Playing Sports

Some patients may think that if they have braces on their teeth, they must refrain from any contact sports. This is absolutely not true! Having braces is no reason to stop kicking goals or running for a touchdown.Sports

However, in order to take care of your braces – and prevent injuries — we always advise our patients to wear a mouthguard while playing sports. If you don’t have a mouthguard, please contact our office and we’ll be happy to provide one for you.

Accurate impressions (molds) of your teeth will be done to ensure that your mouthguard is comfortable and protects your teeth and gums. The mouthguards are available in a variety of colors — possibly matching the colors of your sports team!
