Caring for your mouthguard.
- Take the mouthguard along to your dental visits to ensure it still fits correctly. A mouthguard may need to be replaced as changes occur in your mouth, such as the eruption of permanent teeth or restorations.
- Mouthguards need to be rinsed in cold water before use. After use, dry and store in a plastic container with air vents to allow the air to circulate.
- Once in a while, clean it with soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
- Mouthguards should be kept in a cool place as they can distort if left in the sun or hot water.
