Please store your fangs in the contact lens case provided by me, or one you bring to your appointment. These cases will minimize the potential for breakage while outside of the mouth and better distinguish between right and left. This is probably the single most important thing you can do in your care regime to preserve the lifespan of your TBD.
Please use only the screw top type of case as flip tops have a nasty habit of opening in a purse or pocket, and TBD have an amazing way of disappearing unexpectedly.
Please keep your case clean; bacteria buildup may damage the fangs and cause an unpleasant odor. Please store them dry, not in any solution or water.
You may clean your fangs by brushing them with regular fluoride toothpaste, being sure to clean the outside AND inside thoroughly after each day of use. Left unclean, they may develop stains more rapidly and bacteria accumulation will result in an unpleasant odor. Should the fangs become heavily stained, you may soak them in Efferdent for a short while. Please do not do this often however, as the solution may cause porosity in the acrylic over time.
PLEASE DO NOT SOAK THEM IN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE OR USE A PEROXIDE BASED TOOTHPASTE ON YOUR FANGS. THE ACRYLIC WILL TURN PUMKIN ORANGE, AND CANNOT BE RETURNED TO THEIR ORIGINAL SHADE.
Please DO NOT use breath sprays such as Binaca, for they cause white spots on the fangs that are hard to remove.
**Following these instructions and care tips will greatly lengthen the life of your fangs** Employ good judgment in their use, and they will serve you well for years to come.
