We are welcoming this spring with open arms!Now that spring is here, many of our patients start to play spring sports like baseball, softball and soccer. Our orthodontic teams here at Illinois and Colorado want our patients to have fun playing sports and we also want everyone to be aware of the importance of protecting your face, mouth and teeth while you’re being active. Orthodontic Experts encourages everyone who does sports to wear a mouthguard for braces while participating in games and practices. This is especially true for those who wear braces, as you can also cause severe damage to your brackets and wires. Here are a few pieces of equipment you should always wear before hitting the field.
