Key takeaways:

•Mouthguards prevent injuries to the teeth by providing a barrier between the braces and cheeks which act as cushions.

•You should talk to your dentist about the right mouthguard that will provide maximum protection for your cheeks, lips, and teeth.

•If your child has braces, ensure they carry a mouthguard to school and wear it to sports.

Avoid wearing a retainer or any other removable appliance, during contact sports.
