Grinding mouth guard- yellow!

Dear All,

i have a grinding mouth guard which i dont even use very occassionaly as i feel very irritated and feel like vomitting when i wear it. anyhow i am trying hard to use as often as possible as i m a frequent grinder. Now inspite of low usage i have noticed that it has started turning yellow. what is the way to clean this. moreover i put it in water after use. My dentist didint give me a case for it so i have purchased a small normal bottle kinda thing to keep it after use while its filled with water. is there anything wrong in how i m maintaining it.. please guide m...

I put mine in a glass with a weak solution of Milton whenever it's starting to look a bit discoloured. I'm not sure if Milton is a worldwide product or not - it's used for sterilising babies bottles.

Hey Pinkjacket,

Sounds to me like your body may be trying to tell you something. If your mouthguard makes you feel that awful, it's probably not helping. I've been on these sites for quite a while now and have read countless stories of people who developed TMJD or worsened their TMJD by persisting with mouthguards that weren't right for them!

I had a specialist make me a very expensive mouthguard and it worsened my grinding actually. It softened and essentially became a chew toy in my mouth while I was sleeping. The specialist insisted I continue use but I'm glad I didn't as it was definitely worsening my situation. Mouthguards are not always the solution to grinding and they can often be harmful. I think the body's response to the nightguard is an important indicator as to whether it is helping or harming.

All the best!
