Treat Your Custom Mouthguard Right

A customized mouthguard can last for a long time if you care for it. Follow these recommendations:

  • Brush your mouthguard with a a toothbrush and water after wearing it.
  • Clean your mouthguard occasionally with soap and warm water. Avoid hot water, which can warp your mouthguard.
  • Let your sports mouthguard air dry completely before you put it away.
  • Store it in a sturdy container with vents so air can flow around it.
  • Remember to clean the container periodically.

All Athletes Can Use a Comfortable Mouthguard

Everyone knows to wear mouthguards for contact sports like football. We recommend using one for activities like bicycling and skateboarding, too. You should wear a mouthguard during any sport that involves running, jumping, or throwing or catching an object that could cause an injury. Even if you’re wearing a helmet, you’ll also benefit from a mouthguard.
