What if my child currently has braces? Custom mouth guards will not work for kids with braces. However, most kids in braces will already have a generic mouth guard from their orthodontist or dentist. Your child’s orthodontist should have "braces friendly" guards available.
What if my child will be getting braces soon or has a space or loose teeth? Kids whose teeth are in transition should be fine. If there is a space or loose tooth/teeth, the staff knows how to create some relief in the mouth guard to make room for erupting teeth and any other situation like that. In other words, they are made so the kids can get through the season with the same mouth guard.
Can other family members get a mouth guard too? If siblings or parents want a mouth guard, that's great! There WON'T be any charge for them either.
What colors are available for mouth guards? The MN Hockey 2018-19 handbook states that all players, including goalkeepers, are required to wear a colored (non-clear) internal mouthpiece, which covers all remaining teeth of one jaw, customarily the upper. Reese Orthodontics currently has red, blue and orange colors available.
Please call Reese Orthodontics if you have questions at 763-544-8745!
