    Mouthguards for Braces

    Ender's tooth injury thread reminded me to ask:

    Does anyone know of any mouthpieces that can be used with braces? I recently got them (last Friday, actually) and right now they are sore as ****. However, whenever this pain wears off and I get off my liquid diet, I'll be going back to boxing.

    Still though, I filled out my damn registration sheets and paid my cash, and I would like to get some of my moneys worth in sparring.

    So does anyone have any suggestions of what I should do?

    Boil & Bite mouthguards should be able to accomodate the braces.

    haha take that brace face!


    no seriously though- when I was younger, I had braces for four years, it sucked soooo much balls. Do evreything the orthadontist tells you or else you'll have to keep them on for longer. I always used to break my braces and not do what he told me and at the end he said because of all my brace brakeings and whatnot, I added an extra year on to my time.
    What I would if I was you- Your orthadontist should have given you some wax to put on your braces to help your lips get used to them. When you go back to boxing, I'd just coat my braces with that before putting the mouth guard on. Or, you'll just have to keep buying different mouth peices as your teeth change, and re-molding them to fit your mouth as it changes.

    According to what it says, no boiling required.

    When I had braces, I always used a boil and bite one - my orthodontist provided specially designed ones that actually did work better than ones from the store.

    Failing that, boil and bite ones are what folks seem to use.

    And cowboy up. Braces do NOT hurt that badly, and I even had headgear.

    I suggest asking your Ortho what you should do. They can probably make a custom mouthgaurd for you..

    Hah! Braces are the mouthguard! I once slipped on ice while running in a full sprint and smacked teeth-first into concrete. Not a single tooth came out of place thanks to the miracle science of orthodontistry. Of course, I blew a few brackets off but they were repaired free of charge the next day.
    Around the same time the following year I caught a White-Out bottle in the face and blew another bracket off which required a dental emergency clinic to cement the tooth to the wire in order to keep it in place until it could be fixed after the holidays. Without braces the tooth would have come out for sure.

    I'm not so much worried about the teeth as I am worried about the easy-to-tear-on-unforgiving-metal-jaggedy-things-in-my-mouth lips.

    Can Chaser, although the image of you with headgear braces on (thinking Lisa and the big book of British smiles simpson episode) is hilarious, I just got them on 2 days ago and have been unable to eat any sort of solid of any amount (managed to eat one timbit and one soft cookie during my 8 hour shift at my job today by rolling them around in my mouth until they broke down enough for me to swallow 'em, talk about a liquid diet).
    Maybe I should get an IV bag and eat my food like that? hehe

    Curious if anyone has tried these, it says in the description:
    "Helps protect athletes with braces or other dental bridgework"
    However thanks for looking Jaguar, I'd seen those brace ones around, but I'm trying to find a double one if at all possible.

    Your lips are going to get hacked up day-to-day anyway. The Shock Dr. Braces moutguard is just going to function like a normal mouthguard that accomodates a different tooth shape.

    Did you just get the braces on? Because if you think that is pain, Lord help you if you ever need a power chain.

    Up yours, Tom.

    Just wait 'til they start tightening them, put connector-rubber-bands, or springs on.

    Did your ortho tell you that you weren't allowed to eat solid food? Pansy.

    Anywho. When I had to get stitches on my lip after a vaulting practice, mummy decided that I needed a mouthguard. I've never seen a double one for braces, but in general, by keeping your jaw together, the top one will somewhat also protect your bottom lip.
