How to Wear a Mouthguard with Braces


If you have braces, you know how much time they take up.

From your first appointment to monthly adjustments, we know you’d rather be running drills on the football field. No offense to your orthodontist, but you’re probably dreaming of your last day in the dental chair.

Before that victorious day comes, keep your progress on track. And if you’re a football player, that means you must be selective about your mouthguard in the meantime.

Braces may look like they’re adding an extra layer of protection, but they actually put your gums and cheeks at more risk for injuries.

So, can you wear a mouthguard with braces?

You can’t hear us, but we’re shouting YES! But, you’ll need a specific mouthguard for braces whether you’re training or playing.

What type of football mouthguard is recommended?

As any seasoned player knows, you’re going to need a game plan to match your preferences. First, decide if you want a boil, or non-boil option. From there, see if you can find a fit that addresses your pressing pain points. That’s why we start every design with a dental solution in mind.

Here are a few key benefits of our Battle Sports Braces Fit gear:

  • Built by a dedicated team of athletic, dental, and medical experts.
