If you play sports, it is important that you consult us for special precautions. A mouthguard is always recommended to protect your teeth, lips and braces. Just let us know if you need a mouthguard and we will give you one that is designed to be worn with braces.
Injuries during sports are common. Most of the time, minor bumps and bruises are not a problem. Many injuries, however, can be made worse if braces are involved. In case of any accident involving the face, check your mouth and the appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or appliances are severely damaged, contact us or your dentist immediately.
