Don’t let your braces keep you from playing your favorite sports! You can continue to participate in any sport you choose even while undergoing orthodontic treatment from Dr. Frost. It’s important that you consult our Mesa Office for special precautions before playing a sport with dental braces.
When playing sports where there is a possibility of getting hit in the mouth a specially designed mouthguard can prevent injury and keep you braces in tact. This protective mouthguard protects your teeth and braces while acting as a lip protector and to prevent your braces from cutting the insides of your mouth. Light contact sports will be made safer with a simple lip protector. Dr. Frost can make a custom-fitted mouth guards for sports in Mesa – Gilbert Arizona as well as simple lip protectors.
In case of any accident involving the face, check your mouth and the orthodontic appliances immediately for any damage that may have occurred. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, phone our office at once for an appointment. In the meantime, treat your discomfort as you would treat any general soreness. You can temporarily relieve the discomfort with wax or by rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater.
