Patient Instructions – How to Care for SomnoBrux device:
- Rinse in cold or lukewarm water and then clean with a soft toothbrush and a mild detergent, such as liquid soap. Rinse well. DO NOT USE use toothpaste on your SomnoBrux as it may be abrasive.
- Store in water in the travel case provided. By storing in water, your SomnoBrux will not dry out and it will help prevent crack corrosion. The splint needs to be fully submerged. The case is not watertight.
- Once or twice a week we recommend you clean your SomnoBrux using our SomTabs. Dissolve one SomTab in your travel case and soak for 15 minutes. Dry with a soft cloth.
You may experience a mild plastic taste during the first use of your SomnoBrux, this will disappear with storage in clean water. Some patients with amalgam fillings may over time notice discoloration in the lining of their SomnoBrux splint. This is also relevant to patients who use Pyralvex (a solution for mouth ulcers and denture irritation). Discoloration of the material will not adversely affect the performance or longevity of your SomnoBrux. To reduce the possibility of discoloration do not drink coffee, tea or colas with the device in place. Always brush teeth thoroughly before use and maintain regular dental checkups. *Conditions apply.
