Instructions

It is CRITICAL to follow all the instructions to prepare for treatment. Your procedure WILL NOT be carried out, if these precautions are not followed. We reserve the right to cancel or postpone surgery if any of the instructions are not followed. If you have any questions, please call or text (408) 505-1777. Notify our practice of any changes to your health before your procedure.

Diet

  • You do not need to worry about eating beforehand as you will not be sedated. Have a meal before you come in. The appointment could take longer and you do not want to be hungry during the procedure.

Oral hygiene

  • Please brush your teeth before the treatment like you normally do.

Clothing

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing for the procedure. Your clothes may stain during the procedure so dress accordingly. Wear Flat-soled shoes that support your ankle.

Taking care of your mouthguard

Cleaning

  • Rinse immediately after wearing and let it dry before putting it in a case
  • Use liquid dish detergent or hand soap to clean your appliance. A little mild soap plus warm water will do a great cleaning job. While you’re at it, get a brush just for the appliance — because, while it’s fine for plastic, you don’t want to brush your teeth with soap!
  • Put a towel in the sink basin when you clean your appliance. Soapy appliances (especially dentures) can be slippery, and can be damaged by dropping — and that’s an expensive mishap.
  • Consider investing in an ultrasonic cleaner. These inexpensive countertop devices are an excellent way to get the tiny ridges and crevices of your appliance really clean.

Case

  • Always store your mouthuard in a case. When you are not wearing your guard it is important that you keep it stored in a case. Many people store their guard in their bathroom, but over time the steam and humidity in the bathroom can cause the guard to warp. We recommend that you keep the guard stored in your bedroom or on your nightstand instead. Be careful not to store your guard anywhere subject to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  • Cleaning your guard can become a wasted effort if you put a clean night guard into a dirty case. Keep the case clean by hand washing it every few days with regular dishwashing soap or castile soap. Avoid placing the case in the dishwasher as the high temperature may melt or warp the plastic. After washing, allow the case to dry as to prevent bacteria growth.
Call your specialist if...
  • You develop an allergic reaction (rash, itching etc.)
  • You develop a fever
  • You develop a swelling
  • You notice a pimple forming on your gums
  • You have difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Pain increases over time and or becomes severe
  • You have any concerns or questions
