Back to school and the playing fields of West Vancouver: How to protect your teeth from sports injuries


Did you know injuries to the mouth are one of the most common types of injuries for athletes? These injuries can be especially severe for athletes wearing orthodontic braces. Often made from metal,  brackets and wires used to straighten teeth can easily damage the soft tissue in the mouth – upon rough contact. Fortunately, your orthodontist or dentist can help you play safely without putting your mouth at risk by providing a comfortable, fitted mouth guard that you can wear on the field.

These mouth guards are made from impact-absorbing materials that are highly durable, allowing them to take plenty of knocks during the sports season., these guards help protect your teeth from breaking or becoming knocked out of alignment, ensuring you don’t have to undergo inconvenient or costly repairs during your orthodontic treatment.
