started relaxing at night; just like in the video. I would like to add that you should get several as it is easy to melt the mouthguard mentioned in the link if you leave it in the hot water for more than the recommended time. I personally don't need directions as long as I have enough do-overs on hand to correct the mess up from the first try.

BEFORE 80-100 L/min WITH MOUTHGUARD ~ 10 L/Min with very very low AHI - Thanks TheLankyLefty for a great suggestion!

Well, if you are the Jason who did the video on the main site describing the mouthguard use, THANK YOU! Wish every sleep clinic had a person like you that a patient could consult with as their therapy went along rather that blunder in the dark. Took me almost a year to get mask leaks down from 80 - 100 L/min to under 10-15 L/min and my AHIs next to nothing now.
