having my jaw closed
What does this mean?

Re: Nasal cushions and chin straps

The chinstrap is really lightweight. It definitely feels less bulk to me. Maybe a bit more bother since there are two things to adjust rather than one. But....I don't remember reading anything about people having issues keeping their jaw shut all night. I suppose it's the same with tape. But I didn...
