Splint Maintenance



Taking care of an occlusal splint is important for appliance longevity. Here's some tips and tricks to keep occlusal splints in good condition.


Keep it clean

  • Using a toothbrush and antibacterial soap, gently brush the splint with soap and water for a minute, rinse clean.

  • Clean both before and after use


Keep it dry

  • Ensure the splint is dry before placing in the storage case.

  • Use a storage case with ventilation holes.


Brush and Floss

  • As always, good dental hygiene will also help keep the appliance in good condition. Brush and floss regularly.


What to avoid

  • Avoid toothpaste to clean the splint, the paste is abrasive and will wear the appliance

  • Heat, the appliance is typically manufactured using heat to shape it over the teeth. So, exposing it to heat will likely distort the appliance.
