Braces for Kids in Succasunna, NJ

It’s important for all athletes to wear a mouthguard. This includes patients with braces or not. Many people believe that mouthguards are really only important for football and hockey, but soccer, basketball, cheer, baseball, wrestling and lacrosse athletes are also at risk for dental trauma. An orthodontic mouthguard is designed with a space in front of the teeth to fit over the braces. It is important not to boil your orthodontic mouthguard because your teeth will be moving during treatment.

Braces & Musical Instruments

Brass instruments such as trumpet and the reedless woodwinds such as the flute can sometimes be a challenge during orthodontic treatment. To play these instruments with braces forces musicians to focus on their embouchure technique as they adjust to the braces and results in the student becoming a more skilled player. Products such as “braces bumpers,” silicone bumpers that fit over the braces, can protect the lips from the corners of the braces.

Braces & Water

Drinking water is always essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle; our bodies need it! Water is even more important with braces because it can help flush sugars and food particles out from around the braces and reduce the risk of cavities, white spots and staining. Drinks high in acids and sugars such as soda and sports drinks are the most damaging to teeth. It is recommended that you water down sports drinks to reduce the acid and sugar concentration while still benefiting from the hydration and electrolytes.
