There are so many ways that we have found to care for these devices, and it really is up to you and what you think works best. Below is a general care sheet that is suggested from one of the larger manufacturers, SomnoMed.
Here are a few alternative methods that we have found that work for cleaning as well:
*Cleaning with a non-alcoholic mouthwash - Some patients were reporting excess build up from toothpaste so they switched to brushing it with a mild mouthwash. This helped keep it smelling fresh, while cleaning the hard to reach places. NOTE: Only use a non-alcoholic so that it does not damage the lining of your device. And no soaking, if you wish to soak the device we recommend the SomTabs.
* Cleaning with mild dish soap - Believe it or not this works well too. I have used it on my personal device and found it is good for general cleanings or if you just want to scrub it once in a while in addition to daily care.
