How to Clean Mouth Guards

Here are some tips for keeping those soft night guards and athletic mouth guards clean:

  • Use hand soap with a soft bristle toothbrush to clean. Rinse well.
  • DO NOT use toothpaste; toothpaste is abrasive and will cause scratches that can pick up stain.
  • Do not soak in anything besides water.
  • To prevent distortions, use lukewarm water.
  • Make sure teeth are well brushed and flossed before wearing the guard.
  • Do not eat or drink while wearing the guard.
  • Bring your guard in for any adjustments and also to your cleaning appointments to have it checked regularly.
