Orthodontic Mouthguards at Smile Orthodontics
Protect Your Teeth, Mouth, and Braces
Did you know that almost 40% of all dental injuries are sports related? If you wear braces, the risks to your teeth are even greater, particularly in contact sports, thanks to having all that metal in your mouth.
Custom Mouthguards Protect You and Your Investment
Most contact sports require athletes to wear mouthguards. Properly fitted mouthguards help protect both an athlete’s teeth and the other athletes on the field. But once we fit your braces, your old mouthguard may not fit properly. An ill-fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable, it’s also less effective at protecting you from impact, injury, and damage.
Braces are an investment worth protecting. Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces. Stray balls and other athletes coming in contact with your orthodontic equipment can be a painful experience. Not only that, excessive contact can damage brackets and cause delays in orthodontic treatment.
