If you play sports, it’s important that you consult our office for special precautions, such as wearing a mouth guard. A protective mouth guard is advised for playing sports such as baseball, soccer, lacrosse and other contact sports. Be sure, however, to avoid mouth guards that custom form to your teeth as these will resist any tooth movements we are trying to achieve.
In case of any accident involving the face, check your mouth and the appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, please call our office to make an appointment. Apply ice if any swelling occurs. By using mouth guards, kids with and without braces can avoid more serious sports injuries. Accidents cannot always be prevented, but you can easily protect your mouth, so call our office today to get your FREE mouth guard.
