If you wear braces or a retainer, it is imperative for you to wear a mouthguard during contact sports. Ask a team member for a complimentary mouthguard and we will properly fit it.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR MOUTHGUARD

Similar to a retainer, braces, or any other special dental appliance, it is important to take care of your mouthguard by storing it properly and keeping it clean.  Equally important is to know when to replace your old mouthguard with a new one. Here are a few simple tips:

  • Gently scrub your mouthguard after each use with a tooth brush and toothpaste.
  • Store your mouthguard in a protective case.
  • Do not leave your mouthguard in the sun or in hot water, because it may melt or become deformed.
  • Do not wear a retainer with your mouthguard.
  • Do not chew on or cut pieces off of your mouthguard.
  • Replace your mouthguard at the beginning of every new sports season. You should also replace your mouthguard if you notice it has become worn and no longer fits properly.
