Re: Cleaning a mouthpiece
If I buy old mouthpieces, that don´t look so good, the first thing I do, is putting it in the dish washer.
2. if there is still some of that old mess left, I put it in my little super sonic cleaner. This is a lillte thing where you can clean up your glasses, jewelery etc. Works great, gets it all out there.
If the rubber bite plate has only some thoothmarks I wouldn´t replace it. Over here in Germany it costs ca. 80 Euro to have only the bite plate replaced.
What I do is, I have a friend which works in a dental lab. He takes it to work and polishes it. After that, it looks like new. Doesn´t cost me 1 Cent and works great.
