Snoring is not a pleasant experience for anyone. Snoring is a sign that you don’t get enough air at night. As a result, it makes it difficult for anyone to sleep well. If that is the case, you may be wondering how to stop snoring. Using snore guards in London will resolve your sleeping problem. 

Once you have decided to get a mouthguard for snoring, you should take good care of it. Regular use can cause mouthguards to tear. Furthermore, unclean mouthpieces tend to harbour bacteria.

Cleaning your snore guards

To help you make your mouthpiece last longer, here are five easy cleaning tips you can do:

1. Always store your dental device in its case.

Leaving the nightguards out in the open can lead to dust and particles building up. Keeping them in their protective cases will extend their lifespan and keep them safe. Furthermore, you won’t lose them.  Additionally, it is vital to keep the case clean. To remove dirt from the mouthguard case, you can use dishwashing detergent. 

2. Rinse immediately after wearing your mouthpiece 

Make it a habit to rinse your anti-snoring device. Rinse in warm water to remove any debris or plaque on the surface. In addition, rinsing with warm water kills the bacteria around your device. 

3. Clean with baking soda and water.

Aside from cleaning your mouthguard with toothpaste, you can mix baking soda and water to form a paste. Let it rest for three minutes after brushing the paste onto your device. After three minutes, rinse your device under cold water. 

4. After washing, let it dry completely. 

You don’t want bacteria to grow on your mouthguards. Before storing them, make sure to dry them completely. Dry the device for thirty minutes with a clean cloth on a flat surface. 

5. Deep clean your snore guard every week.

There are now readily available denture cleaners that you can purchase. Read the instructions carefully on how to use it. Make sure to talk to your dentist about the compatibility of the cleanser with your custom-made mouthguard.
