Sport

Can you play sport while wearing braces? Yes you can.

Your teeth are probably a bit stronger with braces on since they are “braced” together by the archwire. However, a strong blow to the mouth could still loosen or break individual teeth and the lips and cheeks are at high risk of being torn on the brackets and arch wire.

A mouthguard is essential for any sport where an accidental blow to the mouth is possible as well as for activities such as bike -riding and skateboarding.

Since the teeth are continually moving, the mouthguard should preferably be of a remouldable type, as shown here.  New mouthguards in various colours are also now available.

Contact your nearest office for colours and prices.
