Please wear a mouth guard during all contact sports. Do not use the traditional “boil-n-bite” mouth guards, for they do not compensate for future tooth movement and will not fit properly over your braces. Orthodontic mouth guards are available in the office. Just ask us for one. In case of an accident involving the face or teeth, check your mouth and appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, phone our office at once for an appointment.
