Braces and Sports
Your braces will not get you out of gym class but you should be more careful with your mouth, especially if you are athletic. A protective mouth guard is recommended for playing any sport, even soccer, to prevent your braces, mouth and teeth from damage. If you are injured, check to see the damage done to your mouth and to the braces. You should call for an appointment if your teeth are loosened or knocked out and if the braces have been damaged.
