Medicare wants our dental devices to last five years, but they don’t always. Most dental device manufacturers warranty their devices for a year. Usual and customary thing that we see in our office is about 2 and 1/2 years. If you have worn your teeth down significantly, to where there isn’t much left of them, then the odds are that you will be hard on your dental sleep device. And if you can wear teeth down, then you can certainly wear a dental sleep device down. All things being equal, most of our patients see their oral appliance last two to three years. Things that you can do that will prolong the life of your custom-dental device like, keep it clean. Show up for your annual follow up appointments. Take care to hold it properly when you clean it. And take care to transport it in the case you are provided from our office. Keep it from excessive heat or cold.
