Just like teeth or dentures it’s important to keep your stop snoring mouthpiece clean and germ-free. The season doesn’t matter.

Hot, humid summer weather brings uncomfortable nights and also needs you take more care with oral hygiene, as germs breed more rapidly. The winter is no different, as central heating can cause bacteria to proliferate.

Regular cleaning and care will not just keep your mouthpiece fresh and pleasant tasting, it will also keep it free from stains if you adopt the right cleaning solution programme.

Equally important is the fact that good appliance care will extend the life of your vital mouthpiece and make the need for replacement less frequent.

Lets not forget that the prevention of germs in this way is vital part of helping you to keep a healthy mouth. It helps you to keep your teeth, and means you need to have less dental treatment. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease and the better you prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance you will have of keeping your teeth for life.

Keeping your oral appliance germ free is an important part of your own personal daily routine to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and as part of a constant strategy to provide improved products to support customers, SleepPro have focused very closely on this important aspect of oral hygiene.

Recently a new liquid cleaner has been added to the range that is specifically formulated with the same antibacterial components as their successful specialist cleaning tablets, Fresh & Clean.

SleepPro Daily Cleaning Liquid is designed for daily use, by applying a small amount of liquid directly onto your mouthpiece and brushing it gently, paying attention to the small nooks and crevices that could harbour debris and bugs. Afterwards rinse it under cold running water to leave it fresh and hygienically clean. Alternatively you can clean your existing mouthpiece regularly with Fresh & Clean tablets. Each pack contains 20 tablets and is ideal for at least weekly use to keep your SleepPro fresh and clean.

Used sparingly, one bottle of Liquid Cleaner will last up to 6 months and can be purchased singly, or with our cleaning tablets, which provides a deep clean soak option for a perfect weekly or bi-weekly cleaning regime.

Recognising the importance of oral hygiene, SleepPro they have also added a special anti-microbial protection polymer in the making two of the most popular and effective appliances.

This protection has now been built into the two latest versions of SleepPro Custom and SleepPro Easifit, named Custom AM and Easifit AM to set them apart from the basic version, and for only a tiny price premium they’ll provide you with complete protection from germs with that mouthpiece. The most important benefit of an antimicrobial additive, aside from offering protection, is that it does not change the product into which it is integrated.

It will not affect the aesthetics of products, it will have no negative impact on performance, and it will not wear off or wash away.

The new AM technology not only makes your SleepPro mouthpiece more hygienic, but keeps it fresher for longer, as well as protecting both the surface of the appliance and helping to preserve a good comfortable fit. It provides long-lasting protection by creating a surface barrier upon which microbes cannot survive and extends the lifetime of the oral appliance.

They’re fully approved by the NHS who regularly issue them direct to snoring and sleep apnoea sufferers in many hospitals – and as well as stopping you from snoring, they’ll now protect you from most germs and infection.

Take good care of your mouthpiece and it will take good care of you.
