Haven’t been cleaning my night guard properly or enough I’m worried about life threatening bacteria ?

So basically I haven’t been cleaning my night guard as much as I should and I’ve read online this can cause some potentially life threatening bacteria. I’ve started cleaning it properly now but I’m worried it might be too late would I be ill if this was the case?

    No its not too late, if it were, you would already be sick. The normal bacteria in the mouth is not life threatening. In large amounts it may cause decay and bad breath and gum disease and throat infections. So just keep it clean from now on
