How to look after your retainer / night guard
- To keep your appliance clean, clean it with cold water 2-3 times per week. In case of tartar buildup, gently brush it with a toothbrush. Avoid hot water – this can potentially change their shape if used consistently over a long period of time.
- To remove any heavy buildup, soak your appliance in a cleaning solution.
- When your appliance is not being worn, store it in its protective box for safekeeping. Do not keep them in a container without ventilation to avoid the growth of mould and bacteria.
- Always remove your retainer before you eat!
