Germs on Mouthguards Can Cause IllnessMost adults and kids today understand the importance of wearing a #mouthguard when playing contact sports, especially while wearing braces. Blows to the mouth are painful enough without brackets and wires cutting into your lips and tongue making it worse. Teeth are actually less prone to injury when wired together as a single unit during orthodontic treatment. A mouth guard protects the braces and serves as addition protection, further reducing the possibility of tooth and jaw injury.
