What You Need to Know About Night Guards Maintenance

When you invest in a high-quality night guard, it’s crucial to clean and maintain it—it’s one of the most essential parts of owning and using night guards. Not only does cleaning help prolong a night guard’s life, but it also helps you maintain good hygiene, which is key considering the fact that you have to place it in your mouth every day—it shouldn’t become a home for bacteria and germs.

Here are some top maintenance tips to keep in mind:

  • Wash your mouth guard gently with warm water after every use.
  • Use a soft toothbrush (without toothpaste) to gently brush off the night guard during daily cleaning.
  • Always store night guards when they’re completely dry. Wet night guards in closed cases may become a breeding ground for bacteria.
  • Deep clean once a month using denture cleansers. Make sure anything you use to clean the mouthguards is non-abrasive.
  • Keep the night guard case clean as well.
