Why the 15-mm Angled Mouthpiece?

I spoke to my respiratory therapist about the 15-mm angled mouthpiece. He was not able to come up with an adapter for that mouthpiece and said that even if I use it, it would cause a smaller volume of ventilated air get to me than the present one. What is the advantage to using the angled mouthpiece?

The advantage of the 15-mm angled mouthpiece is that it essentially clips over the lower teeth and so is easier to retain and the tubing that projects from it is downward and not in front of the face.
