If you are playing any type of contact sport, a mouth guard is a must! Mouth guards serve two important roles during contact sports:

  • To protect your teeth from damage or displacement.
  • To prevent your teeth from being forcibly snapped or closed together suddenly during an impact, as this can result in a concussion.

Simply let us know that you play contact sports, and we will provide you with a complimentary sports mouth guard designed to fit over your braces.

If you feel that your teeth have been displaced or moved from suffering a blow during a sporting event, please notify either our office or your family dental office as soon as possible.

Orthodontic elastics or any other form of removable appliance should be taken out during sports to prevent inhalation of the object.

Remember to show off your ‘winning smile’ during sporting events!
