You may be playing organized sports or just messing around with your friends in your backyard. Braces won’t get in the way, but there are a few things to know about.
Braces connect up your teeth with the wires and this helps to protect your teeth. If you get hit in the mouth, the pressure of any blow will be spread out from one or two teeth, to more teeth and this reduces the damage.
Your lips may be cut up from the braces, but lips and cheeks heal a lot better than teeth.
