Your new dental appliance – Maintenance and home care

  1. Always clean your teeth before putting the appliance in your mouth. This removes the invisible layer of plaque, which contains bacteria.
  2. After removal in the morning clean the inside and outside of your appliance with a soft toothbrush and liquid detergent.
  3. To add to the level of cleanliness – once a week you can soak the appliance in a specially designed dental appliance cleaning solution (eg caldent, sterident, polident) . Do not use hot water as this can deform the appliance and do not leave in the solution for more than 30 minutes.
  4. When storing the appliance, leave the container open to make sure it is fully dry before closing to prevent mould or mildew growth.
  5. Avoid exposing the appliance to excessive heat, including direct sunlight, as it could cause distortion.
  6. Beware of dogs – they love to chew oral appliances!
  7. Remember to bring your appliance with you whenever you attend dental appointments
