bacteria on night guard
December 5, 2015 - 5:20 pm

I’ve been wearing a night guard for years due to 2 cracked teeth.  My biggest problem with a night guard has been bacteria, and I’ve soaked the bite guard daily in mouth wash (not very natural), but this is what has helped me avoid sinus headaches.  Im interested in whether anyone else has concern with bacteria on the bite guards.

What about soaking it in vinegar instead?

You can purchase a dental sanitizing device instead. They are relatively affordable and this device will use UV light to effectively clean your mouth guard.
