How do I keep my athletic mouthguard clean?

To keep your athletic mouthguard clean, rinse it with cool water or mouthwash before and after each use. Gently brush it with a toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to remove any debris and bacteria. Regularly soak the mouthguard in a solution of water and denture or mouthguard cleaner to ensure it stays fresh and germ-free. Store it in a ventilated case when not in use to prevent bacterial growth. Avoid exposing the mouthguard to high temperatures, such as hot water or direct sunlight, as this can warp its shape.

What is the process for getting a custom athletic mouthguard?

Getting a custom athletic mouthguard involves a quick visit to our office to take impressions of your teeth and create a precise model of your mouth. This model is then sent to a dental lab, where the custom mouthguard is crafted to fit your teeth perfectly. Once your new mouthguard arrives at our office, we will schedule a quick appointment for you to come in and try it on. Once any final adjustments are made, you’re free to take it home and begin using it!

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
