A night guard can protect your teeth as long as you protect (and wear) the night guard!
Night Guard Care and Maintenance
The purpose of your night guard is to prevent bone loss, tooth wear, and sensitivity caused by clenching and grinding. It is very important that you wear it every night. With proper care it should last many years.
Recommended Cleaning Instructions
Brush and floss before using the night guard Do NOT soak in mouthwash, denture cleaner or alcohol. Do NOT place in hot or boiling water or expose to excessive heat (such as direct sunlight).
