A Prescription Snore Guard Needs Daily Care and Cleaning
posted: Oct 15, 2018.
Prescription snore guards provided by the dental specialists at Mill Valley Dental are intended to help hold the mouth and soft palate in the correct position for the clear passage of air. This can help improve minor-moderate symptoms of sleep apnea.
The specific style and designs that Dr. Sohrab Saghezchi prescribes for you will be based on your personal preference and the specific details of your mouth. Once you start using the snore guard, you will need to take some basic measures to clean and maintain it.
You will need to thoroughly rinse your snore guard under cool water each morning to remove any plaque buildup from the surface. Then you should use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to clean any of the contours and fully refresh the snore guard.
If you have a mandibular advancement device that incorporates hinges. or other contoured surfaces, you should also take special care to brush them. You can soak it briefly in a mixture of water and antiseptic mouthwash if your snore guard needs further refreshing.
After you are done rinsing and brushing, you should dry the snore guard and store it safely in the case provided.
