Your braces are a serious investment in realigning your teeth to achieve the healthy mouth and appealing smile you deserve. If any part of your braces are bent, loosened or damaged, your treatment time will likely be increased. Oftentimes, a blow to the face during vigorous athletic activities or contact sports can damage braces and cause significant injury to your mouth, which is why Dr. John R. Schouten strongly recommends that you wear a quality mouthguard if you participate in these activities.
Many athletes complain that the mouthguards sold in stores can feel awkward and bulky or make breathing difficult. If this is the case for you, you might want to ask your orthodontist about being fitted for a custom mouthguard. This type of mouthguard is designed to fit in your mouth comfortably and make breathing easier.
