Your new snore guard prescribed by Craniofacial Pain Center Of Colorado’s Arvada, Colorado clinic has been designed to comfortably hold your mouth and soft palate in position for improved air flow when sleeping. This will reduce snoring and breathing interruption problems.
There are several different styles of snore guards, including tongue stabilizing devices, mandibular advancement devices, as well as boil-and-bite units that conform to the unique shape of your mouth. Each design will require some daily care and cleaning will remove bacterial plaque from the snore guard, while also serving to extend its lifespan.
Each morning you will need to clean and refresh the snore guard by rinsing it under water and brushing it with a soft bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. If the unit has hinges, be sure to brush them thoroughly to free any trapped plaque. If your snore guard needs further refreshing, you can soak it briefly in a mixture of water and antiseptic mouthwash.
Once it’s been cleaned and dried you should store the unit device in the case provided.
