sports mouthguards

How long will my mouthguard last?
To ensure a mouthguard is fully effective, they should be replaced every 12 months.  A mouthguard may also need to be replaced if major changes occur to the teeth like restorations or loss of teeth. 

Children's mouthguards need to be changed more frequently as their mouth can change when they grow or when adult teeth push through.

How do I look after my mouthguard?
A clean mouthguard will last longer than a dirty one. 

Mouthguards need to be rinsed in cold, soapy water after use, dried and stored in a plastic container (we will provide you with one of these at the time of fitting). As mouthguards can distort under higher temperatures, they should be kept in a cool place.
