Sports & Braces

Now that summer is well under-way, many of you are getting back into organized sports or outdoor activities like hiking and biking. At TNT Orthodontics we always get asked if kids can safely play sports while undergoing orthodontic treatment. The short answer is yes; however, in order to safely protect your teeth from injury we highly recommend that you wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth. TNT will provide you with a complimentary, custom-molded mouth guard to help you reduce the risk of braces-related injury. 

If there is ever a sports-related injury, check your mouth and braces for any damage. Contact our office straight away if you notice any loose teeth or if your braces have been damaged. For temporary relief until you can get to our office, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater.
