Playing Sports Wearing Braces
Game, Set, Match - we have great news for athletes! You can still play sports even while undergoing orthodontic treatment! If you do play sports, it’s recommended that you wear a mouthguard in order to protect your teeth and your braces. Let your doctor know if you need help finding the right mouthguard for the best protection.
In case of a sports emergency, be sure to immediately check your mouth and your braces for any damage that may have occurred. If you notice any loose teeth or damage, please contact our office right away. You can temporarily relieve the discomfort with wax or by rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater.
We are now making custom mouthguards!!!!
After treatment is completed we recommend that you protect your beautiful smile with a custom fit mouthguard available at our office. We are excited to offer many different colors. We are proud that we are donating the cost of each sport guard to local charities.
