  • I assure them that I have had patients play every contact sport imaginable, with any appliance that we construct in this office.
  • Also, we adapt the mouthpieces required by some sports to fit around any orthodontic appliance we construct. Hence, we feel confident that sports will not interfere with the timing of orthodontics, nor do they adversely affect the decision as to whether or not a patient should have orthodontics.
  • In our minds, orthodontics is not a barrier to sports, nor is participation in sports a barrier to orthodontics.
