Will braces affect sports play, music lessons, and other activities for my teen?

We are often asked, "Will braces interfere with playing sports?"  The answer is..  nope! It is recommended, however, that patients protect their smiles by wearing a mouth guard when participating in any sporting activity. Mouth guards are inexpensive, comfortable, and come in a variety of colors and patterns. Please let the doctor know that one is needed.

If our patient plays a musical instrument, we gladly work with them and their music instructor to make sure braces do not interfere with upcoming concerts or competitions.

Please ask us if you have any questions regarding braces and extra curricular activities!
