A Guide to Caring for Your Mouthguard

Retainer

If you participate in sports, protecting your smile while you play is essential. Injuries to the mouth and jaw are some of the most common injuries reported by athletes. Even if you don’t participate in a “contact” sport, accidents can happen when other people are involved in competitive gamesmanship. A mouthguard can protect your smile while you play sports, but you need to take care of your mouthguard while not in use.

Gently scrub your mouthguard with a toothbrush and toothpaste after each use, and store it in a protective case. Keep your mouthguard in a cool, dry place. Do not chew or cut pieces off of your mouthguard, and have it replaced if you notice that is has become worn or if it no longer fits properly.

To have a custom mouthguard designed for you or your child, visit Dr. Charles M. Marks, D.D.S. Dr. Marks and his dental associates are conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan. Our goal is to help minimize sports related dental injuries. Visit our website to learn more about our dentists, or call us toll-free at (212) 279-1232 to schedule your mouthguard consultation.
