Do you play sports? Do high-impact activities? You will want to protect your mouth and your braces. We recommend using a mouthguard, which is worn over the teeth to protect them from the trauma that can happen during physical activity.
You’re investing time and money in your smile, so isn’t it important to take the right measures to protect that investment? Mouthguards make it easy. They are great for athletes who are more susceptible to a trauma injury, especially football, hockey, and wrestling athletes.
Losing permanent teeth can affect your overall health—the way you look, speak, and eat. Not only that, you could risk root damage, crown damage, and trauma to your lips, cheeks, or gums.
You only get one set of permanent teeth, so it’s important that you take good care of them. There’s no reason to avoid the activities you love either.
Depending on your budget, you can choose from a variety of mouthguards to protect your mouth, teeth, and smile. They are all made of plastic material or laminate. They should be easy to clean, unlikely to be damaged, and not restrict your speech or breathing.
