AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR NEW NIGHT GUARD

We’ve prepared instructions for the after care of your new night guard. If you are ever unsure of what to do, please call our office at 780-849-2233.

You have just received your new night guard, here are a few things you should know:

Care to Ensure Success

  • Wear your Appliance at night time only, unless otherwise instructed by the dentist.

  • The appliance should fit securely- if it seems loose please call the office to have it adjusted.

  • Your teeth should glide smoothly in all directions on the appliance. If you notice unusual wear such as a groove in the appliance, please call the office to have it adjusted accordingly.

  • Call the office if you experience anything unusual regarding your teeth, gums or jaw joint.

  • Please bring your Appliance to your regular dental checkup so the doctor can examine it for any repairs or adjustments.

  • Brush and floss your teeth before use. Trapping debris and plaque under the appliance is unhealthy for your teeth and gums.

  • Clean the appliance after each use by rinsing it under cool water (Never hot). Use toothpaste or a soft toothbrush when cleaning the appliance. You may soak it in Polident denture cleaner to remove plaque or bacteria and to prevent it from staining.

DO NOT

  • Eat or drink with the appliance in your mouth.

  • This appliance is custom fit for your use only. Please do not give it to another person for their use.

  • Do not rinse under hot or boiling hot water as it may distort the fit of your appliance.

  • Do not attempt to file or alter your appliance in any way.

If you have any questions, concerns or are unsure of what to do,

do not hesitate to call our office (780) 849-2233
