Do you have a child or loved one who plays sports and wears braces? We know that it seems like the supply list for sports is endless, but we have one more item to add. We encourage you to invest in a mouthguard for your child. It will save you a significant amount of money if your child’s mouth were to get injured. While it may seem like traditional braces, clear aligners, or a retainer will protect the teeth if the mouth were to get hit, the opposite is actually true.
