Night guards (grinding guards) protect the teeth from the damage cause by constant grinding and clenching associated with bruxism. Unfortunately, although night guards are made to withstand the pressure of your teeth grinding, they will not last forever. How long a night guard lasts depends on a variety of factors, including the severity and extent of your grinding, the type of guard that you use, and the care you take of it between usage occasions. With proper care, most night guards will last for 2 years before you need a replacement.
As you may know, bacteria can adhere to removable oral devices, such as a night guard, and, if they remain on the device undisturbed, they can replicate rapidly to form mature biofilms on those devices because they remain in place for most of the day.
These biofilms will contain benign species from within the normal oral biome, as well as potentially pathogenic species that can cause dental problems, such as Streptococcus mutants, the primary bacterial species associated with the development of dental caries. Biofilms on devices that are stored between usage occasions, like night guards, may also harbor non-oral organisms derived from the device’s storage case or container. If these biofilms remain on the devices between usage occasions, they can create issues, such as impaired device aesthetics and undesirable taste and odor. In addition, there may be a risk of developing bacteria-induced diseases and conditions in the mouth and, perhaps, elsewhere in the body. Thus, the buildup of bacterial biofilm on night guards can negatively impact a user’s experience and compliance to its use.
