Sports-minded teens and adults can still enjoy their favorite sports and retain a straight, attractive smile. Sports and braces might seem like an unlikely combination but with the right orthodontic mouthguard, they don't have to be. In addition to protecting the jaw, teeth and gums, a mouthguard also offers protection for braces.

Some Sports Require Mandatory Mouth Guards

Contact sports such as boxing, soccer and football often require an orthodontic mouthguard to be worn. Even low-contact sports and casual play puts you at risk for injuries to the mouth, gums and teeth. Contact with other players, as well as sports equipment like balls, bats and racquets can result in fractured tooth roots, chipped teeth, dental appliance damage, broken teeth and other serious mouth injuries.

An Orthodontic Mouthguard Offers Protection for Braces

For the sports player wearing braces, damage of materials could require expensive treatment. Using the right mouth guard allows additional width and room for the braces as well as your gums and teeth. When in use, the mouth guard should be comfortable while still allowing you to breathe easily. Though there are mouthguards available to retail stores, those designed to accommodate braces aren't able to be altered. Boil and bite mouth guards can be shaped to fit your mouth once the plastic is heated.

Love, love, love the whole staff here! I am being treated for adult orthodontic surgical braces to correct my underbite. Throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, finance/payment, greeting/exit of each appointment, and of course the talented and genuine staff that treat your teeth each time,
We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
