During sleep, it is common for individuals to experience mouth movement. However, for those who suffer from teeth grinding and clenching, this movement may result in grinding against their mouth guard. As a consequence, teeth can become damaged and gums may recede.

Your policy is the determining factor when it comes to coverage. Usually, dental insurance does not provide coverage for items such as sleep-apnea mouth guards or night guards.

Every day after waking up, make sure to rinse your mouth guard with warm water and use a gentle toothbrush and toothpaste to gently brush it. Finally, store the mouth guard in a clean and cool place.
