Braces & Playing Sports
You can still play the sports you love during your orthodontic treatment. You just have to take extra precautions to protect your orthodontic appliances and the inside of your mouth!
Since braces are made of metal and wires, their presence in your mouth can cause a lot of damage if you sustain a blow to the face. The appliances themselves may also be damaged. Plus, because your teeth will be a bit looser during orthodontic treatment, they can be more easily damaged during impact.
A custom-made mouthguard can help:
- Protect your teeth from potential injury when you play sports
- Reduce the risk of facial fractures
- Lower the chance of concussion
