Q.

Guard

Hi,
I have a gum guard from my dentist to minimise inner cheek and tongue bites.
Could you tell me how to keep it clean and durable? I know to use tooth paste or sunlight liquid, but already it smells a bit. (I think it' s made of rubber - see-through).
Also, I' ve only worn it a few nights, but when it' s off, I feel like it is still on - like I' m still wearing it. Does this go away in time?
Thanking You

do not use sunlight liquid. there will always be a slight smell no matter what you use to clean it.
brushing alone is ok.
with time the uneasy feeling will go away
