Mouthguard: Do's and Don'ts

No one wants to replace their guard over and over again. Even though our prices are affordable, and do not dentist visits, it’s still nice to save money and time by preserving the one you have, as best as you can!

Given that we’ve written several ‘How to’ blogs on caring for your guard, we thought  “why not summarise all these blogs in to a simple Do’s and Don’ts list?” So here it is, a quick-and-easy list to read that will provide you with the knowledge you need to look after your guard and extend its life as best you can!

 Do's

Don't's

  • Rinse thoroughly after each use
  • Gently brush with a toothbrush to clear away any debris
  • Pat dry until all moisture is removed
  • Keep it in a safe, germ-free place where it can continue to dry
  • Soak in non-alcoholic mouthwash to freshen-up the taste. Unless you like your mouthguard tasting like last week’s footy socks.
  • Use denture cleaners to thoroughly clean your guard weekly
  • Leave guard where your dog can easily grab it
  • Clean your guard with alcohol, harsh chemicals or abrasive materials
  • Use hot/boiling water when cleaning your guard
  • Trim your mouthguard
  • Keep your guard in direct sunlight. Like a traditional Vampire, it will melt, not sparkle.
  • Chew on your guard during play

Mouthguards can become pretty unhygienic very quickly if not looked after! The better condition they’re kept in, the longer they’ll last. Stick to these do's and don'ts and your guard will stay awesome!
